Thread Name: ADD: Silver Darlings (various)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Silver Darlings (Bob Halfin, Jim McLean)
Actually, where I found "Andy Hulskramer" by name
was not the "discogs" pages.

My online search pulled up,
from the 1930's yet,
some directories of copyright listings.

The song was NOT "silver darlings"
but something called "and now you know,"
don't ask me what that is;
and "Andy" or was it "Andrew" Hulskramer
was named as the author of the lyrics.
1930's, yet!

Fascinating to see how the folk-music process takes over.
It's a wonder his name is recorded anywhere,
he could have been just another of the multitude
covered by the words Anonymous or Traditional.
