Subject: RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
Actually, yes, I need say one thing more:
Do not buy Joan Baez' version of the song. For reasons unfathom-able, she deleted the first half of the second verse, the second half of the third verse, and all of the fifth verse (except the coda). I own about 40 Baez cd's and can stand with anyone in my admiration of her, but if I've persuaded you to buy "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda," get one of the other versions I've told you about, not Joan's.
