The English and Scottish Popular Ballads Part 1: Child 1-26


Notes

This isn't quite the entire Child canon: there are quite a few ballads that have never to my knowledge been recorded. But it's the first part of a comprehensive multipart mix -- not my entire collection, which would violate 8tracks' TOS several times over, but one representative of every ballad I have. This one begins with #1 "Riddles Wisely Expounded" and goes through #26 "The Three Ravens."

this is such a fascinating and engaging collection! the only improvement I could suggest is annotating each song with which ballad it represents--I'm really new to traditional folk music and am only familiar with a few ballads offhand--but other than that this collection is my new favorite thing!

@ I did include a track listing with Child's numbers when I posted these mixes to tumblr! I thought about posting them here as well, but I wasn't sure there was a suitable place to do it -- they're a bit long for the descriptions. Perhaps I'll include links.
