Sandy Paton Lyr Add: Mary Hamilton (Hally Wood) (23) RE: Hally Wood's 'Mary Hamilton' 29 Feb 04

    Caroline hasn't recorded the ballad, although she would like to do so. Maybe we'll get around to it some day before our creeping antiquity gets the better of us.
    I've set Caroline to work trying to locate two things: the LP that Hally produced on her own that included her singing of the ballad, and the addres of Hally's daughter who may have some left-over sopies you could get ahold of. If there are absolutely none available, and Caroline can come up with our copy (buried among a couple thousand old LPs in our cluttered living room), we could make you a cassette of it. I have also asked her to try to remember if Hally told her anything about the source of the melody she used. Give her some time to work on these things. Send me a PM with your address, etc. We'll see what we can do.
    She's also trying to dig out our copy of the "Blood and Roses" LP to compare Peggy's melody with the one Hally gave us. It's gotta be there in the pile. I should explain: our "living room" used to be the hay mow of the remodeled barn we live in. It's a two-story 50' by 30' and we don't try to heat it in the winter (it has a separate furnace). We moved most of the old LP collection into it last fall, to make way for the CDs that are demanding more space in our current "play lists." When we moved all of that old vinyl, the carefully maintained library system in which she kept it went to hell in a breadbasket. I fear that Caroline's assignments will not be promptly completed. Sort of like Bush's Air National Guard service in 1972. (hah!)
