found it hard to believe that there shouldn't exist an (American made) decent Carl Sandberg discography - so I handcrafted me one of my own at http://www.wirz.de/music/sandburg.htm and I'm almost sure you Mudcatters have lots of additions to hand ;-)

Stefan:

Beautiful work, and a public service. You have reminded me how uch I revered the old sot, really -- he hit me right between the eyes, figuratively speaking, and I only hope his spirit stays alove and in use for a long time.

Lyrichord CD LYR 6003 "The Great Carl Sandburg" is, as far as I know, the only one currently in print (CD). You can, of course, buy it at CAMSCO Music 900/548-FOLK (3655)

Have an old copy of CARL SANDBURG SONGBOOK somewhere...one of my sons when small referred to it as, CARL SONGBAG BURGBOOK!

George and I visited him on his goat farm in Flat Rock (NC) shortly after we were married. And that's another story... Jean

Was American Songbag (1927) Sandburg's only collection of songs? I thought I read in the Forum about a second volume - but I sure can't find anything to verify that.
Oh, Jean, we would sure like to hear that story....

I believe it was the only one released but there are several good bio's of him, including "Old Troubadour" by Gregory d'Alessio, which chronicles his music partying in NYC from 1948 to 1967.

There was a 2nd AMERICAN SONGBAG, much thinner and a different format
published in the late '40's I believe. If I ever get my books out of storage, I will post the songs. I think W. Guthrie used to refer to the first one as CARL SONGBURG'S AMERICAN SANDBAG.

"Carl Sandburg's New American Songbag" was published and copyright by Broadcast Music, Inc., NY, 1950. There is a little note on the back of the title page, "Copyright 1927, by Harcourt, Brace and Company, Inc." This was the date of the main volume.
There are 59 lyrics, quite a few of them already posted to Mudcat, as well as a number posted in slightly different form.

I am not sure what possessed Oak Park (IL) High to invite Mr. Sandburg to address us proto-rockers, but he came to the assembly and got up on the stage with his guitar and talked and sang for an hour. Some knew about him - nobody could have guessed the "great folk scare" was coming - one of those in attendance, besides me, was Erik Jacobsen, who went on to produce the Loving Spoonful records. That was the same year that the Old Town School of Folk Music started in Oak Park.
Maybe Mr. Sandburg had wider influence in what we do know than he is usually given.
