Thread Name: Alan Lomax? recording - Who's singing?
Subject: Alan Lomax? recording - Who's singing?
I bought very recently a budget priced CD called Scots Pipe and drinking Songs.
It features very few credits, but names Alan Lomax as produceer, and says "feat. Ewan McColl and Peggy Seeger".
Now some of the tracks are McColl and Seeger. But there are others on there such as "He Widna Wint His Gruel", "McPherson's Rant", "Never Wed an Auld Man", "Johnnie o Braidislea", and "Jock McGraw" featuring other obviously older, and I'm guessing traditional singers. These may be source singers. This was as I say a budget release - there is NO information on the CD or the case. Anyone have any thoughts who some of these might be?
Never wed an Auld man is sung by a woman, the rest are male singers, and I think they are all different singers, or at least all recorded at separate sessions...
Any ideas welcomed...
