Nic Jones originally recorded this in the seventies, for an album for Fred Wood's magazine "Folk Routes***. " It was on one of two albums that were given away free to new subscribers. As I was already subscribing I never got the album. If you can find anyone with a copy of the album perhaps Nic gave details of his source on the sleeve.

Probably worth correcting this post even after 10 years, as the record is now a collector's item ~~ I sold my copy [which I had as I was regular columnist for the journal concerned] a few years ago for a 3-figure sum to a dealer ~~ and someone reading this might go in search of it. The journal was called Folk REVIEW***, and the record was 'The First Folk Review Album'.
