Perhaps we can all take a deep breath and start again?

I've certainly heard this one, but at present I can't remember where; it does seem to have been recorded reasonably often, but the only references I've found so far are to performers whose work I don't know.  I did find what appears to be an extract from it, and would guess it to be not traditional, but a relatively recent composition:

With ice in the rigging
And death down below,
With the wind howling wild
And the glass reading low,
The wives and the sweethearts
Are women who know
The true cost of the silver darlings.

Perhaps this will help to jog some memories.

Silver Darlings is quite an old term for herring (they used to bring in good money) and was widely used.  At the moment I'm thinking that the song here is likely roughly contemporary with McColl's song, but I could easily be wrong.

Subject: Lyr Add: WHERE THE COHO FLASH SILVER^^
From: Skipjack K8
Date: 23 Oct 01 - 10:18 AM

I've had a trawl round, and came up with this, but it only seems to mention Silver Darlings once.

WHERE THE COHO FLASH SILVER

From Port Hardy one morning I cast off my line
The sea was all smooth, the weather just fine
All forecasts for luck, I was headed away
To where the Coho flash silver all over the bay
Where the Coho flash silver all over the bay

It was just before dawn when I reached the fish ground
So I lowered my poles and I let my lines down
I lit up my pipe and I waited and pray
To see the Coho flash silver all over the bay
See the Coho flash silver all over the bay

Well the sun came up shining and so did the fish
Them girlies were humming, what more could I wish
Them bells were all ringing, I was making it pay
Where the Coho flash silver all over the bay (x2)

Well they nipped all that morning 'til just after noon
They were so hungry they'd strike at an old leather shoe
"This must be heaven," to myself I did say
Where the Coho flash silver all over the bay (x2)

When I got home that evening, they asked, "How did you do?"
And I showed them silver darlings two-hundred and two
"Well ain't you the high liner, you're the best here today."
Where the Coho flash silver all over the bay (x2)

Well there's your doctors and lawyers and bankers and more
Your wheelers and dealers with the big deals galore
But let me be a trawler and king for a day
Where the Coho flash silver all over the bay (x2)^^

It wouldn't be Ivan Drever's Tall Ships, Amos; that doesn't contain the line Dimplydoo quoted, and it doesn't mention Aberdeen.  As I said, the term was a common one and can be relied on to turn up in a good many songs about herring; what we need is the song with that title...

From: captain wheels

SILVER DARLINGS


O herrings are harvests that fishermen glean
Where flashes the silver through deep ocean green,
But when herring harvests reach old Aberdeen
They're known as the silver darlings.

CHORUS: Silver darlings on Aberdeen quay,
Brought by the fisherman home from the sea
To the city that stands 'twixt the Don and the Dee,
The home of the silver darlings.

The boats leave the harbour, their wake spreading wide
And empty they roll with the swell of the tide.
O soon may their hatches be thrown open wide
For a catch of the silver darlings.

With ice in the rigging and death down below,
The gales screaming wild and the glass hanging low,
The wives and the sweethearts are women who know
The price of the silver darlings.

Noreen, the phrase "silver darlin's" is / was a common term and was used by the people recorded by Parker and MacColl for 'Singing the fishing'. As I'm at work i can't check the persons name, but I remember the phrase occuring in a passage which goes along the lines of "..they talk to the fish, absolutely cajole them into the nets, spin up, spin up my silver darlin's.."

Can't help with the original request though.

G'day Noreen, petem et al,

Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger interviewed a lot of fishermen for the BBC Radio ballad Singing the Fishing - particularly old Sam Larner, of Winterton. The song Shoals of Herring came very directly from Sam's own words and lifetime fishing.

I remember Ewan & Peggy saying that, when they took the song back and sang it to Sam, he declared; "Why, I've known that song all my life!" I would hope that means that they really caught the sound and fact of Sam's experience.

Regards,

Bob Bolton

gives me a start - (a very good one) :)

I am assuming the "/" marks are the end of a lyrical line. and the "hi" and "low" are self explanatory.

now - if you could do the same thing for the time values of the notes - say with 1=whole note, 2=half, 3=dotted half 4=quarter note, 5=dotted quarter, 6=eighth note, 7=dotted eighth, 8=sixteenth note; 9=dotted sixteenth I can put the two together

Any rests? there is one space in your last line of the chorus and I'm not sure whether or not that is intentional.

