Thread Name: John Barleycorn 'Two Brothers' version
Subject: RE: John Barleycorn 'Two Brothers' version
So I found someone selling "HindSight" and have now been able to check out their JB. More or less the words I know, but a different tune. Their tune is one I heard on a field recording that Jean Ritchie made in the 50's (I believe) -- except that unlike the field recording, CB&S don't pound the table in outrage at the treatment afforded Mr Barleycorn even tho "he done no one no harm!"
I'll get the melody into ABC and post it here as soon as I figure out how.....
