Jimmy C: Unless Enoch recorded BOTH versions his "Smashing of the Van" recording (1963, Ace of Club's label) is definitely about the Manchester incident as it contains the line "in Manchester one morning in the year of '67". Mind you Ewan MacVicar also said that it referred to Glasgow, I let that pass at the time, thinking he was mistaken, but maybe he was right! Yes, very curious.
This has to be my last post as my good lady is literally set to pull out the plug, down girl! Bye for now and thanks again to all who have contributed, Mudcat at its best. Hope to be up and running and posting from Argyll quite soon.
