Eugene Judge Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town? (192* d) RE: Which Town is MacColl's Dirty Old Town? 04 Feb 04

No doubt about it:

Written in 1946 for a Theatre workshop production, 'Landscape With Chimneys', a documentary play about Salford, Lancs.

I recall finishing off in our local session when a young man said.
"Your not packing up without playing my favourite Irish song are you?"
"What's that?"
"Dirty Old Town"

He looked a little suprised when I told him of its origins.
