Help: Paul Simon

Both Paul Simon and Bob Dylan recorded "The Bonnie Lass O Fyvie" Anyone know where I could find them?

Are you wanting an MP3 or to buy a CD with either of those on?

There's an article about Dylan here that mentions the song in question... somewhere! Perhaps it says which CD title the song is on?

Thanks Allie, I would Like to hear them one way or another. I was born in Fyvie and often sing the song. People don't beleive me when I tell them it was recorded by such eminent artists, and I have only heard snippets

Paul Simon & Art Garfunkel sing "Pretty Peggy" on their first lbum, "Wednesday Morning 3am". This is clearly a re-hash of "The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie" but I have never heard Simon do the "proper" version. Is this what you are looking for? You may find it on Emusic.com.

Dylan's version of 'Pretty Peggy-O' is on his self titled first album.

Yes, Giok,

Those are lyrics from one of the variants.

What's your point?

I think Dylan's version is closer to Pretty Peggy from Derby than Fyvie-O...buy its all the same song.

Talking of "rehash"'s.

Is anybody going to mention the source of Mr. Simon's version of "Scarborough Fair"?
