GUEST,Bob Coltman Origins: Love is Pleasin' (Eddie Delahunt) (19) RE: Origins: Love is Pleasin' 02 Aug 15

Jean Ritchie introduced "O Love Is Pleasin'" (learned from "an Irish girl in New York") to the USA as Side 1 Band 1 of her first Elektra (10") LP album in 1952—the opening song of her recording career.

1952 was the first time I heard the song, thanks to that record.

But I don't know whether Jean's version predated Isla Cameron's UK rendition or not.
