GUEST,John from "Elsie`s Band" Origins: Buttercup Joe - how old is this song? (27) RE: Origins: Buttercup Joe - how old is this song? 27 Jul 09


Barbara & Artful Codger,
                         Having just come across this thread I must tell you that I wrote the version to which you refer, that of Michael Cooney. As a child I had a copy of the ZONOPHONE record from my grandmother but, as so many things in this life, it just got lost. I revived the song, based on what I could remember, for our group, "FOUR SQUARE CIRCLE" in the middle to late 60`s. Dave Andrews of Clacton, Essex has a copy of the Cooney recording making reference to him hearing it in S.London, most probably us in "The Old Tigers Head", Lee Green./
