lamarca Luddites & Mill Song (27) RE: Luddites & Mill Song 29 Nov 05


As mentioned in the link Migginz gave above, there are several good collections of songs from the Industrial Revolution that contain songs about Ned Ludd and general laments about the loss of jobs resulting from industrialization. Try looking for copies of

Victoria's Inferno: Songs of the Old Mills, Mines, Manufactories, Canals & Railways by Jon Raven, Publisher: Wolverhampton: Roadside, 1978

Poverty Knock: a Picture of Industrial Life in the Nineteenth Century Through Songs, Ballads and Contemporary Accounts by Roy Palmer, Publisher: Cambridge University Press, 1974

A Touch on the Times. Songs of Social Change 1770 to 1914 by Roy Palmer, Publisher: Penguin Education, 1974

I found several available through http://www.abebooks.com/
