Richardson, Ethel Park. AMERICAN MOUNTAIN SONGS. NY: Greenburg, 1955. 4to, 120 pp. Edited and arranged by Sigmund Spaeth. Ballads, songs, spirituals, and nonsense songs, but not the English ballads. Contains many familiar tunes. The introduction indicates that the songs were collected in the field, but there are no notes to individual songs. The scholarship might be suspect, but the author had a lot of public attention. The dust jacket shows the compiler dressed for her appearance on the television show "The Big Surprise." Very good in dust jacket.
