Subject: RE: Origins: Katy Cruel History/Info???
The first time I heard the song "Katy Cruel" was at the University of Toronto production of a folk opera of the same name. It was 1960, I believe. It was written by David Helwig and Michael Rasminsky. I have no idea what their sources were.

The title track was sung by the female lead. You can hear another song from "Katy Cruel" called "The Black Sailor" at
