pastorpest Essential Robbie Burns (67* d) RE: Essential Robbie Burns 06 Jan 01


I would add "Parcel of Rogues" to the list of songs. Also I am with little john cameron on Burns' name. Ian McIntyre's carefully rsearched biography of Burns "Dirt and Diety" begins with these wrods: "The entry in the Ayr parish register is the briefest: `Robert Burns, lawful son to William Burns, in Alloway, and Agnes Brown, his spouse, was born January 25, 1759; bapd. 26, by William Dalrymple. Witnesses: John Tennant and Jas. Young.'" I have never heard Burns referred to as "Robin" either.
