Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cod Liver Oil
Subject: RE: Cod Liver Oil
The Derry and Cumberland boys was written by Adam McNaughtan, as was the Jeely Peice song.

Hamish Henderson was indeed the composer of Men of Knoydart, which appeared on Hamish's first album along with Cod liver oil, Derry and Cumberland boys and of course, Black is the Colour. The cover of this one was predominatly white with a small b&w photo of Hamish.

The 37 Bus and the police song (?the beat song), came from Both sides of........(Another folkie had released an album called Another side of....).Both albums were on the Xtra label.

Dundee Ghost by Matt McGinn.

Could the tenement song be either Adam McNaughtan's - Where is the Glasgow, and/or the reply by Jim McLean - The Glasgow that I used to Know. Ian Mac used to sing them one after the other.

Hope this helps,

love, john.
