Bob Bolton Origin: Mudgee Waltz (27) RE: Origin: Mudgee Waltz 27 Jun 13


G'day again Denis,

I see that one of the (1984) National Library of Australia tapes of John Meredith includes this content:

George and Ruth Blackman play accordion and sing / Interviewer : John Meredith Blackman, George, 1919-[ Sound : 1984 ] Keywords: Blackman, George, 1919-; Accordion music.; Folk songs, English - Australia.... George Blackman, Accordion : 1. Waltz, The Mudgee, Here I float in my golden boat, 2. First set ...

This is (?) a later generation of the Blackman family and a good 30 years later.

(I haven't had time to listen through the recording ... yet ... ) and I note the slight difference in "tune name". It may well be that memory of the tune's 'name' is subsidiary to the tune's undoubted position as the favourite waltz tune around Mudgee!

Regards,

Bob
