Jim McLean ADD: Silver Darlings (various) (97* d) RE: Lyr Req: Silver Darlings (Bob Halfin, Jim McLean) 10 Aug 19


I explained already that Bob Halfin gave me a poem he said was written by a man called Hulskramer who was dead. This was around 1964/5. I wrote the music to it and in 1971/2 I recorded Alastair McDonald singing it on my own label NEVIS Records. I wrote a spoken intro performed by Leo McQuire.
Bob worked for a publishing firm called Campbell Connelly and it had a subsidiary company called Cinephonic who then published the song. Bob, by supplying the poem, claimed a third of the song hence the credits reading, Jim McLean, Bob Halfin and Hulskramer ...... I never knew his first name.
