Greetings, all. Our band is getting ready to cut a CD and I would like to 
know what info must be included in the list of tunes. I do plan to visit 
harryfox.com and pay the ASCAP dues for the tunes that aren't Public Domain.

Below is a list of the tunes to go on the CD and some basic info I've been 
able to track down. But do I need to include composer for every tune? Do I 
need to print "Public Domain" for those which are? Do I need to include the 
publisher? Am I correct to assume that every tune with a date before 1923 is 
Public Domain? Will I find that info at harryfox? Any other suggestions? Any 
accurate feedback appreciated.
