Thread Name: Origins: How many versions of Geordie
Subject: RE: How many versions of Geordie
There's a fine American version on Various Artists 'Virginia Traditions: Ballads from British Tradition' Global Village CD1002 under the title 'As I Walked Out on London Bridge'. The singer is S.S. 'Sam' Russell. Russell was recorded in Marion, Virginia, on 13 November 1936. The recording is a bit noisy and 'cavernous', but the voice is clear and the performance wonderful.
