I'm a collector of coal mining songs & would like to find any cover versions of Ed Pickford's brilliant "Pound A Week Rise" that I haven't heard.
In addition to Ed Pickford's original, I have cover versions by the following artists:
Seven Nations Dick Gaughan The Paperboys John Doyle & Liz Carroll FinTan BOWI The Exiles (Enoch Kent, Bobby Campbell & Gordon McCulloch) The Demon Barbers Terry Murphy Dave Dupplaw (excellent version on YouTube) Rathkeltair (on YouTube)
Does anyone know of any other artists who have covered this song - and where I can find a copy?
Thanks for any help!

I don't know about finding a copy, but it was covered by a Baltimore (Maryland, USA) group called "Congress". Banjoist Bob Rickert sang the lead.
