Thread Name: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
My thanks to all in this thread. Bill D, it's not "Songs of the Old West." That's Elektra EKL-112 from 1956 or 1957, a different set of songs. Brucie, it's not the McCurdy-Lomax album, there's no sign of Lomax on the album I'm talking about. Stewie is certainly right that it's "Song of the West," and that's Tradition TLP 2061. Too bad no one has posted a date for that album, and I've found nothing on the web. Ron, I didn't know Tradition went back that far, but of course you're right, and I retract my earlier suggestion that TLP 2061 was a re-issue of earlier material.

I hate it when albums don't give the (original) year of issue anywhere. But I guess I'd rather have albums with incomplete documentation than not have the albums at all!
