Joe Offer ADD: I Don't Want Your Red, Red Roses (Rosselson) (3) RE: Lyr Add: I Don't Want Your Red, Red Roses 08 Aug 21


I got a little confused by the way the message was introduced. I didn't THINK it was posted by Leon Rosselson, but I didn't know. I added the title and songwriter information to the post above, and the one alternate line from the songbook.

"I Don't Want Your Red, Red Roses" was written by Leon Rosselson. It appeared on Frankie Armstrong's 1984 Flying Fish album, I Heard a Woman Singing.

Here's the Frankie Armstrong recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7_5kLSDOZ4

Here's the Leon Rosselson recording, from his Turning Silence Into Song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQEJ4Yx-xUs - but the singer on this cut is Frankie Armstrong. Did Frankie Armstrong do the cut on the Rosselson album, or is this a mistake?

And finally, here's a Nancy Kerr performance of the song, from her "Leon Rosselson Song a Day" project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkSnq0gAtlo


Did Rosselson not record the song?
