Not always Pete.
Some time in the not-too-distant future I hope to see the Carpenter Collection published (which reputedly contains the largest collection of ballads ever collected in the field).
The story goes that when Carpenter lost interest in it, it was stored in his garage until Ken Goldstein found it and bought it.
