General:
REEL C 35; CDR copy--Field recordings collected by Percy Grainger in England, 1909; Sidney Cowell Recordings 1936-7. FW-ASCH-7RR-0812 through FW-ASCH-7RR-0816 were among a large number of tapes (at least 35) provided to Moe by Sidney Robertson Cowell, who produced several Folkways albums and whose correspondence with Moe and Folkways fills three folders in the Archives Correspondence Files. She recorded many traditional folksingers in the 1930's and most of the songs on these tapes are dubs of 78's in our Archives and/or in the Archive of Folk Culture in the Library of Congress. Despite having reviewed her correspondence in the Archives Correspondence Files, I couldn't locate anything regarding the "why and wherefore" of the many such tapes she sent to Moe. Regarding the current five tapes, the first four contain recordings made in 1936 through1939 by Ms. Cowell, primarily in the southeastern U.S.; some were made by her in Missouri, Arkansas,Wisconsin, Illinois and California. Four songs on -0815 were originally recorded in 1909 in England, by Percy Grainger. The fifth tape was originally recorded by Maud Karpeles in Appalachia in 1950. FW-ASCH-7RR-0815 includes traditional ballads sung by: Joseph Taylor (Lincolnshire, England), recorded in 1909 by Percy Grainger); Warde Ford (Crandon, WI); David McIntosh (Carbondale, IL); and Virginia Meade (Hollywood, CA, orginally from TX). All sing traditional ballads.
