Tom on Comfort Origins: There Were Roses (Tommy Sands) (40) RE: 'There Were Roses' Query 23 Jul 99

Peter, Den, & Wolfgang:

Y'all are wonderful; I think the economists are going to have to come up with a new definition of "productivity." Either that or leave it to the folkies.

A favorite compliment on construction sites is "You do good work & lots of it." Here's to you.

I have a version of the song here on Green Linnet's 20th anniversary double CD album (annap--a pretty good bargain two-fer if you're still looking) sung by Robbie O'Connell with Mick Moloney, Saul Brody, & Liz Carroll backup & harmonies. From a 1985 album "There Were Roses."

What it sounds like to me: They sing of Isaac Scott from Bailey and Sean MacDonald from South Armagh. And the town mentioned later sounds like Camlen (Camlough?).

I will revisit this thread to find out what more you come up with. Thanks very much.
