Joe, run, don't walk, to your local CD store and get the Andy Irvine album, Way Out Yonder. Even if you don't like his recording of the McKennitt setting of The Highwayman (and I find it hard to imagine anyone not liking his recording), there is so much good stuff on that CD....
Dave, Ochs left a lot out to get it down to 5 minutes. McKennitt leaves out nothing (I think) and it weighs in at over 9 minutes (on the Irvine recording).
