Ed McCurdy with Peter Weldon

25 Nov 15 - 04:14 PM (#3753552)
Subject: Ed McCurdy with Peter Weldon
From: Thomas Stern

There are 2 McCurdy LPs issued by FOLK-ART (Mount Vernon Music) in 1964, which credit McCurdy vocals and guitar, Weldon on banjo. Peter Weldon remembers a session done in Canada in the late 50's with Ed, but is unaware it was released.
There is a Canadian LP on the CAPRI label (circa 1956) which credits
only Ed McCurdy. However, ALL the songs on that LP are also among
the songs on the 2 FOLK-ART discs. I have not been able to listen
to the CAPRI album. If anyone has it, please let me know if any
of the selections have banjo accompaniment. THANKS!
Below I've listed the known details of the 3 albums.
Does anyone know of any other album which has the selections on
the FOLK-ART releases which were NOT on the CAPRI album ???
Best wishes, Thomas.
