Thread Name: Bill Staines and Paul McNeill
Subject: Bill Staines and Paul McNeill
On Bill Staines' first album "A Bag of Rainbows," there's a cover of a song called "Midway" by Paul McNeil. I assume this is a typo and is supposed to be Paul McNeill, who has been covered in other threads.

I'm wondering though if anyone has any information about the connection between the two. My impression was that Paul McNeill lived in London and played at the Troubadour a lot, but could he also have been part of the Cambridge, MA folk scene along with Staines? "Midway" doesn't appear on any of McNeill's other records. At least, not on the three solo albums that I know about.
