Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Work Gang Songs
A great collection so far.
Never Turn Back was the first song I heard Long John Baldry sing - he must have been about 18. I asked him where it came from, and as a result bought the 'Murderer's Home' LP - the Lomax recordings. It has a good few worksongs.
I can't find it at the moment, but it must be around somewhere. I'll see if I can add anything from it.
