Hi, Bob

Did you ever find the Aussie vesion of "Body in the Bag"?
Paul Guppy of Lancaster sang this at a session in the Fleece, Dolphinholme last night, and I couldn't quite place whether it was original Music Hall material or something more modern. I've heard it before, sung by Kevin McGrath (links in the thread above are dead, but he sometimes has a working website). The Digitrad version indicates "sung by Jean Redpath", and a Google on Charles O'Hegarty shows that the two were booked at a venue "Jabberwok" within days of each other in 1965. Co-incidence?
