Subject: RE: Looking for forgotten song-men from Drumnadrochit
To CND and Helen,

Thanks for all your help.

The CD arrived today. It is indeed the same song.... "Recipe For Life" by Watt Nicoll.

Although it's the first time I've heard it in over 50 years, I instantly recognise the lyrics and the tune(Same as Whitby Tailor...I'd be interested in finding out a little more about the origins of the melody too. Maybe, The Session might help there?)

It was not the same recording as played on "Country Meets Folk" however and, as I recall, it was a band performance.

As I say, a good fun song to sing in a session and I can elaborate on the tune too and even add something on the end.

Thanks once again.
