Thread Name: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
I have both the CD and an issue of the source LP, but cannot give a date. The title of the LP is 'Song of the West' - note that there is no 's'. The LP that I got here in Oz probably came via England because it is on the Astor label 'Gold Star Series' Astor GGS 908. The record centre sticker has 'A Tradition USA Recording' and the cover has a small 'Tradition/Everest' logo. Unfortunately, neither place has a date. The brief note by Lee Palmer on the back cover states that 'in 1952, in New York, he [McCurdy] started writing and performing in children's shows ...'   This indicates that the record was made post-1952 at least. The track listings on the LP and CD are identical.
