Subject: Fair Maid of Islington/Sellingers Round
Hello friends,

I've got an earworm of a particular recording I heard in the 1970's or 80's, of the tune "Sellinger's Round", with electric instruments and a rollicking bass line. I'm pretty sure Ashley Hutchings was involved. I thought it was on one of the Morris On or Albion [thingummy] Band albums, but I'm not finding it.

Searching for the tune name here, I realized that Shirley Collins sings "Fair Maid of Islington" to that tune, and there's this version , but that's not what I'm hearing in my head.

Can anyone help? Is it by someone else entirely? Or did I make it up? It's driving me crazy, because I can hear the bass line to the first part of the tune in my head, but I don't know how it goes for the second part.

Can anyone help?
