Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Sorry Bill D, Ed passed away in March of 2000 so you may have seen an imposter or your dates are confused!

There WERE two separate albums - Song of the West that was issued by Tradition in had to come after 1956. Ed's first recording was made in 1954 with Ramblin Jack Elliot and Oscar Brand. If my information is correct, 1956 was the year that Dianne Hamilton and Paddy Clancy launched the label. In 1957 he recorded Songs of the Old West for Elektra. Different songs on both albums.
