Hi,

I've finished (for now) US versions of Bonnie George (James) Campbell:

http://bluegrassmessengers.com/us--canada-versions-210-bonnie-james-campbell.aspx

If anyone has info about these three missing versions, please post:

I've yet to determine if Jean Ritchie's version (found in her book) and Evelyne Anderson Beers on the recording "Gentle Art" are tradtional.

Davis in More Ballads mentions a version from Boyd County, KY found in the records of Federal Writer's project but as far as I know this version has not surfaced.
