Subject: RE: Recording of Golden Vanity
There is a wonderful Australian version recorded from Simon McDonald and released as a field recording in the late 1950s on 'Traditional Singers & Musicians of Victoria'. It has been reissued. I subsequently recorded his version on my 1969 LP 'Limejuice & Vinegar' (EMI then reissued on Larrikin). It has (last week) been included in my 10CD set 'Australia: Its Folk Songs & Bush Verse' (ABC Music). The tradition lives and rolls down through time.
