Alex Glasgow - Northern Drift & Joe Lives My CD of Northern Drift and Joe Lives! arrived this morning - many thanks for the speedy service, it's much appreciated. Many years ago I had a LP version of Joe Lives! and really enjoyed John Woodvine's performance. Sadly, somewhere along the way in various house moves and de-clutterings it went astray and I thought it was gone for good. I had not been able to find a new copy in any format anywhere. But just the other day I was prompted to do a new Google search for John Woodvine and Joe Lives! and found your firm and all your marvellous material, and there it was, hence my order. I am very pleased to have a fresh new copy of Joe Lives! It's playing now as I type this message. I'm trying not to sing along too loud... As an expat-Geordie I'll be coming back for more of your recordings. Best regards Alan T

The Owen Brannigan Story DVD Sir, 79years, ex-geordie, ex GP, may I say how much I enjoyed your DVD about Owen Brannigan. The accompanist interviewed was superb. But why no mention of Ernest Lush? Their "Friday Night" recitals were superb. Clever, witty, superbly professional, etc. Regards, James B

Gan Te The Kye

Gan te the kye wi' me, me love
Gan te the kye wi' me,
Over the moor and through the grove,
I'll sing ditties to thee.

Cushie thy pet is lowing, round thy firstlings shed,
Tears in her eyes are flowing, because little Colly lies dead.

All our fine herd of cattle, thy vigilant sire possessed,
After his fall in battle, by rebel chieftain possessed.

Kine is now all our property, left by thy father's will,
Yet if we watch it properly, we may win gear enough still.
Gan te the kye wi' me, me love,
Gan te the kye wi' me,
Oh! Gan te the kye wi' me, me love,
And aa'll be merry wi' ye.

Was she not worthy o' kisses, and was she not worthy o' three
Was she not worthy o' kisses, that gaed te the kye wi' me.

Bonny lass, Aa love ye weel, bonny lad, Aa love ye better,
Will ye cast off yer hose and shoon, carry me ower the watter?

Aa have a hoose and kye, and yowes ayont the waal,
And Aa have a lass te bring hyeme, that pleases me best of aal.

And if there be a bit bairn through love between me and ye,
Aa have a canny aad mother, te dandle him on her knee.
