Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Dorset Is Beautiful (Bob Gale)
But where's the proof? All I know is that when the song first appeared (and I'm sure we're all talking about the same song)c1965 it was 'known' by everyone on the Dorset scene that Bob Gale had written it. He, and the group he was part of, would sing it at Dorchester and, as the Yetties say on their 1972 album, was the acknowledged author. I've nothing against Trevor Crozier, but this is the first time I've ever heard it suggested that he wrote it.
