Subject: RE: Wild Mountain Thyme - Why doesn't it rhyme
I think the McPeake version is 'more singable' simply because it is better known, thanks largely to the Clancy Brothers. Personally I prefer the Tannahill Weavers version, 'Braes' not 'Lassie.' (Sorry Jim, I know you weren't very impressed by their recording). However. you can't sing this version if you have never heard it, which many people haven't.
