Okay, okay, khandu. But the last time I tried to do lyrics the lines would not seperate so I'm a tad concerned they'rte just gonna get like that agin...

"Arthur and Sally"

In the backwoods of Spotsylvania
A grave site can be found
Rustin' iron gate and two carved stones
Read "Arthur and Sally Brown"

Chorus:

Now, Arthur and Sally
Back in the pines
Share croppin' teneats
With dreams on their mins
Now, We ain't talkin' no trips to China
No mansion on the hill
Just forty acres of Virgina soil
And a little corn liquer still

Yeah, the corn grew full and oh so tall
And the wood did Arthur split
But not outside the kitchen
But down by the crick

With the crops all in
He'd be back in the woods
Smoke snakin' thru the oak
Brewin' shine that'd find it's time
On tables of city folk

Chorus

Now they're liein' over on yonder ridge
Been there since '33
And since... there ain't been no shine so fine
in this old county

Yeah, they're liein' over on yonder ridge
Been there since '33
And since... there ain't been no shine so fine
In Spotsylvanee
Yeah, this old county

Chorus


The song is based on a real cemetary that I indeed found back in the woods in Spotslyvania County and my son, Ben, and I are the only folks that I know of who can find it. I go once a year, take a rake, lopping sheres and a saw and clean it up. It kills off an entire day since its a 2 hour drive down there and another hour walk thru some of the thickest woods.

Great story, Bobert! I have one very similar. One day, while driving in a remote area of the state game area, I notice a cutout in the woods. It was all overgrown, but I checked it out. I found 4 grave stones. They were Catholic, a Mr. and Mrs. Duffy and what I assume were two daughters. The girls died within a very short time of each other, and I assume that was due to some affliction of the day. Mom died a short time later, within a few years. Dad died 10 years after the girls. I wondered why they were all by there lonesome out in this remote area. The deaths occurred in the late 1800's and I can only assume, based on a cemetary being only a few miles away, that because of being Irish Catholics, they weren't allowed in that plot. In checking old maps, I found the site listed as a "Jesuit cemetary". I stop in every so often, sit with them, play them some tunes on the Low D, or practice my Uilleann pipes with them. Sometimes I read from "1000 Years of Irish Poetry" to them, or talk to them about the North of Ireland and where it is at. Another member of my parish sprung for a new fence, and we try to spruce the place up every so often.

All the best,

Mick

Bobert and Mick, we have more in common than I imagined!

There's an old cemetary on my Grandad's old home place. Most of the inhabitants died in the 1850-60's. Many of the stones were uprooted and fallen, themselves being buried under years of leaves. I have spent many a day there poking in the ground with a knife to find the stones, and resurrecting them.

It was a peaceful place, way out in the woods, far from the living. Many a tune from my guitar has been played there to honor those whose bodies lay beneath the earth, whose spirits surrounded me and sang along with the music.

BTW, the Plum thread has more posts than any of the others!!! Nya nee nya nee nya nya!

Yes indeed, Roseville fair-Bill Staines. We live in Yorkshire (UK) and we have a place called 'Rosedale' in the North yorkshire moors national park, it has a lovley abbey etc. It also has a fair- so its just how we sing it! Rosedale fair. Credit to Bill though. Harpy. (do you know the cheeky begers in the chat room call me 'harpy', well I suppose it could be worse!) PS, Amos, well done, we will be comming over to have a go on your steam ship one of these days!

the song is definately Roseville Fair, words/music copyright Bill Staines... 1979

i'm sure he would agree to it being included on the cd... he is on tour at the moment so may be unable to respond to emails/phone calls.... but i am hoping to hear from him soon.....

Thanks, Paul!! We'll risk going ahead while you and Sorch are awaiting his answer.

No-one disagrees that it is Bill's song -- the changed name fooled me into thinking it was a different song, but it was local color, is all.

I think it is what we call in my business a low-probability risk.

We're very excited that one of our tracks has been chosen for Plum. Thanks so much. Your choice is a little surprising - it's one of our "early" songs in old French, but you're very welcome to it!

We'd be grateful if you could attribute the song to Sermisy.

And here are a few words about the song:

This French chanson was first published in 1528. Written by Sermisy for voices and lute, it is somewhat of an oddity for its time because this time the guy gets the girl (no unrequited love here!). Not only that, he sings about what a fantastic figure she has. The song is performed by Touchwood - Kate Andrews (Chicky), Christina Mimmocchi (Callie) and Terry Clinton who sings and plays vihuela (Spanish Renaissance guitar). www.touchwoodweb.com

Amos, I don't mean to rehash what's already been covered here but I asked a question that did not get answered or maybe it did and I missed where the answer is. So if you don't mind, can you tell me if there is an exact description of what the liner looks like on the cds and by that I mean a picture or reproduction somewhere of just what is included in the 'finished product'? I know that everyone has included notes here in these individual threads about their recordings but what I'd like to know is just what part of that got included on the actual liner. Has someone posted a visual of the graphics with the details of the notes on the liner? I mean can we view what Michael produced? You know kind of like I get if I'm going to buy a cd online elsewhere. Has anyone even thought to do this? Is Dick handling that part of the project since sales are happening via his site? Okay, I know, that's several questions but they're all dealing with the same thing. I'm just kind of surprised that we have not been able to see a visual of the project. I can understand the difficulties of perhaps posting audio teasers or shortened clips of some of the songs on the set but it shouldn't be that complicated for someone to provide a little something to look at. This is starting to sound like a complaint and I don't mean it to sound that way. I'm just curious and I think it would help others who may be curious about this project as well.

Reggie:

The artwork files Sorcha linked to do not show exactly how things are listed, they were a rough concept that Homeless included in his prototype. We eused his artwork for the cover but MichaelR would have to tell you exactly how listings were written, unless you wait until your copy arrives which should be soon!! (Of course you have ordered a set, right?)

I'd suggest PMing Michael if you need to see the final listing copy -- he could email it to you.

Reggie -- space on the CD inserts being very limited, the track info
looks pretty much like what I posted at the top of this thread, with certain additions and corrections.

The inserts also include a brief essay from Amos about Mudcat and this project, and a briefer one from Dick Greenhaus about the DT.

I'm sure there is a way to post previews of the covers on Mudcat's picture pages, but I don't know how that's done.

Cheers,
Michael
