GUEST,Pete Peterson Lyr Add: Meeting in The Air (29) RE: Lyr Add: Meeting in The Air 24 Jan 04


Joe, as you probably know, the Bear Family set of the Carter Family has a wonderful book with lots of pictures and the words to all the Carter Family songs, in the order they recorded them, WITHOUT a cross-index. (Oh well). In the notes to the songs, they also give the true authors of the songs, where known. Contrary to what Southern Music, Inc, would have us believe, very few actually WERE "by A.P. Carter." But I digress. They don't have the tunes, you have to listen to the CDs and learn them yourself. I was told that Southern Music, Inc. has been unreasonable when people have suggested reprinting one of the Carter Family songbooks, all of which have been allowed to go out of print. Samizdat collections of words & music ARE available-- wouldn't be surprised if our own Camsco Music has something available. . . but I don't know.
