Subject: RE: DTStudy: Hot Ash-Pelt (Hot Asphalt)
Funny that nobody seems to remember that the very popular Scottish duo, Robin Hall & Jimmie McGregor recorded this song , titled "The Hot Ashphalt" sometime in the early to mid nineteen sixties. They excluded that Chorus "They laid it in the hollows etc., etc. " using "You may talk about your sailors..." instead. I have the LP somewhere ....(my usual excuse , nowadays !
P.S. Does anybody remember Jimmie McGregor doing "workshop sessions" in guitar accompaniment, in Cecil Sharpe House, Camden, around the same era ??
