Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Again I am amazed at the depth of knowlege The Mudcat draws upon!

I have never heard Katy Cruel sung, but it seems that I will have to speed up how I was learning it. I was singing it rather slow, almost like a lament.

Sandy, I know some of the sound tapes can be listened to at the Library of Congress. Are the field recordings of Sam Hinton accessible? If so, are they in the Folk Life Center? I sometimes go over there during my lunch break.
