Subject: RE: Burns Songs Site
Linn Records has a set of 12 cds that have all of Burns songs peformed by various Scottish folk singers and groups, co-ordinated by Fred Freeman. The project was done fairly quickly so there are some flaws - also there is not an alphabetical index, you have to trawl through the small print on every sleeve to find the song you seek!!

Jean Redpath sings on the Serge Hovey series Songs of Robert Burns. Sadly Serge died before the project was completed - think there are 7 cds? Check Greentrax Serge was an orchestral arranger so folkies have to see past that! However he had carefully researched all the tunes, came to Edinburgh, met and had help from Hamish Henderson, sought all the correct tunes as Burns had originally intended - so it is an invaluable resource. There are i think two song/tune books with some of the collection?
