Subject: RE: Jean Ritchie Books & Recordings
Well hell....I might as well ask since I'm sure it's been brought up before and this thread is going that way anyhow...............

Jean, have you talked about a boxed set? I hate the term "best of" but that's the general idea. Maybe it would be broken down onto say 3 or 4 CD's with Part One as Jean and Trad, Part Two as Jean Sings the Mountains, Part Three as Jean and the Folk Revival, Part Four as Jean for the Holidays...........I dunno', just yakkin' off the top of my head here.........Obviously different names then I used, but some of your favorite trad songs you learned over the years, some Ritchie family favorites, some composed songs you've done..........Theree are a lot of ways to put it together.

There are very few true folk artists that could pull this off but you are certainly one!
