Thread Name: Lyr Req: Legend of Roseberry (Vin Garbutt)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Legend of Roseberry
The Vin Garbutt Songbook has the title as "Danny Danielle". There is no cross-reference in the book as to which song came from which record. The Songbook itself features seventeen transcriptions of some of Vin's own compositions, put together by Paul Tilley. It is endorsed by Vin, as I bought it earlier this year at one of his gigs, and you can order it direct from him. With each song is an introduction by Vin, the one to this song is: "A modern tale of seduction and deception, written in a traditional style in 1971. Possibly my first awareness of women's rights, or lack of!"

Unless there is another of Vin's songs that mentions Roseberry, it is likely this is the song in question, although we'd really need scouse to come back to the thread to confirm that this was or was not the song requested.
