Subject: 'Classic English folk songs' help needed
From: GUEST,redmax

If anyone reading this has the 2003 updated edition of the Penguin book I'd appreciate a little help. In Rod Stradling's Mustrad review he quoted a couple of Malcolm Douglas's comments on A. L. Lloyd, and I'd like to quote these in a paper I'm writing. The quotes are:

'some texts have been extensively re-written without comment'

'there have been times when I have roundly cursed Lloyd for his creativity'

In order to credit Malcolm properly I need to be able to cite the page numbers for these comments, but I don't have access to a copy. Could someone have a quick look in the introduction and let me know which page(s) these appear on? I also need to quote the span of pages Malcolm's introduction covers.

An unusual request, I know, but I'm hoping someone will be able to help.

Thanks

One of the advantages of being a Mudcat member (no cost involved) is that you could have sent Malcolm a PM (personal message) as he is a regular Mudcat contributor.

I felt at the time that Rod hadn't quite understood what I wrote, and why I wrote it. Obviously if you are going to refer to the book, even in passing, I really would recommend that you get hold of a copy so that you can place those remarks in proper context. The second printing is almost sold out, but there will be a third quite soon; I'm trying to cram some more information into the 'singers' section at the moment.

Do feel free to contact me if that would be helpful. I'd also be interested to know what exactly you are covering in this paper, of course.

Malcolm, will the extra information on the singers be available somewhere for those who already have the book?
Thanks
Richard

Yes. There is a set of webpages at

http://www.folk-network.com/miscellany/penguin/

which already contains some additions, corrections and supplementary material. Everything added to the third printing will be placed there, too.
