Thread Name: the Little Red Songbook--I.W.W.
Subject: RE: the LITTLE RED SONGBOOK--I.W.W.
Fellow Workers.... hey, this post caused a frantic search, which ended up in me not finding the songbook that I've had since the late 60's. I think I may have searched the wrong house, got a son who may have appropriated it... I do have a well worn copy of Joyce Kornbluh's tome, more Wob lit than I can describe.

One of the IWW's in the Detroit area has a number of recent editions that I scornfully refer to as the BIG red songbook. It won't fit in your shirtpocket. I think it was printed in Chicago, but not certain. It is about twice as long and a little wider than the songbooks that I have.

Have any of you seen that one?
