1 - Songs and mouth music sung by Mary Morrison and others. It is unclear when these recordings were made. Due to their place in the tape range, we have assumed they were made shortly after Lomax's initial recordings of Mary and Neil Gillies in Barra, in late June. The women accompanying Ms. Morrison are unidentified. [Source: Editor]
