Subject: RE: DTStudy: The Dark Island
In 1999 my friend martin sang a song called dark island but it was not the one i knew. I was glad to know the writers of the 2 songs. when martin heard the song on a recording from 1966 by calum kennedy he claimed that the words were written by him. this is the true story of the song, i just heard and part of the song you and i did when we were in a band together. the song martin sang years ago was writen in 1963 by stuart ross and first recorded by argow cammeron the same guy who did the waters of kilesqu and the song is part of the slow waltz was written by ian macloclin in the same year of 1963 . i am so glad i still play this song and the others in the set and it has been a great pleasure for me.
