Thread Name: Versions: The Turkish Reverie/Golden Vanity
Subject: The Turkish Reverie
Does anybody know the background of the song "The Turkish Reverie?". It tells the same story as that of "The Golden Vanity." Is it an American variant? Did it originate as a broadside ballad? Did it have a single composer, and if so, who? Thanks
