Thread Name: Where are all the black country songs?
Subject: RE: Where are all the black country songs?
I am from Dudley in the Black Country originally, now a few miles down the road in Wolverhampton. I never thought I'd see the Black Country on a thread! Wonderful. Don't forget the wonderful LP of Cecilia Costello by the BBC (from whom The Grey Cock was collected). 'The Wide Midlands' is also worth a listen. I agree that the amount and quality of collecting in our area falls well below what one would hope, historically. Steve, are you the Steve Parkes who used to do comedy and knows Dave Goode? Cheers
