Subject: RE: New Book: Folk Song in England
The broadside presses were there to sell broadsides and make money what indications or records are there songs of social comment[ depending on what you mean by social comment] , sold more than songs about murder or coinfessions at the gallows. can you be more specific about what exactly you mean by social comment.
the term social comment these days refers generally to songs criticising the political establishment and the ruling class.
