G'day Leadfingers,

I must admit I can hear that variant in my mind ... but I couldn't see it written down in any of the printed versions. I certainly crossed my mind that Konrad might well be after a version of the Manchester Rambler.

Susanne (skw): I specifically remember Ewan commenting on the fact that his parents had sung traditional songs, as a sort of "party piece" at family gatherings, because it came up during a Master Class he and Peggy Seeger presented in Sydney ... back in the '80s ... then he repeated the story at a concert that night.
