BigDaddy- The original record for which those songs were recorded was, "Shivaree!" recorded for Esoteric Records, 238 E. 26th St. New York City, in 1955. Apparently the Archive of Folk Music Records lifted only Oscar's and my songs, because Harry and Jeannie West, and Tom Paley were also on the record. The Wests' titles are, "Bury Me Beneath the Willow," and, "Ain't Gonna Work Tomorrow." Paley did, "Down the Old Plank Road," "Roll on the Ground," and, "Railroad Bill." Wests and Paley, also billed as, The Ensemble, did, "Cripple Creek," and a medly consisting of, "Bile Them Cabbage Down,", "Joe Clarke," and, "Pretty Little Willow."

All our pictures are on the back of the album...what young'uns we were then!
