I should think that was the record that Sofia was thinking of.  If I remember right, the "chorus" that Jacko mentioned was recorded by the Watersons; the best I've ever heard, though, was Shirley Collins' set of Joseph Taylor's version on No Roses (1971).  Howden is in Yorkshire, of course, and Frank Kidson published a Yorkshire version of the song in Traditional Tunes (1891), well before Taylor was recorded.
