Paul Campbell (2)
Quote, from The Weavers Song Book:
© 1960 by Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert, Fred Hellerman, and Erik Darling; Harper & Row, Publisher, Inc.
"In the highly complex realm of recording and publishing of 1950, The Weavers found little precedent for processing material produced through our accustomed modus operandi. In this book are pieces which are enlargements of fragments of otherwise forgotten songs. There are songs which are the result of combining elements of several songs. Sometimes our contribution is no more than a unique arrangement, an added verse or a line or two, or the simple restatement of the story or melody as we originally heard it. There are others which are totally the creation of one or another member of the group, edited and reworked by the others. To those songs which were published during the period between 1950 and 1953 we assigned the name 'Paul Campbell,' as representing both the combined efforts of the four people then known as The Weavers and the concept of musical work to which they were committed."
