Sandy Paton Dick Turpin: is he famous in the USA? (36) RE: DICK TURPIN_is he famous in the USA? 13 Jun 06


"My Bonnie Black Bess" is on Lawrence Older's Folk-Legacy CD - CD-15. I first learned of Turpin from hearing Ewan MacColl sing "O Rare Turpin Hero." Later heard our own "Burl" sing it. Turpin probably "robbed from the rich and gave to the poor" about as much as Jesse James did, but it makes a nice bit of folklore, eh?
