Santa Origins: The lad with his trousers on (13) RE: Origins: The lad with his trousers on 03 Jan 08


The last line of Jackie Tar bounces along to the tune in the Winterset piece, but the sentiment has reversed.

As I recall, the sleeve notes say that the fragments were found whilst browsing in Peter Woods' library, but are ambiguous about how much was found. The set includes part of The Weary Cutters, which certainly is known in fuller versions, but I don't recognise "I'll sit upon the pier 'til the tide comes in", "Up to smoky Shields, handy for bonnie Newcastle" or the title piece "Blue's gone out of the fashion, red's come in with the new, I'll have a sailor laddie and dye my apron blue."
