Thread Name: Obit: Pogues member Shane MacGowan (1957-2023)
Subject: RE: Obit: Shane MacGowan (1957-2023) of the Pogues
You know, Helen I also discovered "Freeborn Man of the USA" long after it was first released. I had all the Pogues LP's, the earlier ones on vinyl, and in the first decade of this millennium I was watching a legendary Cops and Drug Dealers TV series, "The Wire" and on one episode the detectives all gathered in their local Baltimore bar and were singing along with the Pogues to "Freeborn Man". I got all excited and thought that they were recording again and that Shane was singing better than ever only to find out it was released around the time of "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash".
