Small blurb in "Folk Scene" of September 1965, which cost a whole 1s 9d old money [about 10 new pence] Harvey Andrews fell into a canal in Birmingham and made all the evening papers. Come on then Harvey, what's it all about then??

Good grief!!How the past returns to haunt you!
A mate and I decided it would make a good holiday to cycle the towpath of the local canal out of Brum and into the countryside. The towpath had crumbled and I hit the hole first and went in. The silt at the bootom held me as I was in a kneeling position so I stuck my arm up and my mate saw it and pulled me out. It was a slack newsday, but indicative of how mainstream folk was at the time because I was only a floor singer at the Jug O Punch in Brum and had just made my first E.P with Martin Carthy. This is the most obscure event I have yet had to return to in my life.

Look at it this way - if the water had been a bit deeper, you might have gotten a bigger headline and a longer article - and we wouldn't be asking for details!

Yes there's also a piece about said EP as well, a review by somebody named only as D.M.[Dave Moran?] I won't reproduce it here, obviously the man has no taste.

Please can you tell me what the story behind this song is and where can I get a copy. We used it during a drama project at school and I have never ever forgotten it since. You kindly led me to a copy of the lyrics and now I have them I want to hear it even more ! It has been following me around for 19 years now and I still love it.
