Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bright Morning Stars
YT originally recorded Bright Morning Star on The Folk Trailer (1970). Although just about every other released recording has appeared on a double CD re-release from Castle Communications (ESM CD 409), this did not. It eventually resurfaced on the Free Reed Peter Bellamy tribute Wake the Vaulted Echoes (FRTCD 14). In the notes. Heather Wood says they learned it while on tour in Washington DC. Martin Carthy clears up the confusion over the title: "BMS is not called BMSs. Absolutely NOT. It is called Bright Morning Star. English folkies have pluralised it".
