kytrad: Well nobody in punching distance of me better say they don't like your singing!

Nerd: Sorry, I meant that Washington LPs nearly immediately followed Riverside. But I think someone will redo them as CDs soon.

re Remember Kittredge was his student and put him on something of a pedestal (rather like me and Kenny Goldstein I guess--sheepish grin!) (My own grin is that I got to study with (undergrad, not grad) with the great Mac Leach, the feller what taught Goldstein. Most of my thinking today is still colorred by his approach.)

What you say is true, I think, but Kittredge was no slouch of a scholar, himself. And he agreed that Child misplaced "Gaberlunzie Man" at 279 appen. instead of 280. He also (as I recall) admitted it was odd that "Lang A-growing" to mention another, was omitted.
