Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Johnny Lad / Johnnie Lad
Dear Jim Dixon I heard your story of the recordings of the song Johnny Lad. The Corries version of Johnny lad was the one both myself and my friend heard the song before we got our band together and performed it a lot in our gigs. We played and sang this a lot on our shows and it became a well reserved in all the songs we sung and played. My band were called Braveheart a name that stuck in my head to keep singing and playing. The Kingston Trio did not sing Johnny Lad. There song was called Genie Glen a song written by former member Dave Gar. Thank you Jim for saying this from Joe
