For the record:
The poem by Andrew Huskramer was given to me in the late 1960s by Bob Halfin and I wrote original music for it.

It was sung for the first time by Alastair McDonald and recorded on an LP NEVR 002, NEVIS RECORDS in 1970.

I produced the LP and gave the following credits:

Silver Darlings. Halfin/Hulskramer/McLean   
Publisher Cinephonic.
It was thus registered with the PRS and MCPS.

I don't know about the LP "The World Was born in Scotland" but will on the credits.

I already explained that Bob claimed a third of the song as he came up with song ... typical Tin Pan Alley tactics.
