I wish to hear Child ballads without spending all my money on CD's which may have only 1 or 2 on them! Does anyone know the best way to go about hearing them? My local library didn't know what I was talking about!

Randy, It sounds like the Child ballads are new to you. You should know that Child collected these songs not as "correct" specimens,but as examples of a living oral tradition. Many variants exist and they are all valid, if you hear a song referred to by a Child number, it's only an arbitrary identification. Most good folk song collections contain Child ballads. But to the core of your question, if you yourself don't sing, find someone to sing them for you! Many printed collections are available, and anyone who can carry a tune and likes to sing can let you hear these songs the way they were meant to be heard. Good luck. Cathub.

and there are a number of collections on record of just Child Balladss...I'm not sure which ones may currently be in print, but there ARE sources....where do you live? Someone near you may have some ideas? And do you want the 'old' classic versions, or just any processed version which can be traced to a Child source??
