Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Death of Poor Bill Brown
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Death of Poor Bill Brown
This song if I am not mistaken also appears in Bert LLoyds Folk Songs of England ~which pre dates Ian Russell's collected version
Whilst Arthur had the 'Right fol do rol' chorus, I among others have a chorus 'I'll sing the Death of Bill Brown'after each verse
Perhaps Malcolm, you might be able to help me access some more of Arthurs recordings and also those of Frank Hinchliffe?
I have Arthur's record and sing one or two from it, (I upset Will and John by singing Rolling on the grass before John learnt it)I knew Arthur and know that he recorded his songs on a big tape recorder
I have done a lot of work on one two of Franks songs not heard such as 'The Old Wooden Rocker' and 'Forging of Scales' any suggestions
