Subject: Finding recordings - Library of Congress
From: Joe Offer
Date: 11 Jan 19 - 02:08 PM

Can somebody please enlighten me? I'm looking for recordings of the murder ballad titled "Ellen Flannery" (the victim) or "Floyd Frazier" (the perp). Roud lists several sound recordings at the Library of Congress, but but I can't figure out how to access them.
I found the audio recordings search page at the Library of Congress: https://www.loc.gov/audio/
...but that's as far as I get. One recording I'm seeking for is #2782 B1 - collected by Herbert Halpert in 1939, a song titled "Ellen Flannery" sung by Mrs. Goldie Hamilton at Hamiltontown, Virginia. I found some of Halpert's recordings, but not this one.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks.

these recordings do not appear to be available online
iirc purchasing copies gets expensive and requires permission from
performer/estate ???

cheers, Thomas.

a checklist of recordings through 1940 was published, and is
now available online:
