Subject: RE: Help: Ian and Slyvia collaborations
Does anyone know if a song entitled Regine written By Sylvia was ever recorded? I saw her perform it as a solo at an Ian & Sylvia concert at the Fillmore East of all places.Ian called it a pshycedelic Grand Ol Opry. The song is told from the point of view of one sister"poor ellen the plain one" about another sister Regine , who "lived in a dream" Ellen goes on to lament her mundane life, envious of her beautiful but irresponsible sister."She had children by two different men, and I was mother to both of them." I'm not 100% sure of the lyrics, its been over 30 years, but I never heard it again and never saw it listed on any of Ian and Sylvia"s albums.Any info would be greatly appreciated
