The Long Harvest

THE LONG HARVEST -10 CD set plus 1 CD of notes


longharvest300.jpgTraditional English and Scottish Ballads with older and newer versions and forms based on legendary volumes compiled by Francis J. Child

Note: The CD-sets come with copies of the inserts that accompanied the original vinyl LPs. This documentation is in pdf, a form that most, if not all, current-day computers can display, and when printed, the result looks very close to the original inserts.

PDF files cannot be searched for occurrences of texts. The individual ballad texts cannot be singled out to be displayed on a computer. At, a website has been put up that makes the texts of these ballads more accessible. The texts of the ballads from both sets of disks, as well as the descriptions of the ballads can all be found there.
