Thread Name: Origin: Coal Tattoo (Billy Edd Wheeler)
Subject: RE: Coal Tattoo
Billy Edd Wheeler recorded "Coal Tatoo" jon an album titled "A New Bag of Songs Written and Sung By Billy Edd Wheeler" (Kapp Records KL 1351). The album is interesting because it contains quite a few other songs that were recorded by other successful performers. "Reverend Mr. Black", "Desert Pete" & "Anne" all by Kingston Trio; "Winter Sky" by Judy Collins; "Blue Roses" by Hank Snow.

Another version of "Coal Tatoo" can be found on the Mitchell Trio "Alive" (Mercury Records) that version of the trio had Mike Kobluk, David Boise, & John Denver and was the last recording by the trio.
