G'day Wolfgang,

I guess I'm going to have to sort out the economics of getting a copy of The Essential Ewan MacColl Songbook out ot this side of the world!m It does sound as if the "thematic" ballads are in the new book.

It had been my intention to indicate the different 'ballads' ... and I would agree that there are three different ones ... by typographic differences - but my html is a bit dodgy at the best of times ... and, in the is case, I maintain that the first error I detected (using the new preview facility) - and corrected ... just refused to come right!

If you are interested - and you PM me a private e-mail address - I will send an MS Word (or, safer perhaps) an RTF file of the properly formatted text ... as I hear it. This will be more helpful than the flawed html version on the 'cat.
