Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Messing About on the River (Josh MacRae)
..... Another early success was 'Messing About On The River', a turntable hit written and produced by him for Scottish folk singer Josh MacRae. Years later the song would be used in 'Wind In The Willows', the movie version of the book that had inspired Tony to write it. http://www.spectropop.com/TonyHatch/index.htm
I have a 45, PYE 7N.15319, Josh MacRae singing Messing about on the River, with the writer named as Mark Anthony which was an alias used by Tony Hatch.
