Thread Name: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
I'll keep this in mind next time the Oak Tree/Robin Hood thread raises its interesting (but somewhat argumentative) head.

I've been remodeling a house I bought a little over 2 1/2 years ago, and with every sweep of moved furniture, rearranged boxes, streamlined shelving, I get closer to being able to unpack the 13 or more boxes I have on shelving in the hall that contains my Dad's music collection. The LPs have been out for a while, and as I mentioned above, I have cassette recordings of some that I wasn't able to hold onto, but I photocopied all of the liner notes and my Dad's marginalia. He learned a lot of McCurdy's songs, along with Dyer-Bennett and Burl Ives when he was first starting out.
