Information and help wanted please.
I have the excellent Folk Legacy album of Richard Chase telling 'Jack Tales from the Southern Appalachians'.
Does anybody, own a copy - can they tell me if it came with a booklet (if so, I have lost mine) - can the let me have a copy of the tale transcriptions.
There's a right arm on offer here!
Thanks in anticipation,
Jim Carroll

Hi, Jim-
I have the album, too, and it's a good one. I have lots of Folk-Legacy booklets, but didn't get one for the Richard Chase album. There's one for almost every album, so I must have missed this one somehow.
In general, there is a charge for the booklets, which come separate from the CD's. Contact Sandy Paton at folklegacy.com. He'll know for sure.

Not exactly what you're after but I have a copy of Richard Chase's book, American Folk Tales and Songs. Some of them might be in there.

Mr. Chase was an imposing figure at the first University Of Chicago Folk Festival in 1961. An old gentleman with a long gnarled walking stick in a leather cape---not unlike Gandalf 45 years later. I got to talk with him extensively walking around that campus in the cold air of February before global warming had taken hold. His tall tales, then, helped me onto that path to becoming a decent "liar" myself.

His LP album for the Tradition Records label---alternating tracks with Paul Clayton and Jean Ritchie, is still a huge favorite of mine---as is the one Sandy Paton and Lee Haggerty issued of Richard Chase on Folk Legacy Records.

If there is a booklet to go with the Richard Chase CD that, I'm sure, is now available from Folk Legacy, you can get the notes from Sandy at www.folklegacy.com for a dollar or two at most.

Thanks all,
Not sure that there was a booklet with the album.
One of the tales is included in Chase's Jack Tales and one in his American Folk Tales and Songs, but I'm short of 'Jack and the Three Sillies'.
Will try Sandy Paton.

Have just been told by Sandy Paton that there was no booklet with that album.
Thanks for all your help.

I have the book (autographed!) that Little Robyn cited- somewhere- but have never seen the album. I also bet that the book covers some or all of the stories he told for the album, though he did have quite a repertoire.

Are there notes from the back of the LP album that somebody can post? The CD has the original album cover, but I don't think the back is the same as the LP. Here's the information from the CD:

RICHARD CHASE
Tells Three "Jack Tales" from the Southern Appalachians
The masterful story-teller and folklore collector, author of Grandfather Tales and Jack Tales, here tells three of his finest traditional stories, recorded in a two-room rural schoolhouse in the mountains of eastern Tennessee, with an audience of thoroughly delighted mountain children

    1. Jack and the Robbers - 22:09
    2. Jack and the King's Girl - 9:09
    3. Jack and the Three Sillies - 11:27

    Recorded in 1962 by Sandy Paton

The Jack Tales is worth finding and using as a source for your own story telling.

...and there is a photo of Richard Chase at the website Bruce Kallick made for my folk scene photographs. I took it at the Old Town School Of Folk Music in Chicago -- the mid-1960s.

Traditional storytelling has always been a close second to singing in my interests and we were lucky enough to catch a few of the last big storytellers here in Ireland.
I was always fascinated with the manner in which the stories travelled and adapted themselves to the different areas and nationalities.
When Vance Randolph published a collection of bawdy tales entitled 'Pissing in the Snow', I was amused to learn that a well-known Northern Ireland collector proposed to put together a similar one from his area and call it 'F***ing in the Frost'. He later released it under a more acceptable title.
One of the best storytellers we met was a man named Jack Flannery from Cloonfad, on the Galway/Roscommon/Mayo borders (he told us that at night, his neighbour would sit in Roscommon with his feet in Galway and his pipe resting on the hob in Mayo).
When we arrived at his home he asked us did we want the short or long stories - he was pleased when we told him "the long ones", and said that years ago he was visited by a man who only wanted the short ones. When we finally got round to recording the short ones, we found they were only three-quarters-of-an-hour long, while the others were all at least 2 hours.
Collector Tom Munnelly told us of one of his experiences collecting stories in North Clare, where he found an Irish language storyteller with epic-length tales.
When he arrived, the man was extremely nervous at being recorded and insisted on going to the pub for a little 'Dutch courage'.
An hour later they sat down in front of a roaring fire and began work.
Tom's Irish was not great, so his main pre-occupation was to keep an eye on the tapes and change them when necessary.
Eventually (three hours into the first story), the booze, the fire and the man's voice got the better of him and he began to doze. He was woken up by the storyteller saying, "No; I have that wrong; I'll start it again".
Tom beat a hasty retreat, and returned on a later occasion.
