Subject: RE: Folklore: Bascomb Lamar Lunsford

I just finished reading Minstrel of the Appalachians", and I found it pretty interesting. Not the most stirring writing, but that's one of those things. I learned a great deal about his life and influence.

No, the "compilation" of his songs was far from complete. And to tell the truth, I didn't care for many of the selections included. That sentence needs clarification (though not stylistic improvement): "And to tell the truth, for many of the selections included, I didn't care."    There were a number of good songs. Not always the same version as I have BLL on Folkways LP singing.
