Thread Name: Info: Ding Dong Dollar
Subject: Info: Ding Dong Dollar
We've had the good fortune recently of Jim McLean joining the Mudcat. He has been adding bits and pieces of info to various threads on his own songs, but I thought that as info on this album is particularly hard to come by it might best be combined in one thread.
I haven't got the original 'Ding Dong Dollar' album but the 'Scottish Republican Songs' which is, I believe, a straight reissue. It contains the following tracks (I've added the info on authors and singers I've gleaned from various sources including Jim's recent postings):

- Ding Dong Dollar: Singer? (Trad / Thurso Berwick / John Mack / Jim McLean)

- I Shall Not Be Moved: Singer? (?)

- We Dinna Want Polaris: Singer? (Jim McLean)

- The Polis of Argyll: Singer? (Freddie Anderson)

- Paper Hankies: Singer? (?)

- Ye'll No Sit Here: Singer? (?)

- Anti-Polaris: Josh MacRae (Hamish Henderson)

- The Misguided Missile and the Misguided Miss: Singer? (?)

- Coronation Coronach (Scottish Breakaway): Singer? (Trad / Thurso Berwick)

- NAB for Royalty: Singer? (Jim McLean)

- They Say That We've Never Had It So Good: Singer? (Jim McLean)

- Camp in the Country: Singer? (Morris Blythman / Jim McLean / Nigel Denver)

- The Glesca Eskimos: Singer? (T. S. Law / Morris Blythman)

- The Freedom Come-All-Ye: Jackie O'Connor (Trad / Hamish Henderson)

- Ban Polaris - Hallelujah Singer? (?)

Please feel free to add to and correct!
