Thread Name: Help: St. James Infirmary - by Rolling Stones?
Subject: RE: St. James infirmary
Roberto! That version by Alex Campbell on "Way Out West" was the first time I ever heard the song. (I still think it's about the best version I've heard to date.) It was the very first LP record I ever bought ( @ WH SMITH) and what got me interested in folk music.

I used to think that if only I could play that song on the guitar, I'd be a happy man. How naive is that!

It also has a wonderful version of "Orange Blossom Special"
