Dear Butcher asked

...who is Black Jack Davy?

I wish I had a video I could embed here to explain. Instead I'm sending you over to this site to listen to Steeleye Span's version.

I'm not a fan of Bob Dylan's version, but that's just me. I prefer the creepier tones of Maddy Prior.

And why is Black Jack Davy on that sidebar over there? Because he's good hero. And his lover is a heroine who runs away from her responsibilities. Sorta like what I do when I'm blogging.

I went where you directed and I really really like their music. I played clips from quite a few of their songs. I'm going to have to look for them.
Thank You!!!

Try to get the album that has Long Lankin on it. I think it's Commoner's Crown. Truly freaky song. Gave me nightmares once. But beautiful too.

Steeleye Span and Pentangle are quite possibly my two favorite groups. They make my husband nuts though. Oh well, I don't do punk, grunge, or rap. Our musical tastes are miles apart.
