Revival Reprints

Last year, thanks to the efforts of Herron Publishing, the 'Oxford Book of Sea Songs' by Roy Palmer was re-published as 'Boxing the Compass'.
Over the years many wonderful books relating to the folk revival have, sadly, gone out of print...can anyone out there think of any long-lost treasures (folk relared) they would love to see re-printed?

All the best.........Harry.

Harry, I searched Amazon and couldn't find Boxing the Compass. Can you tell us where to get it? I got a near-new copy of Oxford Book of Sea Songs through www.bookfinder.com, and I'll agree that it's a classic.

I'd like to see reasonably-priced reprints of Randolph's four-volume Ozark Folksongs, and the Frank C. Brown Collection of North Carolina Folklore.

I'm sure verybody wants to see Child and Bronson reprinted - the first volume of Child is now available form Loomis House.