I have a version of this excellent song on an old cassette by a group called Wickford Express: the tape is called Fair Winds and was published (in 1986) by Fair Winds Music, PO Box 196, Wickford, Rhode Island 02852, USA.

I notice that the entry for Silver Darlings is flagged "Courtesy Jon Campbell", so I presume he has some control over the copyright: not a name that I recognise, though.

The principal members of Wickford Express seem to be Dave and Cindy Peloquin, and Dan Cohen apparently plays fiddle on Silver Darlings.

Hope that gives you a few more leads.

Oh herring, our harvest that fishermen glean
Where flashes the silver through deep ocean green,
And when herring harvest reach old Aberdeen,
They're known as the silver darlin's. CHORUS

The boats leave the harbour, their wakes spreadin' wide
And empty they roll with the swell of the tide.
Oh, soon may their hatches be thrown open wide
With a catch of the silver darlin's. CHORUS

There's ice on the riggin' and death down below,
With the gales screaming wild and the lamps hangin' low.
The wives and the sweethearts are women who know
The price of the silver darlin's. CHORUS

These words are from the CD "Lines Upon The Water," Gaye Anthony & Trish Norman. I don't know who wrote it, or if there are other words. The CD has some lovely songs on, though.

I wrote the song along with Bob Halfin and Hulskrammer and it's called Silver Darlings. A couple of corrections to the lyrics kindly supplied by Wuzzle:

Oh herrings are harvests that fishermen glean,
..

They're known as the silver darlings.

Silver darlings on Aberdeen quay,
Brought by the fishermen home from the sea
To the city that stands 'twixt the Don and the Dee,
The home of the Silver Darlings.

Subject: Lyr Add: FAREWEEL YOU SILVER DARLINS (Roy Gullane
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 01 Feb 03 - 05:32 PM

The above song, SILVER DARLINGS by Bob Halfin and Jim McLean, was previously posted here.

There seems to be yet another song called THE SILVER DARLIN'S (click), written by Brian McNeill and Dougie Pincock, and sung by The Battlefield Band (with Alison Kinnaird) on their album "Music in Trust, Volume 1", 1986.

Then there is this song called "Fareweel You Silver Darlins", recorded by The Tannahill Weavers on their album "Leaving St. Kilda", 1996:

(The following lyrics and notes are from The Official Tannahill Weavers Website)

FAREWEEL YOU SILVER DARLINS   
(Roy Gullane)

When this world was younger, I fished the ocean sae deep and wide,
But noo these days are flotsam and washed up wi' the tide.
I sit hame starin' at the fire,
Too young tae gledly be retired,
And mind on a' they guid days before we had tae say:

CHORUS: Fareweel, ye silver darlin's.
Nae mair we'll trawl those North Sea shoals.
We left the auld girl in the harbour,
Nae mair tae feel the ocean's roll.

My faither worked the trawlers. his auld man did the very same.
For a' the fowk in this toon the fishin' was their game.
A way of life grew auld and grey.
The young move oot or waste away.
They've never kenned the guid days before we had tae say: CHORUS

When this world was younger, the hale toon worked on this empty quay.
The fleet streetched oot afore me as faur as I could see.
Noo at the harbour I maun staun,
And count the ships on baith my hauns,
And mind on a' they guid days before we had tae say: CHORUS

Aye noo the harbour's empty, like a' the poackets in this auld toon.
The government will help ye. Aye, we'll a' flee tae the moon!
And noo the streets in front o' me
are deid just like the very sea.
What happened tae the guid days before we had tae say: CHORUS

There's rules and regulations and laws that naebody understands.
They're fishing here frae a'place but we must bide on land.
Some o' us still earn a crust
While other boats just turn tae rust
And mind on a' they guid days before we had tae say: CHORUS

[On a recent holiday to northern Scotland, the author found himself in conversation with a retired trawlerman. He was told that when the fisherman was a youngster, the children would cross the bay by walking over the decks of the trawlers. It was hard to imagine this given the dearth of boats in the bay at the time. The size of the fleet in the 90's is but a mere fraction of what it used to be, and is ever shrinking.

