Thread Name: Is there a Carter Family Songbook?
Subject: RE: Is there a Carter Family Songbook?
I have been told that copyright law prohibits the issuance of a Carter Family songbook-- that A.P. Carter sold the rights to every song they ever did to Ralph Peer, and Broadcast Music, Inc still owns them and won't let them go.
