In 1976, Bill Destler, Tom McHenry and I formed Rock Creek. We sang together for 11 years. In 1984, we recorded a cassette entitled "Yonder Come Day". The recording has long been out of print. I just uploaded the song files to
http://www.4shared.com/dir/39312996/bdece4c7/Rock_Creek.html
where the following songs are available for free download. It is my hope that people will want to sing them and pass them along.

Rolling Down To Old Maui
10,000 Miles Away
Yonder Come Day
Poor Little Jesus
All I Do, The Church Keep A-Grumblin'
Chesapeake Gold
Crazy Gibberish
Ring It In
I Don't Intend To Die In Egypt Land
John Cherokee
Judgment
Rolling and Flowing
Take Me Out To The Ball Game and
This Song of Love

Hi Wally! I still have my CD of "Yonder Come Day," and I love it! Also love the stuff you guys did on "Sharon Mountain Harmony" -- one of the best albums ever made, IMHO.

Hope all is well with you,
Nancy

I'd like to put in some notes about the sources of the songs while I remember them.

Rolling Down to Old Maui - I moved from New York City to Washington, DC in late 1974. At a going away party, Jeff Warner gave me the sheet music. I believe it was transcribed from the singing of Stan Hugill. The yip at the end of the second line of the chorus was in the sheet music. I don't of anyone else who puts it in though.

Yonder Come Day - Bill learned this song either from the singing of Bessie Jones or The Moving Star Hall Singers of the Georgia Sea Islands.

10,000 Miles Away and Poor Little Jesus - were brought to the group by Tom. I don't know his sources.

Chesapeake Gold - was written by Bill. He was inspired by anticle in the Baltimore Sun about couples who, year after year, returned to freshen their memories of the romantic boat tours of Baltimore Harbor.

I haven't a clue as to the source of Crazy Gibberish. I think that Lise Neustadt recorded it but she learned it from us.

Ring It In - was written by Cal and Lonnie Herrmann's daughter. Anne.

I Don't Intend to Die in Egypt Land - is one of those miracle songs that I learned after hearing only once on a live radio broadcast in New York in the 1960s. It was sung by Josh White on Oscar Brand's show.

John Cherokee - came from the singing of Bob Walser who found it in the archives of the Library of Congress.

Judgment came from the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music.

Rolling and Flowing came to us from Dillon Bustin. He either got it from "Steamboatin' Days" or he wrote it. Maybe a combination of the two. One never knows with Dillon.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game - written by Jack Norcross, it is now in the public domain. I heard Michael Cooney sing an offbeat version that was off by two. When we worked on it, we folk processed it to one off.

Lastly, This Song of Love was brought to the group by Bill. When I'm next in touch with him, I'll try to find out his source.

Fabulous, Wally. Thanks for all this! I think I have the cassette of this lurking around, but I love having it all here.

Hi Wally,

Thanks for the downloads, they're great! Your music and mine have crossed paths often even if we haven't. I was Sandy and Caroline's accompanist on 'I've Got a Song'.

One quick correction: Cal and Lani's daughter is named Alex.

Best,
Ray Frank

Thank you Frank. I also spelled Lani's name wrong. I should know better.

Wonderful, wonderful stuff.

I think we didn't realize how much we owed to you guys.

I don't ever even remember the cassette being available.   I must have learned some of this from Tim Slattery, who must have bought a copy of the cassette.

We took "Crazy Gibberish" up to the Eastern PA Folklore Society over 20 years ago and it's still a smash hit there.   We'll definitely credit you guys next time we sing it.   Did you also used to make gestures while singing it?   Maybe that's where we got that idea.

I lead "Ring It In" every Christmas-New Years season at my SATB Christmas party--and others. Such a perfectly joyous song for the occasion.   Again, a big hit.   I'll definitely credit both you and the author next time. I'm pretty sure Tim and I credit you.

And the "Ballgame" version we must have learned from you or Michael Cooney. Did you guys used to do it with one beat off and two beats off, in addition to the regular rhythm? I remember trying to do that--and it ain't easy.

And Tim still sings "Rowing and Flowing" and has always said he learned it from you, I'm virtually certain.

You guys have sown some musical seeds which will never die.

So it seems from your notes that you did "Ballgame" with one beat off.   As I said, we've tried to do it with both one and two beats off at the same time.   A real workout.

I just checked with Dillon Bustin on "Rolling and Flowing". It is his composition. And a damned fine one too. Dillon is one of the really, really good songwriters.

Additional notes re: John Cherokee

"John Cherokee" comes from Captain John Robinson's July 28th 1917 article "Songs of the Chantey-Man III." _The Bellman_ 23(576): 98.

I first heard it from Tom Goux and Jacek Sulanowski though I wouldn't be surprised to find that Stuart Frank had a role in all this . . .

Aussie band "The Roaring Forties" sing a version of this song on their Shore Leave CD. They credit it to Dillon.

Re: "Rolling and Flowing" - I found Dillon on Facebook and we chatted a bit. He did write and compose it. Also told me that Sandy Paton retitled it and recorded it as "Roustabout Song"
