Thomas Stern Lyr Req: The Leprechaun: 'The fairy was laughing.. (38) RE: Lyr Req: The Leprechaun: 'The fairy was laughing.. 14 May 17

RICHARD DYER-BENNET recorded the song in his first album
LUTE SINGER(1941), recorded and privately issued by Frederick C. Packard (Harvard University).
The song was re-recorded 1958 for Dyer-Bennet's own label
6000 Vol.6 "with young people in mind"
The song is included in VANGUARD compilation 2-Lp album VSD-95/96 (1977), and on CD Vanguard Classics(Omega) OVC 6007 (1991).
Smithsonian Folkways reissued Dyer-Bennet 6 on CD in 2000 SFW45053.

I also believe John McCormack recorded it, but do not see it under
that title in the discography. My vague recollection is that it was
a live recording (aircheck), possibly the AVOCA Lp or a PEARL album????? Perhaps someone with these discs handy would check.
