Mike Regenstreif Go and Dig My Grave: Recordings/Artists? (13) RE: Go and Dig My Grave: Recordings/Artists? 10 May 05

In addition to Chaim's recording with the McGarrigles, I have the following versions of Dig My Grave in my collection:

The Lomax field recording, sung by an unnamed group of men is on "Deep River of Song: Bahamas 1935 (Rounder)." This is the source for the versions by Chaim and the McGarrigles (which they've performed since the Mountain City Four days of the 1960s) and the Weavers.

The Weavers do two different renditions on the boxed set "Goodnight Irene 1949-1953 (Bear Family)."

The first rendition from "Goodnight Irene" is also included on the multi-artist boxed set "Songs for Political Action (Bear Family)."
