Thread Name: George Collins Is Innocent!
Subject: RE: George Collins Is Innocent!
- JHW - Enos White was from Axford near Basingstoke in Hampshire, and he was collected from by Bob Copper in the 1950's.
In the early 1900's - Dr. George Gardiner collected 5 versions of George Collins in and around The New Forest, Hampshire - none of which were totally complete.
Two of the versions were collected in Lyndhurst, from a singer and his Son in Law - and they had different tunes!!
I have recorded two versions of the song, one based on the Enos White version and one from George Blake.
