Thread Name: Lyr Req: Geordie (from Sam Russell)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam Russell's Geordie
I listened to a sound sample of the recording you mention at Barnes & Noble. Indeed, as far as sound quality is concerned, it is an appallingly bad recording. Since I don't own the CD myself, I'm afraid I can't help much. Your best bet might be to look up all the versions of GEORDIE that have been posted at Mudcat, or in the DT, and compare each one to the recording you have. Maybe you will find some bits that correspond more closely to what Russell sings than the Martin Simpson version does.
You could start here and follow the links to other versions.
