GUEST,Pete Peterson Line from 'Henry Lee' (Young Hunting) (60* d) RE: Line from 'Henry Lee' (Young Hunting) 13 Jul 04


SOme of us are going to be at the "Harry Smith Memorial Festival" in Greenfield MA this weekend (starting Friday July 16 2004) and we'll sing through a LOT of soings in the Anthology. See if we come up with a consensus on this one. . . always liked Smith's explanation of why Henry Lee is the FIRST song. . . "it was the lowest-numbered Child ballad which I included, so it had to go first." (Nobody has mentioned the womens' trio of this on the Folkways "Berkeley Farms" record from the early 1970s, which was great!)
