Thread Name: Where are all the black country songs?
Subject: RE: Where are all the black country songs?
'Brave Dudley Boys' mentioned above is an interesting one. Great tune [modal?]the lyric rhymes 'join' with 'combine' which has the ring of authenticity, as does the reference to the Ward family and there were food riots in the area round about the 1830's, but I wonder whether it was written for the LP. Anyone know the provenance ?
