Thread Name: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain
Subject: RE: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain
The booklets for the three Rounder CDs "Songs of Seduction" and the two Child ballad volumes use the woodcut designs that were on the covers of the original Caedmon LPs (although not in full colour) rather than the designs used on the Topic reissues.

I assumed that all 10 would be reissued by Rounder in the Lomax series in an extended and/or revised form but after those first three issues it seems to have stopped.

In act the whole Lomax series seems to have been reigned back after a strong start. I think less than half of the CD reissues of the Columbia World Library series have appeared to date.
