Thread Name: how important is the label traditional singer?
Subject: RE: how important is the label traditional singer?
If anybody with any knowledge of traditional singers is still the slightest bit interested in this Alice in Wonderland thread, I have a somewhat off-topic question.
I am working on the notes of the 'Folksongs of Britain' set of recordings released in the early 1960s (Lomax, Kennedy, Bob Copper, Sean O'Boyle etc.) and have come across a reference to a proposed parallel series of American albums.
Does anybody know if they were ever made?
I have some Lib. of Cong. albums of field recordings: (Charles Seeger's Barbara Allen, Korson's Mining Songs, Bronson's Ballads, Botkin, Lomax, etc.) but nothing as comprehensive as the F.S.B. series.
Any info. would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Jim Carroll
