PERFECT TIMING-----------for Queen Elizabeth

The "COD LIVER OIL (ILE)" that Burl Ives did, pretty much is the one posted here by Joe Offer and Paul Kennedy. It was on my favorite LP of his---BURL IVES--CORONATION CONCERT.----an old Decca LP record recorded in England during those celebration festivities just about exactly 50 years ago. It was recorded in concert from a house speaker with a very inexpensive microphone by Burl himself on his own personal reel-to-reel tape recorder because Mr. Ives wanted to have it for himself. It turned out to be so good that Decca Records issued it as it stood even though it was not the best fidelity.
