In 1962, Colin S. Wharton published his Leeds University degree thesis "Folk Songs from the North Riding." This thesis was the culmination of his collecting in the North Riding of Yorkshire. The finished work was 149 pages long and divided into five sections:

  • Songs of Love and Courtship
  • Songs of the Farm
  • Hunting Songs
  • Occasional Songs
  • Songs of Sorrow

This two-CD set has 67 songs from 22 different singers including the now relatively well-known Arthur Wood and Billy Pennock.
