Miscellaneous questions

scan270  47 l6

In a section of his notes entitled ‘Misc. points’, Baines notates the crow of a cockerel alongside the question: ‘Birds could pick it up from humans?’

Baines wonders on this page: ‘By what mechanisms are tunes shaped?’ with respect to the effects of myth and history, language and rulers.

Also in this folder are newspaper cuttings about blues, jazz, and rock and roll, as well as an article about children’s music lessons, reaching new audiences for live music in the age of the cassette tape, and the results of a Swedish listening survey.
