beachcomber Burl Ives the musician (instrumentalist)? (46) RE: Burl Ives the musician ? 31 May 19


Just how far back does the song "Widdiecombe Fair" date ? that Ives had an alternative lyric, or did he just insert the name of some character known to him, maybe ?

In similar vein, I have a memory of a BURL IVES Hour (or maybe half hour or even a quarter hour) on Radio Luxemburg way back in the nineteen fifties when a record (?) of him singing hymns with a chorus of Korean (?) children was played, I particularly remember one that must have been called GOLDEN BELLS (when they ring those...) It was very beautiful. I have often searched, in vain, for it.
