Thread Name: Common poems set to music
Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
Alex Atterson set six Charles Causeley poems to music and recorded them as Side 1 of 'Pushing the Business On' (Plantlife Records, PLR005, 1977). They were, Johnny Alleluia, Three Masts, O Billy do you hear that bell, Nelson Gardens, Hawthorn White and Billy Medals.
Phil Ochs recorded 'The Highwayman' on 'I'ain't marching anymore' (Elektra EKL-7287,1968).
Here endeth my anorak moment for today.
