Rare and getting more so, this book is the ultimate resource for folk, bluegrass, and old time musicians. I had lost my edition years ago and never thought I would find another -- but here it is! Lomax, Avery, Seeger, et. al. have bequeathed unto us the very fountain from which flows the source of many familiar and historic tunes. Complete with origins and lore -- if you love, sing, or play Americana music of any kind -- this is a 'must have' reference to the original lyrics of hundreds of songs. A legacy text, a historian's treasure, a collectors guide, a musicians friend.
