Worth noting is that Smithsonian Folkways has come out with "ballads", a reissue with new notes of the 1961 album, with new notes.


It happens that on a cold wet day I am working through her wonderful book "Singing Family of the Cumberlands" (never read it before, it is a true example of pure writing), and alternating chapters with a cut from the ballads. This is a fine way to spend a day in one's own "Corner".
