i'll have to give it a listen. i tremble at walking in the footsteps of dick gaughan, so haven't tried to sing it myself, but its a great song.

i did hard rock mining, drilling and blasting when i was young and saw more than a few (both in accidents and strikes) lives ruined by the violence of the job, that song brings a tear to my eye when gaughan sings it.

Thank you, Gerry, for that tip. I purchased Judy Pinder's CD and her version of "Pound A Week Rise" is well done!

Judy Pinder recorded it on her CD, Foreign Shore. Her website, http://www.jpinder.com/, only has information about her art, none about her music. The CD may be available at http://www.indie-cds.com/

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!
