Subject: RE: Origins: Mystery Song Recording, Sixties or 70s
I think the words will not be how we find the song. That's been done by many others for about 4 or 5 months now.
SRS and Helen: Do either of you librarians have any way to search the human voice within recordings? Specifically, I'm wondering about the voices starting at 1:12 of the link in the OP.
Also, though likely unrelated, the word crash as a euphemism for sleep was in common usage in NYC in 1964/5. Also, "I can earn my keep for meal and a bed" is a strange way to phrase it, making me suspect that the singer isn't also the writer. However, I've been wrong before. ;-)
