I'll see if I can find out anything. I'm not even positive that it was from Ed Mc Curdy that I learned that particular song. I knew that I had an old LP record of Ed McCurdy, but I just checked it, and A Horse Named Bill is not on that record. I think it's the only record of Ed's that I ever had. Some of the songs on it are ones I learned [Squid Jiggin' Ground, Lavender Cowboy, and Ballad of the Frank Slide to mention a few] and particularly enjoyed -- but no Horse Named Bill. I'll look some more places.
