Subject: RE: DTStudy: Mango Walk
I saw this and recognised the title. this is in "Singing Together" Spring 1970 (Which might well account for its popularity with steel bands "for the last 35 years".
The words in "Singing Together" are identical to those posted above.
The music is almost identical. The differences being the addition of guitar chords, the addition of an simple melodic accompaniment line (with intro) giving the Calypso beat for each line (dotted crotchet, dotted crotchet, crotchet). Also the final bar gives both notes as crotchets, with a crotchet rest and then the first note of the next verse.
Neither the contents page, nor the copyright notices (back cover) give any origin details for the song.
Scans of relevant pages sent to Joe as attachments.
