Thread Name: Songbooks: Book of lesser known trad. songs?
Subject: RE: Book of lesser known trad. songs?
Frank Purslow's three other books from the Hammond and Gardiner mss. (Constant Lovers, Wanton Seed and The Foggy Dew) have always struck me as being underused - if you can get your hands on them.
If you are prepared to Anglicise Scots songs the Greig-Duncan collection is a relatively untouched gold mine.