[This song is based on that conversation. The expletives, however, have been removed from the fisherman's references to the government.]

I heard Dave Peloquin (of Wickford Express) sing this song 7 years ago and it being pre-mudcat he said HE wasn't even able to track down the credits to the song. I hit gold a couple months ago when I found somebody else who knew the song and had the authors, but not till this search did I get the specifics. Thank you Jim McLean, it's a beautiful song, and thanks Mudcat for making these quests so much easier to satisfy!!

For Dimple -

Iain's Notes:
The first case of foot and mouth disease was diagnosed in February 2001 at an abattoir in Essex.
The source was traced to a farm in Northumberland.
The disease spread rapidly throughout Britain - with Cumbria being the worst affected. In Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway was one of the first areas to be hit. I've written the song from a Scottish perspective, after watching an old farmer break down on television as he explained to a reporter how he had list everything.

Ill Wind Frae Cumberland

chorus:
Its an ill wind blawn frae Cumberland
That is sweeping o'er the Solway sand
Wi' disease and devastation fanned aroon

Noo the pyres burn and fortunes fa'
The length and breadth o' Gallowa
And anger bides in countryside and toon

v1
See the fairmer in ahint his gate
Broken doon in sic a state
While government debate whit should be done

A' his fields and his pastures bare
O' the kye and yowes he'd grazing there
Noo victims o' a scare
And the slaughtering gun

chorus: Its an ill wind blawn frae Cumberland....

v2
There's nae words o' hope can ease the pain
Or mak him want tae stairt again
When a' a lifetimes work in flames
You see.....................??? (oops, my copy is missing this line!)

Aye its hard enough to mak it pay
But when ye ken nae ither way
Whit is lost and gaun this day
Has brought misery

chorus: Its an ill wind blawn frae Cumberland...
    _________________________

Alas tho I have the tune in my head, I have no recording of it so either you'll have to contact Iain or me to have it sung to you! (Iain writes for accompanying himself on guitar -- then I learn some of them to sing traditionally / un-accompanied so -- best to get Iain's own version!!)
There;'s a possibility Jim Jack and John Graham have got this one from Iain, if so you might hear them do it - -- ?

Yes, fellow Guest, this thread is a corker.

Is there not a Scottish play, a theatre piece,
called The Silver Darlings, as well?
Maybe named after the song, maybe just named after the saying.

I seem to recall reading about
Raindogs, the theatre company founded by the likes of Robert Carlyle
in Glasgow,
staging a production years ago of The Silver Darlings.

First I had heard of the term.

I wonder if dimplydoo dimple and nutty are no longer with us.

See Mudcat ThreadId=159358, I would link to it if I wasn't lousy at it.

Just came from a Google search, and had my ignorance... corrected a little.

1941, Neil Gunn published a novel called The Silver Darlings.
Sad to admit, I never before heard of Neil Gunn.
In this novel, protagonist Finn sings a version of The Cambric Shirt,
and it was this lyric which prompted Mudcatter Jack Campin
to starte ThreadId=159358 in search of info about this variation.

Neil Gunn's novel is a historical-fiction rendering
of the era following the Highland Clearances;
the Highlanders who have been evicted, and pushed to the shore,
must now earn their living fishing for herring.
Hence the title.

Since then, playwright John McGrath, he of
The Cheviot, the Stag, and the Black Black Oil,
has adapted Gunn's novel into a stage play of the same name.
It is this adaptation of which I first heard.

And when it was premiered in Glasgow, at the Citizen's Theatre,
young Finn was played by a young fellow in his first big professional stage appearance:
Kevin McKidd, no less.

Jim Maclean off the topic.. The late Bob Halfin suggested my father should write a song called 'You'll never get used to Uist'. It was probably as bad as it sounds - and is now completely lost -existing only as a song title on a contract.   When the contract came out - it was credited as Halfin/Ross - even though Mr. Halfin only gave the title! Long dead now, Bob Halfin was one of those old tin pan alley types, with cases of lyrics and songs..and dodgy contracts!

