Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

While talking with John Masciale a couple weeks ago, I tried to find a collection of Wm. Sidney Mount tunes that I know I have some place. I couldn't find it and I purchased this thinking it was the same or similar to what I remember having. It's not. It looks interesting with a lot of color paintings and text but it's not a collection of tunes. Does anyone know what it was that I'm remembering and do you know how to get a copy? I used to have a cassette of the tunes (which I also can't find) but have reordered the CD though I've yet to receive it.

Eureka! I found it! It's "Thirty Fiddle Tunes from the Manuscript Collection of William Sidney Mount", compiled and edited by Alan Buechner and Bill Shull for the Missouri State Old Time Fiddlers Association and the Museums at Stony Brook, New York. I don't recall where I got it. It's about 40 pages. I don't see any date but, now that I have the title, I found it on WorldCat with a 1995 pub date.
