Thread Name: Lyr Req: I Am a Rover (MacColl)
Subject: RE: lyr.requ. I`am a rover, MacColl
G'day Susanne,

I was also aware of that ... and I admit that I wrote recently with the perspective of having just read Peggy Seeger's site's version (having just bought the Complete Ewan MacColl Songbook from her site)! I realise that many aspects of Joan Littlewood's reminiscences are irreconcilable with Peggy Seeger's ... and have to accept that I'm not ever likely to know all the "real" details.

(Erk ... I just read Joe Offer's note above - Perhaps I should have followed that path for the book, not Peggy's link, to buy online. Perhaps that would not have converted the book's US$18 price to Australian$68 [= US$52.50 ... plus airfreight] ..., at least, given part of the rake-off back to Mudcat!)

Regards,

Bob
