When I was in Yorkshire last summer, a friend had a video copy of Sam Larner and Harry Cox that was made by the BBC in 1964, but was never aired. It was a half hour documentary called "The Singer and the Song", I think.

I am sure this might be what Suibhne is referring to.

Not a singer, but a Catskill NY fiddler, aged 70, circa 1929, who uses a dolly-peg for a mute & spits on his pegs to make them stick - in fact, he spits rather a lot, and maintains a professional composure throughout the various takes. This is the pure drop!

The Coppers/The Copper Family are one and the same. I doubt if there's any Youtube of Bob and Ron Copper (Who were The Copper Family after the passing of John and Jim and before the arrival to the singing of Bob's kids John and Jill) but I can't be sure. The young Coppers are the offspring of John Copper and his sister Jill and their respective spouses...however they are The Copper Family too of course and used their 'Young' moniker when they were indeed young!...now they should properly be called The Copper Family too along with with John, Jill and Jill's husband. Confused...so are we.

Just for interest, re the query by Suegorgeous five years ago, there's a good reason she couldn't find a traditional rendition of 'Bushes and Briars' on Youtube. It seems to have been quite rare in tradition, with only a handful of versions on The Full English and only a couple more in Roud. All of those versions have slightly 'vanilla' major key tunes, except for one: the rather nice modal / minor tune used in 'Far from the Madding Crowd' and popular on the folk scene was collected by Vaughan Williams from a Mr. Pottipher at Ingrave, Essex. RVW noted the tune in straight 3:4 time (it gets sung much more freely these days, and is better for it IMO), and only wrote down one verse, adding the rest later from a broadside. So, yet again, a folk revival favourite turns out to be - at least to some extent - a fake! Oh dear, back to New Penguin...

Which should tell us plenty about the difference between popular and educated tastes!

Tangentially: there are numerous YouTube recordings of "The Crabfish," including one unison version sung by two or maybe three generations of a nice American family somewhere in Dixie. (The video is called "The Crawfish," even they they clearly sing "codfish")

"Heartbreak Hotel" provides the tune for one singer.

A couple of points. 1. According to Partridge, "Scads" means "Much; e.g. 'scads of money': adopted, ca. 1935, from US, esp. by would be 'slick' thriller-writers." And 2. If you like Dillard Chandler, get hold of the Smithsonian Folkways CD & DVD set "Dark Holler - Old Love Songs and Ballads" (SFW CD 40159). The DVD is a copy of John Cohen's film "The End of an Old Song". It captures Dillard, his music and his comunity far better than anything before, or since.
