Gorgeous Gary TUNE REQ: Alfred/Alferd Packer (8) RE: TUNE REQ: Alfred/Alferd Packer 13 Jan 10


Does anybody have a proper credit for the version of "Ballad of Alfred Packer" that's in the DT?

It doesn't appear to be Phil Ochs, as implied above--a Google search pulled up very different lyrics associated with Ochs.

I'm working on putting together a limited-edition CD for an upcoming filk convention, and one of the tracks we want to put on it features one of our guests covering the version that's in the DT. And, since we're honest folks, we want to give credit (and royalties, if applicable) where they're due.

Thanks,
Gary
