Irish Street Ballads
Publisher: The Three Candles Limited, 1967 Dublin, Ireland.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Fair to Good. Hardcover 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall "A choice collection, made by Colm O Lochlainn, of 102 songs -a all well worth singing. Many of them are of respectable antiquity - 200 years or so - and many more were made in fairly recent times, e.g. 'The Foot and Mouth Disease, ' 'Bachelor's Walk, ' 'The Ragman's Ball.' Grave and gay, old and new, rich and rare, free and easy, this book holds many songs which will be loved the world over. Every song has its tune, many of them now first published, and nearly all of them are adorned with woodcuts taken from old Dublin boradsheet ballads. There are also a few notes appended for the guidance of those who delight in delving for further fragments of forgotten lore. A delightful companion for the traveller or week-ender, camper or caravanner, tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, rich man, poor man - in fact, for the world and Garret Reilly." "Adorned with woodcuts from the original broadsheets." xvi + 235 pages with index. Book is in VERY GOOD condition; previous owner's bookplate on front endpaper. Dust jacket is in FAIR to GOOD condition; a bit more wear than we like to see.

Small, Christopher  
Music of the Common Tongue: Survival and Celebration in African American Music
Publisher: Wesleyan University Press / University Press of New England, Hanover, New Hampshire, 1998.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. 1. Soft Cover. ISBN: 0819563579 Publisher's glossy wraps. 8vo. xi, 495 pp. Some underlining and marginal notes, else as new. VERY GOOD. In clear and elegant prose, Music of the Common Tongue, first published in 1987, argues that by any reasonable reckoning of the function of music in human life the African American tradition, that which stems from the collision between African and European ways of doing music which occurred in the Americas and the Caribbean during and after slavery, is the major western music of the twentieth century. In showing why this is so, the author presents not only an account of African American music from its origins but also a more general consideration of the nature of the music act and of its function in human life. The two streams of discussion occupy alternate chapters so that each casts light on the other. The author offers also an answer to what the Musical Times called the "seldom posed though glaringly obtrusive" question: "why is it that the music of an alienated, oppressed, often persecuted black minority should have made so powerful an impact on the entire industrialized world, whatever the color of its skin or economic status?". 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
