Subject: RE: Origins: Streets of London (Ralph McTell)^^^
Interesting remark from Mary Hopkin during a concert at Royal Festival Hall in 1972, where she indicated that Ralph had given permission for her to sing "Streets of London", and if she did, then he would sing "Those Were the Days". Are there any recordings (or even recollections) of Ralph actually doing so? Can't imagine it to be honest, but then again. I hardly think that the song particularly suited Mary Hopkin either, but that's for another thread perhaps....
