Subject: RE: LyrHelpReq: Chemical Worker's Song
Dave ,
Re :- Vin . It was ICI Wilton - he was an apprentice Fitter and Turner there.
As soon as he was 21 - when your apprenticeship finished - he was straight out.
Ron Angel - the writer of this song - I couldn't speak more highly of a man -A Jack of all trades and Master of them ALL.
In spite of being a shit hole, I would argue that Teesside has produced more songwriters of note ( pardon the pun) in the British Folk music scene than any other area.
Incidentally for non-UK readers Teesside in the North East of England , birth place of many things 1st Railway , James Cook, all that sort of Stuff .Main towns Middlesbrough, Stockton,Guisborough if you're looking at a map.
