Subject: RE: Book of lesser known trad. songs?
Sometimes, going back is BEST!

Dick and Beth BEST put a book together called SONG FEST back in 1948.---It was done for the Intercollegiate Outing Club Association. It's a grand old collection, and one you ought to search for. It preceded the Folksinger's Word Book and, most certainly, it was before "the book"----Rise Up Singing.

This was the first book of songs I EVER bought, and I still look through it fondly finding songs that are, still, in spite of being less than politically correct now, some of my very BEST friends!!!
