As far as recording just a single verse of a song, to get the tune...the 
person who did that often was Peter Kennedy, and one of the people in 
Lomax's organization (Matthew, was it you?) told me he did that because 
tape, at that time, was very expensive, and he was working on a very 
limited budget. That's why you'll hear the multi-artist compiled 
versions of ballads, each singing a single verse, on many of the "Folk 
Songs of Britain" albums.

Peace,
Paul
