Thread Name: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
I had a big mishmash of text that I cut and pasted from--thanks for catching that missed one. Funny, since that was the one I was originally looking for. (Kind of like when I go to the grocery store and get everything except the item I wanted?) I missed mentioning a couple of my McCurdy albums also, such as his Children's Songs and Spoken Arts Intro to American Folk songs (it's on my list, but not handy to pull out to look at).

I tried all sorts of searches for a Tradition discography, but the word is too commonplace, to start with, and even with the modifiers in an advanced search, nothing came forward. The University of Oregon has a large collection, and it might be worth a call to one of their savvy librarians to just ask the question. I wasn't able to locate any finding aids for a particular Company, only for specific Performers. And there didn't appear to be a McCurdy finding aid. There was a hit that there is some information available in the subscription databases that they make available (after logon) to students and faculty. I'll have to see if we have those databases at the university where I work. We have a music program and they might have requested and/or funded these databases.

I have a funny little album around here somewhere, I haven't looked at in ages, with the named group on side A, and isn't McCurdy on side B? Does that ring a bell with anyone?
