Subject: RE: Child Ballads: Anyone recorded the lot?
I think it was GN who mentioned the wonderful set of LPs by A.L. Lloyd and Ewan McColl. Seven hours of wonderful renditions. I had a set of them in my possession back in the middle 50s for a short time, borrowed from an acquaintance who wanted them back so strongly that I had to give my ENTIRE record collection as hostage!

I'd give a pretty penny--I'm sure I'd HAVE TO give a pretty penny for set of them today, but they're not in print. I think the label was Riverside, now out of business, and the masters and rights belong to Topics, in England, but last I heard they have no intention of publishing them as a set. DURN!
