Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Smashing of the GLASGOW van
As promised I mailed a copy of Wolfgang's newspaper report to Enoch Kent. He received it today and phoned me right away.He is certain that he did not record this song. He recorded the Manchester one on Top Rank Records, In fact he never even heard of the Glasgow incident until I phoned him last week. He found it interesting as he was born and bred in Glasgow. I did hear from a niece in Ireland, She has a recording of the song but no artist's name, the tape is a compilation of various singers. My sister has the words in a book (I hope they are the Glasgow words). The tape and book are on their way to me. I will keep you posted.

This is going to drive me nuts, I would have bet my life that I learned the song from one of EC's recordings.
