Subject: RE: Music Hall and the Copper repertoire?

Armed with Jon Dudley’s list of Copper song’s, the best place to start would be Michael Kilgariff’s book SING US ONE OF THE OLD SONGS <-B> A Guide to Popular Song1860-1920.
I have made a start but there is a shed in my garden that needs more re-building work . I will look back later and see if I can add anything more from my copy of Killgariff which other Mudcatters have not added in my absence. (I got down the list as far as Pimply Pork)
