1 - The tape box indicates that this session was recorded on March 27, 1948. However, it is possible that it was actually recorded on March 27, 1949, as all other sessions in this collection were recorded in 1949. The session contains ballads, hymns, lyric songs, a lullaby, and a humorous song, performed by both Jean Ritchie and Alan Lomax.

0 - This song was collected in 1913 by Josiah H. Combs in Hindman, KY, as Hustling Gambler and by Cecil Sharp in 1918 in Burnsville, N. C., as Gamblin' Man (source: Southern Mountain Folksongs, compiled and edited by W. K. McNeil, 1988). Buell Kazee made the first commercial recording of it for Brunswick in 1927. Bill and Charles Monroe's version, recorded as a single in 1936, was included in John A. Lomax's Smoky Mountain Ballads album of 78s (Victor, c. 1942). The song was a favorite of the folk revival of the 1950s and 60s and was sung by Burl Ives, on his album The Wayfaring Stranger and by Pete Seeger and others. [Source: Southern Mountain Folksongs]
