Subject: RE: Durham Gaol
Yes, Jez's song "Durham Jail" refers to Durham in the NE of England. It's on his CD "Backshift". Tommy Armstrong the Tyneside poet (1848-1919) also wrote a "Durham Jail" song; it's sung by Tom Gilfellon and Lou Killen and is on "Tommy Armstrong of Tyneside" Topic CD TSCE 484.
