The Doctor Lyr Req: Tom Daniel (Batley) and Mining songs (20) RE: Lyr Req: Tom Daniel (Batley) and Mining songs 28 Sep 08

Fair Rosedale is in Songscapes, The last of the Cleveland Miners and Ring of Iron both in Forgotten Songs Remembered. As far as I know none of these songs has been recorded, certainly not on any of the CDs I have. Roy Palmer's book Poverty Knock has a section on pit life, with 13 songs, including The Pony Driver, collected from a Castleford miner, but not the version of Collier Lad that you're looking for. I'll check through the rest of my collection at some point and see what else is there.
