Hagman Lyr Req: Fair Maids of February (20) RE: Lyr Req: Fair Maids of February 17 Jan 20


LP was re-issued by Hux Records in 2008 as a 2-cd set with a live concert. Still listed as being available http://www.huxrecords.com/cdsales97.htm

From the liner notes:

"FAIR MAIDS OF FEBRUARY is an old country expression
for snowdrops. The particular snowdrops in question tried
valiantly to bring themselves into the world in a difficult
environment outside my North London flat, but only the leaves
managed it. A similar thing happens with some North London
humans. The idea for this song came from listening to Tom
Forrest on “The Archers”, who impressed me greatly with the
aptness of this rural nickname for such charismatic flowers.
Little brother Bazza helped with the lyrics."
