Subject: RE: Origins: Child Ballads: US Versions Part 2
Hi,

I've moved on to Child 76; Lass of Roch Royal. The number of authentic tradtional US and Canadian versions seems small- at least the versions that tell the story of Lord (Love) Gregory and the Lass.

Jean Ritchie's version seems to be a rewrite of the supplimental version found in Child. Any information on that one?

Carey Woofter's versions seems to be a rewrite of Child D. Anyone know about that one? (Found in Combs)

The Cox version seems to be based on a print version.

What are the versions? Georgie Jeems; Fowke's; Niles B;

Richie
