Uke Obit: Ruth Park, author,1917-2010 (8) RE: Obit: Ruth Park, author,1917-2010 21 Dec 10


Just another piece of info about 'Bright fine gold'.

The first recorded version was released as 'Tuapeka gold' in 1958, only a year after Ruth Park's novel was published, on an EP by Neil Colquhoun's Song Spinners group: Songs of the Gold Diggings (Kiwi M31-2). It's actually a very nice version, a solo number for Lorna McLeod with guitar backing.

The text is the chorus, and the first and third verses, from the 1972 Song of a Young Country book.
