I lost my vinyl copy of the above years ago..it was on Translantic and was by Isla Cameron and Tony Britton.

Anyone out there know where I can get a copy downloaded, will pay for it if need be.

I don't know the songs you've mentioned, but I do know, "Playing Dominos and Shootin' Dice" which is ABOUT love lust and loose living, ina humerous sort of way. And then there's, "The Wild Side of Life" and "Dim Lights, Thick Smoke, and Loud, Loud Music". I'll post the lyrics to any of these if you wish. I'll keep checking this thread .

Not to mention "Cigarettes and Whiskey and Wild Wild Women", "A Rambler and a Gambler", "A Rake and a Rambling Boy", "Whiskey in the Jar" and about twenty others which will now begin slowly seeping into my mind preventing me from getting any work done. Thanks, thanks!! :>)

Regards,

A.

"Rambling Rover" should not be overlooked.

I'm not familiar with it, but the title alone is enough to make me want a copy! 16th & 17th century English music is a particular interest of mine; I'd be very keen to learn more about this record (dating myself by the very USE of the word!) if it's eventually located!

Lillian Roxon's Rock Encyclopia describes Isla Cameron as having a prettier voice than early Joan Baez. Is this true?

Then again..the more modern songs can be funny and tittilating also.

Oh say, gentle maiden, may I be your lover Condemn me no longer to moan and to weep Struck down like a hawk, I lie wounded and bleeding Oh let down your drawbridge, I'll enter your keep Enter your keep nonie nonie, enter your keep nonie nonie Let down your drawbridge, I'll enter your keep

Alas gentle errant, I am not a maiden I'm married to Sir Oswald, that cunning old Celt He's gone to wars for twelve months or longer And he's taken the key to my chastity belt Chastity belt nonie nonie, chastity belt nonie nonie Taken the key to my chastity belt

Fear not gentle lady for I know a locksmith To his shop we will go, on his door we will knock And try to avail us of his technical knowledge And see if he's able to unpick your lock Unpick your lock nonie nonie, unpick your lock nonie nonie See if he's able to unpick your lock

Alas sir and madam, to help I'm unable My technical knowledge is to no avail I can't find the secret to your combination For the cunning old bastard has fitted a Yale Fitted a Yale nonie nonie, fitted a Yale nonie none The cunning old bastard has fitted a Yale

I come from the wars with dire news of disaster A terrible mishap I have to confide As my ship was a passing the Straits of Gibraltar I carelessly dropped the key over the side Over the side nonie nonie, over the side nonie nonie Carelessly dropped the key over the side

Alas and alack I am locked up forever Then up spoke the page boy "Leave it to me" If you will allow me to enter your chamber I'll open it up with me duplicate key Duplicate key nonie nonie, duplicate key nonie nonie Open it up with me duplicate key

Isla Cameron has a wonderful voice..and Tony Britton..who is in fact a comedy actor...does the monologues and shakespearian stuff..all in all a very enjoyable set..and one you could let your maiden aunt listen to.

Amos, :I TOLD YOU NOT TO MENTION, ETC ETC.(Gotcha)

The Wild Side of Life (melody same as "I'm thinkin' tonight of my blue eyes"
Recorded by Hank Thompson, around 1953-54 or so

I
You wouldn't read the letter that I wrote you
You asked me not to call you on the phone
But, there's something I've been wanting to tell you ,
So I wrote it in the words of this song.

(chorus)
I didn't know God made honky-tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one who ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life.

II
The glamour of the gay night life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flows
There you wait to be anybody's darling
And give usp the truest love you'll ever know

Ah, yes---"Westron Wynd"; I'm atempting to be hot on this record's trail, Alan; here are the only 2 links I found on Google; looks like it'll only be available on LP!

Now you're sure to get posts from Women who prefer Kitty Wells' "It wasn't God Who Made Honkey Tonk Angels", and rightly so. I only know the chorus to this one which is an answer to "The Wild Side Of Life"

It wasn't God who made honky-tonk angels, as you wrote in the words of your song.
Too many times married men think they're still single
Which has caused many a good girl to go wrong.
