Thread Name: Child Ballad CD Rom?
Subject: RE: Child Ballad CD Rom?
Well I've been using my copy for some time now and I thought it was worth refreshing this thread. Sorry if there's another more recent thread about it. Couldn't find one.
After some initial problems, caused by Adobe rather than the product itself, I've found it very easy to use and very helpful. It is probably not of much interest to someone who just wants singable words, but I've had a lifelong interest in the background of the songs I sing. I have had the books for about 30 years and know my way around the collection already, but I am enjoying this product as an additional reference tool. The audio CD that accompanies the CD rom is well done and enjoyable. It doesn't contain anything I haven't got elsewhere, but it's a welcome extra.
For me this product was well worth the money.
Nothing will ever replace Mudcat as a well of knowledge, of course. Just had to put that in. Cheers Joy
