GUEST,dick greenhaus Digital Child from CAMSCO (37) Digital Child from CAMSCO 26 Feb 04

Oops- hit the wrong button.


CAMSCO has just received an OK to sell the digital edition of Child's English and Scottish Popular Ballads on CD. This consists of two CDs: 1., a fully searchable and printable text with new essays, new maps and a gazetteer, MIDI files, and annotation, index and glossary hyperlinks; and 2., an audio CD (pop it in your stereo) containing new music tracks and interviews with outstanding contemporary interpreters, preservers, and collectors of the living song traditions. Full ballad performances from Jean Ritchie, Martin Carthy, Joan Baez, Louis Killen, Roberts & Barrand, Heather Wood, Anita Best, Archie Fisher, Heather Heywood, the Patons, and others. This edition, at this time, is a PC-only single-user edition. For details, check out It is IMHO a major step forward in folklore publications.

As has been the case in the past, I'm trying to find out how many folk are interested before I quote a price. The more volume, the lower the price to me and the greater the discount (from the publisher's price of $125 + shipping) I can provide. Please PM me, or call at 800/548-FOLK (3655) or E-mail me at

I wish I could just place a large order and hope for sales, but frankly there's no way I can lay out the cash.
