Thread Name: Why Is the Lady of Carlisle Speechless?
Subject: RE: Why Is the Lady of Carlisle Speechless?
I became enthralled with this song when I purchased the Ian & Sylvia version when it was released in the late 1960's. Then I listened to Pentangle's version & love it just as much (and I REALLY like Pentangle's Bluegrass/Rockabilly background.) I was fascinated by the elements already mentioned here 1. The Lady's Swooning. 2. A lion's den--where were they, in Ethiopia? Perhaps the special carriage she rode in was originally a chariot? Well, the point is, I thought that I was the only person obsessing about such esoteric things, then discovered this blog. This is the most intelligent set of responses I've seen on the Net. That's all I really wanted to say. THANKS!
