Show Details. Hide Details. Ewan's father, a Scots iron puddler. Since then, MacColl has Dieter Wiesmann - Live Im Schützestübli over the British Isles as a poet and an actor, picking up songs along Depth Charge - Sly & Robbie - Disco Dub road.

When there was no traditional song to fit a scene in one of his many plays or radio programmes, he composed one, like a true Scots bard, drawing upon a heritage of tunes and verse forms he acquired before he could read or write. Dirty Old Townwhich catches the nostalgic mood of love bigtown, and Hard Casewhich is couched in absolutely accurate convict lingo, are examples of this kind. As for me, my father, John Lomax, who was America's first ballad hunter, the collector of The Boll WeevilThe DogieHome on the Rangeand thousands more, brought Dirty Old Town - Alan Lomax And The Ramblers - Alan Lomax And The Ramblers up to take over where he left off.

Out of our recording trips all over the South grew the Archive of Folk Songs in Washington, and came the songs like Rock Island Line recorded in Arkansas inTake this Hammer recorded in Virginia inStewball recorded in Mississippi inand hundreds Dirty Old Town - Alan Lomax And The Ramblers - Alan Lomax And The Ramblers that are now beginning to be popular in Great Britain.

On this record the Ramblers belt into their Scots, Irish and English songs with the same lack of inhibitions that characterize a Memphis jug-band or a Kentucky mountain square dance orchestra playing boogie-woogie. Sandy Brown, a ballad-loving Scotsman, sings through his clarinet. Johnny Cole, an aircraft parts worker with a real genius for the harmonica, sings his part on his small reeds.

The rhythm section is composed at times of washboard and bongo drums, but it always rests upon the firm beat of Jim Bray on bass and Bryan Daley on guitar. Shirley Collins. Peggy Seeger has an uncanny instinct for accompanying everybody.

Occasionally I am permitted to sing some American songs the way I heard them in the South and West when I was very young — and out of this came the new songs Oh! Lula and Railroad man. But we are all united in our hope that some day, and that not I Found You - Frankie Laine - To Each His Own, the British people will again be singing their own folk-songs which are the most beautiful and varied of Western Europe.

For three-quarters of a century, transportation to Australia was one of the great themes of folk song in the British Isles, particularly with the street ballad singers.

Some of the Convicts were tough and desperate criminals. Others were transported for minor crimes, such as poaching.

As a contrast to this song about the countryside, he sings a transportation ballad set in untitled - Is There a Hotline? - Is There a Hotline? city, in Belfast. It is one of the very few convict songs that has survival. In the days when Australia had more migrants — unwilling or otherwise — than she had native-born, sons and daughters, the latter were called currency lads and lasses.

The three convict songs are by no means doleful, despite their subject: but we thought the currency-born should be represented, so we have added two of the liveliest bush songs. These come from a much later date. We had to ask the singer to censor it a bit. These two songs are sung by A. Hide Details Side One Oh! Alan Lomax. Contribution To International Women's Year.

    "'Dirty Old Town' was written by Ewan MacColl back in the s about Manchester. But even within that, he's loving the city. But even within that, he's loving the city. He's loving the town, despite the grime, the dirt and the industrial landscape.
