Subject: RE: Bound To See My Mother 10000 Miles Away
Jeff - Thank you immensely for sharing your experiences and impressions re: the Reddens. As you are no doubt aware, they are featured prominently in the Helen Creighton film bio., A Sigh and a Wish; you've added to and enriched what is there, concerning Fred in particular. What an appealing character ...
I've always had a soft spot for The Banks of Claudy, as I (mis?)remember the title, despite its Victorian over-the-top melodrama. It's one of the ones I had in mind when I commented, on another thread, on field recordings of songs with accompaniment (piano). It can be found on one of the Folkways releases of Helen Creighton material.
