Subject: RE: Child Ballads: US Versions
TY Brian,

Clearly the individual ballads presented by Child should be found in 'English Versions and Other Versions' section as well.

After all, they are important Engish-Scottish versions.

I suspect Leadbelly also learned some songs from the Lomaxes. Barker has a great traditional sound. I have one of his recordings.
