Subject: The Prism Song
From: GUEST,padie

In the late l960's I had a folk album by a singer I believe was named Gail something. There was a song on the album called The Prism Song (I think). I would love to know this artist's full name and get a copy of the song. The lyrics included "Walking home from school today, I met a nice man on my way. He gave me a prism, shiny and clean, prettiest thing I've ever seen. You know it's red and yellow, blue and green, prettiest thing I have ever seen. Red and yellow, blue and green, Lord this world treats a little child mean." Does this ring a bell with anyone? Please let me know if you know the artist's name or the album name or the song's true name. Thanks so much. Padie

The only "Gail" I can think of is Gail Garnett who sang "We'll Sing in the Sunshine".

The lyrics sound like something she would do.

DAMN! I lost it! Anyway, it is Gail Garnett and it is on her "We'll Sing in the Sunshine" album. You can find it on Amazon. If you buy it on-line, go through the Mudcat Cafe. That way Mudcat will benefit!

What I recall about Gail Garnett was that, at least on the "We'll Sing in the Sunshine" song, she was ever so slightly flat much of the time and it drove me ever so slightly nuts. It was likely something like a quarter-tone off, but enough to notice. It didn't seem to bother folks enough to keep her from selling tons of records, though.

This is one of the more populiar songs at my concerts ... it's a real grabber. My dim memory says ... and I could well be wrong ... that Gail emmigrated from Austrailia to Canada at 16, and this song became a huge hit. However, if you locate her original recording, it's quite different in that she does it as a rock and roll song. Quite puzzleing to me. I'm sure that someone will soon correct my information ... I'm always ready to be corrected! CHEERS, bob(deckman)nelson
