1 - Lomax's field notes for tape 1075, tracks 1-8: "Recording of the above tunes was made at the home of Mrs. Jean Eustache Stoute from 8 p.m. on May 2nd until early next morning. This group is well versed in bele, kalinda [sic] and Spanish songs (parang tunes). During this recording emphasis was laid on the bele songs and the baby minding tunes. Ramaize should be further interviewed and his songs fully documented. (He had a cold the night we recorded him)." [Source: Field log]
