Subject: RE: Origins: Stowing Sugar in the Hold
That last post was unclear.
I re-wrote it, but over-wrote a part.
I was referring to having tracked down the history of variants before:
Years ago I asked Ken and or Ali where they got there version and ** what I remember was ** "an old Folkways record". At the time I scoured through the catalog and found only one recording of it, by Morrigan. This led me to contact W.Pint to ask where they got it. 30 years and a band or two in between did not lend itself to him remembering.
My recent search of Smithsonian Folkways has come up with less than that. I haven't even found the track I did before, so Morrigan might not be right."
I do appreciate any help though.
