I sprung for the John Barbera collection of songs of the south. (Courtesy Sig. Baia and as noted on the MC homepage.) I've only worked through a few songs, but am happy that this music and tradition is being documented-a fun summer ahead. I've had access to a lot of recordings from the south and enjoy playing this music a lot. Getting back into frame drums is a likely corollary.
I am interested in others' responses, reactions, references to the collection......
