Subject: RE: DTStudy: Step It Out Nancy
Hi, Mrr - Wikipedia says the High Kings were formed in 2008 - the High Kings were one of many groups that recorded "Step It Out Mary." We don't have a date in the other thread (click) for the publication date of "Step It Out Mary," but we do know that songwriter Sean McCarthy included it in a songbook in 1983.
Sing Out! Magazine dates "Step It Out Nancy" at 1979, but Jerome says above in this thread that the other song came first.
Thanks for stoppiong by, Jerome.
I brought this song up because I'm researching all the songs in the Rise Up Singing Songbook (the song is on page 250). I think Rise Up Singing has a fairly accurate transcription of Robin & Linda Williams version of the song - they do include the Holly Near final verse in italics.
