"The Islanders never made a studio recording of Barndance, and time constraints on radio and TV meant that they rarely performed the piece in its entirety. This cut, which may be the only extant complete version, comes from a 1945 broadcast on CBC's then newly opened short wave service for the troops and others overseas. This dub comes from a posthumous LP, prepared six years after Messer's death, which purportedly garnered 100,000 pre-release orders."

Thanks meself! I never heard this with Charlie solo. The TV theme was him and Marg in duet with fewer and different words.
What a pity that the crap on TV and radio today ignores this heritage!
