Thread Name: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain
Subject: RE: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain
Masato is only partly correct about the above - Child 1 & 2 as indicated do share tracks with the original Lps (at least the Topic versions) - but there are some subtractions and some additions.
This is also true of Songs of Seduction that has been issued on CD in the same series, however in this case, there are major differences between the Lp and the Cd.
It seems that they are issung a different set than the old Lp - so to be complete - you need both. Very clever marketing!
I have not checked the Topic site to see if the whole group have been re-issued in this format.
