Subject: RE: Topic Records Folk Songs Of Britain
When Rounder announced its series of Lomax recordings, the intention was to issue the FSB series with complete versions.
When this didn't happen, rumour was that they intended to do both edited and unedited versions.
Years ago Topic made moves to issue the set with unedited versions, but I heard that the fee being demanded by Peter Kennedy was so prohibitive that they abandoned the idea and concentrated on The Voice of The People series instead.
