Thread Name: Bert Lloyd singing Laszlo Feher / Anathea
Subject: RE: Bert Lloyd singing Laszlo Feher / Anathea
I wasn't able to find a Bert Lloyd recording. I did find a Hungarian recording of "Fehér László balladája" with an entirely different melody:
And another:
Here's an English-language version by "Boxer John" which does not use the usual Judy Collins melody (but it doesn't use the Hungarian melody, either):
The song was collected by Bela Bartok, and A.L. Lloyd translated it into English. Was Bert Lloyd also the composer of the melody Judy Collins made popular?
