Jim McLean Info: Ding Dong Dollar (58* d) RE: Info: Ding Dong Dollar 17 May 20


Jack O'Connor was a good friend of mine. He was a Trade Union official in Glasgow and went to London around 1964 again as a union man for ACTT. He was never a "folkie" but loved the company and songs. He was the first to record Freedom Come All Ye for the DDD LP although I heard him, Nigel Denver and Josh MacRae all singing the song when Hamish Henderson wrote it in 1960.
I think he died around 1970, we met up in London a lot but after I married and had children we drifted a bit as Jackie's main entertainment was the pub.
He features on the front of the Ding Dong Dollar sleeve, with a bow tie, next to me, on the top row.
