Hello, Knit_aholic. Welcome to Mudcat.

Mudcat member katlaughing mention's Roy Bailey's "Send Me Back To Georgia" is mentioned in this archived Mudcat thread from 2001:

thread.cfm?threadid=41366#596813 Lyr Req: For composed song

Here's an excerpt of that post:

" Roy Bailey is one of England's very finest singers with a voice that is both beautifully melodious and capable of expressing a broad range of emotions. For a long time he has been best known as one of the finest interpreters of contemporary topical folk song but he started his career singing traditional songs and this album reissued from 1976 is mostly traditional.

"ROY BAILEY Fuse CFCD 399 What You Do With What You've Got $18.98 15 tracks, 61 mins, essential. Roy Bailey is one of England's great musical treasures .This release is a best of collection featuring 14 tracks from various recordings made between 1975 and 1991 plus a live 1991 recording of Rolling Home. The songs featured are by some of our greatest topical songwriters including Leon Rosselson, Si Kahn, John Pole, Robb Johnson, Jack Warshaw, Fred Small and others. Roy also updates the traditional song Hard Times Of Old England. The arangements are varied ranging from the unaccompanied Patience Kershaw to a full electric band on Send Me Back To Georgia with the wonderful churning accordion of John Kirkpatrick. Other tracks feature the guitar of Martin Carthy, the hammered dulcimer of Fi Fraser and others. If you are already a Bailey fan you will have almost everything here. If you have not heard him before prepare yourself for one of the most eloquent voices in topical song. (FS) "
