I expected Mick and Tim to be in there but great stuff and thanks to all of you. I did ask for currently available recordings, but if I am struggling with a reference for a song I will use OOP references so please keep 'em coming.

The 'unique' tag means, not only are there no other oral versions in Roud, it also means I haven't got any references either. But they may be on VT, MT albums we haven't indexed yet.

Yes I am familiar with the 2 different 'watercress' songs.

I've got 'long shot' next to 'Bright Phoebus' because I can't imagine anyone on the folk scene singing it as it's so obviously an art song product of the pleasure gardens. I'm more likely to get a recording by a classical singer.

I don't intend to include multiple references so where there are lots I will give precedence to source singer recordings and those closest to Hants/Dorset. Those recordings Tim has posted from the Hampshire recordings look definites so I will do an updated list of wants ASAP, probably on Sunday as I'm at the Newcastle TSF meeting all day tomorrow.

Once again many thanks.
