Remember it, Burl ? Vaughn would never let me forget it! Good to hear from you.

Dave, it is a long time since I've read any of Cap'n Pearl, but his songs and tales are perhaps better called "memory art" than "folklore" (although those categories intertwine a lot). Perfectly valid category. One that folkies often make use of (and create). I don't think it was as common a term when Schroeder wrote her essay as it is now.

He might have *enjoyed* being infamous. I'm sure he was that to Lomax, and others whose attention he sought.

My own favorite Nye song is "Last Trip in the Fall", FWIW.
