Google has just introduced pdf full text versions and search of out of print books. I tested it out for phrases like 'folk songs' and 'music' and found it to be a treasure. Plenty of stuff from the 19th century. No doubt more will be added over time.

Try it! Select Google >> More >> Book Search

Marvellous. Just read the relevant section in The British Folk Revival 1944 to 2002which explains the rift between Karl Dallas and Eric Winter v The Kennedys which I'd not previously understood fully.

But guess what advertising comes up on each page? Yes, that sodding 'Free Seth Lakeperson' ever-so-annoying pop-up again.

Quack!

Oh gosh - even more stuff for me to get lost in on the internet! I have pulled up several entire books (for example "The Romany Rye") but ended up buying them anyway - it get's tedious reading over the internet. I hadn't thought of pulling up folk songs or ballads, though!

get "full version" PDFs, burn 'em to a CD or DVD ...label 'em just like a book on the shelf....or print 'em if you've a mind to.

(some books show you only the text you search for, and may be still under copyright)
