Thread Name: Child Ballads: Anyone recorded the lot?
Subject: RE: Child Ballads: Anyone recorded the lot?
Wow - this just shows how useful it can be posting to an old thread (See the third entry!)

The sleeve notes on the 'Topic' records I referred to say that they were "formerly issued by Caedmon in the USA"

I agree with everyone else: a project to record as many of the ballads as possible would be a 'must have' for any serious folkie now - and it could be a major bequest to the future in the way 'Child' itself is to us (Social studies question - would this be 'A Good Thing' or too confining? Discuss)
