Glad to have my understanding of Bert's use of the tune confirmed Burl.

Was that info given at one of Bert's talks at the National, as I understand it was?

Also, following up on Malcolm's reply to my earlier posting, I hadn't made the "Sweet Thames/Recruited Collier" tune connection but can hear it now you've mentioned it (so many tune connections it's not always easy to spot them all!). I've got the vinyl of The Critic's Group LP of Sweet Thames flow softly so, if I can dig it out easily, I'll check the boolet notes and see if there's a mention.
