Sandy Paton DTStudy: Darlin' Corey / Little Maggie (42) RE: DTStudy: Darlin' Corey / Little Maggie 03 Dec 02

I included two versions of "Little Maggie" on the second volume of my The Traditional Music of Beech Mountain, NC, field recordings collected back in the early 60s. One is done with fretless banjo by Tab Ward, a tobacco farmer who was in his 50s when I recorded him. By way of contrast, the other is a more ballad-styled, unaccompanied rendition (with a more complete text) sung by the truly great ballad singer of the region, Lee Monroe Presnell. Mr. Presnell was well into his 80s when I met and recorded him. These field recordings (both volumes) are now available as CDs (CD-22 and CD-23)and they come with the booklets of notes and texts that accompanied the original LPs. Our "in-house produced CDs" are still too new to be listed on our web site, but we offer them at the same price as our commercially produced CDs. If you'd like to know more about our "in-house" CDs, give us a call at 1-800-836-0901. We are making new masters in our spare time every day, trying to get our entire back catalog available on CD. Eighteen ready now, and over a hundred to go.

Sandy (still playing catch-up)
