Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy, Cowboy Songs - year?
Has anyone found any information about the date and source of McCurdy's SONG OF THE WEST / COWBOY SONGS album ??

I've put together the grid (below) showing the various releases
known to me. Only the Tradition Everest LP and Tradition Rykodisc
CD have all the songs.

Note: this is NOT Elektra EKL-112 SONGS OF THE OLD WEST.

Thanks!
Best wishes, Thomas.
