Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
The VWML has had a set of the recordings and microfiche documents since the early seventies
Perhaps its another case of one lot of folk people not knowing what the others were doing.
The copy I am talking about was obtained then - as was the bits of it we have here
"more than likely originated in some pastoral theatre production and first hit the streets as a broadside"
You can prove this, of course - oh - I forgot - you can't prove any of your claims, can you?
"Now, if the rest of us are right"
I assume you are talking about you and Steve Roud - there has been no indication that anybody else here actually accepts your claims and researchers have been saying the opposite for over a century
Or we now arriving at the 'imaginary friends' stage of the discussion.