Bob was an incredible character. He wrote many songs, some good some bad ... I'm a Pink toothbrush, you're a Blue Toothbrush .. for example. I don't think he altered Halskammer's poem, Silver Darlings, but by giving it to put music to it justified a claim on it in Bob's eyes. As you say, he was an old Tin Pan Alley type but I question your statement 'he has dodgy contacts'.

It turns out that English cinema snatched up
"The Silver Darlings" and hurried to make a film out of it.
Novelist Neil M. Gunn assisted with the adaptation.
The film can be looked up on the Internet Movie Data Base.
Like the novel, the film was before 1950.

Don't know if the film met with success at the time,
but it seems to have sunk into oblivion since.

Perhaps a fresh attempt at filming it is in order,
working from the stage adaptation?

As for Neil M. Gunn's novel,
there's no shortage of second-hand copies for sale online,
and English publisher Faber & Faber
have since reissued the book in both hardcover and paperback.

Guest-Rossey:
that's interesting re the lost song -- now only a title ! I am currently on the hunt for a lost song (think thread title is Last Vango in Harris)probably composed around 1973/4 in the area of Tarbert, Harris and commenting on the attempt by Sir Hereward the Ladwake (!)who owned Amhuinnsuidhe Castle for about 10 years (late '60s - late '70s) to have the public road that went very close to the front of the castle (wonder which was there first?) bypassed. Sir H was a school friend (Eton?) of the leader of Inverness county council -- I think, someone of influence --- who offered to fund the bypass- - however there was a public outcry and it never happened.
The song I seen (Last Vango in Harris) was set to Chatanooga Choo Choo tune and began:
Pardon me boy, is this the Amhuinnsuide bypass,
Is Sir Hereward in, I've heard a lot about him -- - -
Alas the guy who composed it died a number of years ago so I am trying to to contact people who might have been in sessions or bars or camping etc on Harris / Lewis in the mid -'70s, perhaps recall a phrase or two, so we can build a jigsaw of bits and weave them together -- - - failing which we plan a gathering in Autumn where armed with the facts of the event we shall endeavour to remake the song ourselves!

Jim Maclean - oops! You misread what I said about Bob Halfin. You didn't see the R - it was dodgy contracts - not contacts! Minch Music co. had the old style 100 percent mechanical copyright tie you to them forever small print - whereas now a lot of people now sign contracts with reversionary rights. I found a local press story about Halfin writing a song about the beauty of Tomnahurich Cemetery Inverness, that one died a death. He used to find any novelty angle on music and try and right something about it. But a darned cheek to claim the share of a song just for suggesting the title! I do wonder if my father's tune was any good, sadly even he couldn't remember what he wrote!
(Though the song doesn't now exist so I'll never know how bad it was!)   

Re- Gallus Moll, Last Vango in Harris, your talking about a parody as it's set to someone else's copyright tune, and there are already lyrics set to it - so a lost lyrical parody rather an original compositional copyright work. Interesting though.. I must see if I can find any mention of it elsewhere!

Sorry Guest if I misread your post. I do agree that claiming for a title suggestion is cheeky. Some people in Tin Pan Alley did take advantage, I lost out a couple of times due to my näivity.
Bob's greatest line was "Mr Ben Nevis, you're as old as the hills". I don't think that can be beaten!!

Thanks Guest 16 April 12.55 - that had not occurred to me! I imagine there are many parodies (?) in existence eg for amateur dramatic group pantomimes etc? Folk songs even- - so many borrowed tunes!

As for 'Last Vango in Harris' - it was very specific, about a single event (which did not in the end actually happen)and those that vaguely recall it are not 100% certain it was much more than the title and intro -- tho' I have a gut feeling with that title there must be a mention of camping somewhere?
I might have to head for Tarbert, Harris and start quizzing everybody over a certain age --- think I'll contact the castle too, the estate became a community buyout enabled by the current owner, and the castle a hotel I think, probably employing many locals --

I knew Allan Law who apparently composed the words - but I never heard him sing it in Argyll -- - (or maybe I wisnae there the time(s) he did?!
Think it is like the Ballad of The Torrey Canyon, of its time and place - --
Anyone who has contact with Lewis / Harris 'folkies from the mid '70s please ask! (and let me know---!!!!)
