Subject: RE: Child Ballads survived in oral trad.
my ears tell me something different from yours Jim.
furthermore I am not going to tolerate being fobbed off second rate versions of carolina moon , just because they have been collected from a person who had learned his songs[supposedly orally] , and who may have had other more interesting songs in his repertoire.
