Thread Name: Ed McCurdy - Available Recordings
Subject: RE: BS: Ed McCurdy
There were two other recent CD releases - a 1950 childrens songs recording and there was a re-release of some of the Dalliance recordings on CD. The Dalliance re-release apparently wasn't authorized and it went under the title of English Bawdy Songs, which Ed would have hated since he was adament that his music was "erotic", not "bawdy". I saw both recordings in a catalog from one of these bargain bin CD companies, the type that has 75 different recordings of "Songs from the 40's" and "101 Strings Play Dylan", etc. I don't know if they are still available, but hopefully somebody will release these magnificent recordings soon.

I plan to archive the interview, and perhaps the tribute show, I did with Ed here on Mudcat in the Traditions section on the radio page. I will post a note when it is online.
