Subject: Female Vocalist and 'The South Coast'
From: GUEST,Lee

My father had a tape of folk music that had a rendition of the song "The South Coast" sung by a female vocalist. Unforunately, I do not remember her name or the name of the album and do not have the tape.

I think it was a folk song festival compilation of the 1960's (the Kingston Trio was also on this tape).

If you could help me, I would really like to find and purchase a copy of this song sung by this female vocalist.

Whatever help you can give me.

Thanks, Lee

G'day Lee,

Is that related (or identical) to Jeremy Taylor's poem All Along the South Coast? (Which may have had a bit of trot through these cyberspaces)

Regards,

Bob Bolton

There's a song that Ramblin' Jack Elliot does SOUTH COAST words were by Lillian Bos Ross, music by Sam Eskin(I believe). The chorus is; "The South Coast is a wild coast & lonely". Is that the one you're talking about?

The Kingston Trio recorded this one too. I don't recall a female singing it - "I won my wife in a cardgame".

All along the South Coast
The sea is sort of there
And the sun is sort of shining
Through a sort of salt sea air
There's a sort of "shall we", "shan't we"
A sort of "yes" and "no"
A sort of rolling up of trouser leg and dipping in of toe
.....
And all along the South Coast
Can still be sort of seen
A corner of sort of England
That's forever sort of green

No, I can't imagine that being recited at a US festival, somehow!

Neither can I imagine how a woman could turn the lyrics of Jack Elliot's "South Coast".

Is there a third "South Coast" somewhere?

Alan

Tom Russell recorded 'South Coast' a la Ramblin' Jack too - 'Songs of the old West'- he won his wife at the same card game

I sang it for many years. As a evocation of a place and time (the BIG SUR on California's coast) it couldn't be beat. Lilian Bos Ross also wrothe a good novel called "THE STRANGER" which was made into an o.k. (2-star) film called "ZANDY'S BRIDE with Gene Hackman as a coastal settler who brings in a mail order bride. It should've been better.

i would bet it is the one about California where the lion rules the barranca....ala Ramblin Jack, Tom Russel, etc.

Perhaps this was done by Katy Moffet she did an album called cowboy girl and has recorded quite a few such ballads...

I taught it to Jack Elliott. The original tune by Sam Eskin was changed from Bos Ross's which was based on Irene Goodnight.

Rich Dehr (of a group called the Easy Riders in Los Angeles) popularized it on KGIL, a folk program from a station in the San Fernando Valley.

My friend Dave Zeitlin did a definitive memorable version of it.

I believe Herta Marshall is whom you're looking for. 1957 Folkways album To You with Love.
