Thread Name: Lyr Req: You Were on My Mind (Sylvia Fricker)
Subject: RE:
A little more on the song and nothing new about We Five other than that my college roommate had 2 of their albums and I once had copies on reel to reel tape that has since disntegrated. Ah the old Wollensack.

I think my favorite version of You Were On My MInd was done by the Chad Mitchell Trio on their "Typical American Boys" album. Their version is like the original Ian & Sylvia version, rather than We Five's. The later recording by Ian & Sylvia bore much more resemblance to the We Five lyrics and phrasing than it did to the original on "Northern Journey". The album was called: Ian & Sylvia and The Great Speckled Bird - You Were On My Mind (Columbia KC 31337, 1972). The Sylvia Tyson CD is available in the USA as "Sylvia Tyson - You Were On My Mind", I don't have the number here because the CD is in my office and I'm not (unlike some other federal employees that frequent and who shall remain nameless [starts with the 6th note on the scale] I don't log on from work ). That CD also contains both English and French versions of "Pepere's Mill" which was also on Quartette's first recording.
