Subject: RE: New Hamish Imlach compilation CD
Ritchie - according to one of my old song folders, the song is called Tall Tale (with my words almost identical to the copy you have above).

I saw Hamish quite a lot in the 60s (and a bit in the 70s). I really liked his playing on his version of Candyman (and similar to weelittledrummer above, that was before I heard Mississippi John Hurt do it), I heard him sing I Am A Miller To My Trade before I heard Ray Fisher do it so memorably, and I still sing Ramensky to myself sometimes.
