Subject: RE: Bronson tunes - Child Ballads
I have noticed a worrying trend of late, certainly in my neck of the woods.

In former days our main library would periodically hold a 'sale' of books withdrawn from circulation. It was rather a hit and miss affair, but at least it provided an opportunity to 'rescue' books of musical value from destruction.

These days ALL withdrawn books are sent off immediately to be pulped. You'd have thought the library would have been grateful for the extra income generated by the sales.

I shudder to think how many musical gems have suffered that fate.
