Subject: RE: DTStudy: The Dark Island
I used to listen to this tune on an old 78rpm my grandmother had back in the early 1960s. It was an accordion instrumental with seagulls in the background, and no lyrics. I wish I could have rescued her old records after her death, but someone just got rid of everything.

I feel it predated the 1963 version by a way simply because 78rpm was dead by them.

That's the version I hear in my head and I can hear the differences in EVERY other version I come across. I just cannot find it anywhere.
