Thread Name: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Subject: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
I have the Ed McCurdy CD, Cowboy Songs, released in 1996. Of course this is a CD release of material recorded on vinyl much earlier - but when? It's not Elektra EKL 112 from 1957, which also consists of songs of the West (but not the same songs). It may be a re-release of Tradition TLP 2061, but I think that just begs the question, as the Tradition LPs were themsleves re-releases of older material (if I'm not mistaken) and anyway I can't find a year for the Tradition LP.

I suppose the answer is "sometime in the late 50s, early 60s," but if someone out there can pin it down to a specific year or two I'd be much obliged.

There have been several McCurdy threads here - I've looked through them and haven't found what I'm after (but I've been known to miss things).
