Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Parody of Greensleeves
just found this thread ...


My c.1965 LP copy of "The Twiliters in Concert" (RCA Camden 117) has this song on it (the only version I ever knew) and it is credited to : "Maguire, Ferris and White", i.e. The Twiliters!!

Other songs are labelled "ARR. maguire, ferris and white", so I have no reason to doubt this info - well, that and the fact that they are West Aussie boys!!! (yes, my birthplace!!)

They were around in the early 60s, very entertaining, popular also in Sydney and made two albums (that I know of - and both of which I have) and their names were :
Jim Maguire (think he may be a psychologist or something now),
Greg Ferris (deceased) and
Kerry White (not sure about him).
Hans Stampfer was an earlier original member too, when my eldest Bro in Perth knew them in the late 50s/early 60s, probably hanging out in a "Coffee Lounge" called "The Quitapena?" ...

Murray Jennings - the WA folkie / ABC announcer / and bloke wot writ the sleeve notes - would be able to clear up any confusion - if anyone knew where he was!!??

Cheers! R-J
