Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Widdecombe Fair (Show of Hands)
Actually, the first recorded mention of Widecombe Fair was in the Plymouth Gazette in 1850, according to Wikepedia, which is well into the Victorian era. Steve Knightley became aware that he has mispelled the song title after recording but before release. He wanted to correct it but the CD covers had already been printed and he decided the cost would be too great.
