Subject: Songbook Indexing; Oak Publications
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Aug 07 - 10:34 PM

Some of my favorite songbooks were published (mostly in the 1960s) by Oak Publications. I'm not sure of the history of Oak Publications. Their songbooks all seem to have a similar format, and that format is also used in songbooks from People's Songs and from Sing Out! Magazine. If you can post information about the history of Oak Publications, I'll incorporate it into the second message in this thread.

I think this (click) is a pretty good index of Oak Publications still in print

(although it does not include Oak books that have been republished by other companies)

      This is an edited PermaThread® for indexes of songbooks published by Oak Publications. This thread will be edited by Joe Offer. Feel free to post to this thread, but remember that all messages posted here are subject to editing or deletion.

Use [CTRL-F] to find the you want, and then post a request for the song at the bottom of the thread. We'll contact the songbook owner and obtain the lyrics, and we'll post an answer or a link in your request message.
The assumption is that people who post indexes have the books or have access to them - and they're willing to post any of the songs listed.

Subject: Index: 101 plus 5 Songs for Camp (Oak)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Aug 07 - 10:38 PM

I got my start singing at campfires, so I've always loved camp songs. Years ago, I heard of an Oak Publications book called 101 Plus Five Songs for Camp [compiled and edited with notes by Mike Cohen on the use of folk songs in a camp music program, 1966]. From that day on, I coveted that book. I dated a woman in the mid-1990s, and I found out she had a copy of THAT book. It almost kept the relationship alive long after it should have died. Later, I was able to find my own copy, so I have no regrets about ending that relationship. Now that I look at the book, I see that most of the songs are far too sophisticated for the style of campfire singing that works for me - but they're good songs. Still, how can you think of camp songs without "The Hole In the Bottom of the Sea" and "The Deacon Went Down"?
-Joe-

I first started dabbling in guitar tunings using Stefan Grossman's Guitar tuning book, first published by Oak. He also had a country blues guide out by Oak. Broadside magazine did some "best of" publications, which I think also came out on Oak.

Subject: Index: Songs for Swinging Housemothers (Oak)
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Aug 07 - 11:21 PM

This one may be my favorite: Songs for Swinging Housemothers (Frank Lynn - revised edition, 1961 & 1963). I think this one was first published by another firm. By the way, the price on my copy is $2.95. I had an earlier (Pre-Oak) edition, but I gave it to my sister last week.

Subject: RE: Songbook Indexing: Oak Publications
From: Susan of DT
Date: 08 Aug 07 - 07:19 PM

I found the index I was looking for. I have two skinny books, one called "Oak Catalog" and one called "Oak Publications". Oak Publications lists 99 books, without years, and has a list of song titles and which Oak publications the song can be found in, referencing the publication by number. The Oak Catalog lists 116 publications, also numbered, but no song index. The end of that is "New Books for Spring 1971". Problem: the numbers on the books do not match from one catalog to the other.

So, what is the best way to handle this? If I scan the 24 pages, where/how would I post them?

And, of course, this is 35+ years old.

Music Sales Corp acquired Oak before that 1971 date. I don't know whether Oak is still producing books [I suspect not] or when they stopped, if they stopped.

Regarding the history of Oak Publications I'm having difficulty sorting out the relationships of a company called People's Artists Inc. which published The People's Song Book, Lift Every Voice (The Second People's Song Book) and the Songs of Joe Hill probably others) in the 1950's and to Sing Out! and to Folkways Records. The earliest Oak publication I have found is about 1961. Some names appear on the editorial staff of all of these - Moses Asch, Irwin Silber, Jerry Silverman, Pete Seeger. Does anyone know the history ? of these.

According to Peter Goldsmith's book about Moe Asch and Folkways Records, "Making People's Music," here is the sequence of events relative to Oak Publications, Sing Out! and Folkways Records:

After Peoples' Artists (which owned Sing Out!) disbanded on 1957, Irwin Silber convinced Moe Asch of Folkways to purchase a 45% interest in Sing Out!, with Silber owning 45% and Pete Seeger holding the remaining 10%. Oak was started in 1960 as a publishing channel for the series of "Reprints From Sing Out!" books, but it quickly expanded its list to include instrumental instruction books, collections of folk and folk-related songs, and Guy Carawan's important collection of songs from the Civil Rights movement (aka "Freedom Songs"). Through the early 1960s, the profits from Oak were enough to sustain the magazine.

In 1967, Asch and Silber dissolved their partnership and sold Oak Publications to Music Sales, Inc. Shortly after that, the editorial board of Sing Out! bought the magazine, which no longer had the revenue from Oak to support it. As a result, Sing Out! went through some difficult times in the late 1960s.

I couldn't see it listed above (though I think it's been mentioned on Mudcat before), but the index for Sing Out! is available online at Song Index for Sing Out!. (This is a direct link to the page, but it can be accessed indirectly in the frames from the Sing Out site; follow link to the Sing Out Resource Centre, then from there to the index).

I've got some Oak books. The ones to hand appear to be:

Old-Time String Band Songbook (not listed above, but with dates 1964, 1976)

Masters of the Instrumental Blues Guitar (1967)

and two more recent ones:

The Gow Collection of Scottish Dance Music (1986)
Western Swing Fiddle (1994)

I think I've got some more, but would probably have to hunt around for them (not on shelves!)

I'll try and put up the contents for the two early ones tomorrow.

I found a first edition of this book for sale online for $650 (and didn't buy it). I paid $20 for my second edition, and I couldn't pass up a paperback I found later for $8.99. Maybe they'll pay for my grandchildren's education....

This page (click) has some interesting information on the book:
    Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and John and Alan Lomax, made a huge impact on folk music in America, one which is still felt today. It is likely that their joint efforts with each other and many others fostered that sense of community which is still present in modern folk music circles. Seeger, Guthrie, and Alan Lomax collaborated on a number of projects, including a book of protest songs that Alan had been collecting. His father, John, had considered them "too protesty" for his own publications. In 1940, Alan passed the songs on to Seeger and Guthrie who compiled them and wrote introductions and copy for the book, "Hard Hitting Songs for Hard Hit People." Unfortunately, the songs were considered so radical that they were unable to find a publisher. The book eventually was published in 1967.
The book was reissued by the University of Nebraska Press on November 1, 1999. As far as I can tell, it is no longer in print - but copies are available for consideraby less than $650.

VARIOUS TRADES

The printers trade
I'm champion at keepin' 'em rolling
Needle and thread
The firefighter's song


CONTEMPORARY BROADSIDES

Jamie Foyers
The ballad of Springhill
Go down, you murderers
The ballad of Jimmy Wilson
The lifeboat Mona
Hey ho! Cook and Rowe!
The crooked cross
The young birds



THE IRON ROAD

Song of the iron road
Fireman's calypso
Ballad of leisure time
The fireman's not for me


ROAD BUILDERS

The exile song
Hot asphalt
The driver's song
Come, me little son
The fitter's song


THE BOLD FISHERMEN

North sea holes
Shoals of herring
Net - hauling song
Song of the fish-gutters
Fisherman's wife


COALMINERS

The plodder seam
The big hewer
Schoolday's end
Miner's wife
The gallant colliers


LOVERS

The first time ever I saw your face
The letter
My love and I are one


SONGS FOR SURVIVAL

Five fingers
The Trafford Road ballad
The dove
There's better things
That bomb has got to go
Brother, won't you join in the line?
Come live with me
March with us today
When I was young
Lullabye for the times


JUST SONGS

The space girl's song
The ballad of the carpenter
I'm a rambler
The lag's song
Northern city
No agents need apply
Come, fill up your glasses
