Thread Name: Lyr Add: Going Up Camborne Hill
Subject: RE: LRY ADD Going Up Camborne Hill
I've added LYR ADD: "Put in All" with two ABC's for it, and the earliest copies I've found of "Admiral Benbow" and "Captain Kidd". Basically, we know nothing of the tune that might have been used for the 16th century "Gude and Godlie" ballad. There are several 17th century names that are alternates for the ame tune, but there is no solid connection of them with the earliest tune with their distinctice meter, "Put in all", and we don't have much 18th or 19th century evidence for the "Captain Kidd" tune.
