Subject: RE: Bound To See My Mother 10000 Miles Away
I've had the pleasure of accompanying Jeff Davis on this song several times during his UK tour over the last couple of weeks - the combination of mandocello, anglo concertina and Jeff's voice is extremely sweet! I'll see if I can get Jeff to post a comment here about how the song came into Fred Redden's repertoire.
The Sally Sloane "Claudy Banks" is - as Bob points out - a different song, and very close to what the Copper Family have in their repertoire.
The Fred Redden song isn't on my copy of Jeff Warner's CD, Bat Goddess (I didn't know he sang it), and neither is it on Jeff Davis's recent release "Some Fabulous Yonder". I will certainly be urging JD to record it next time he's in a studio.
