Waterson: Carthy: ‘Raggle-Taggle Gypsies’

So here’s a whole band: Martin Carthy, Eliza Carthy, Norma Waterson, Saul Rose, and Tim Van Eyken, singing ‘Raggle-Taggle Gypsies‘. This song exists in many versions, including ‘The Seven Yellow Gypsies’, ‘The Gypsy Laddie’, and ‘Black-Jack Davy’. This is an east Anglian version that Martin, Norma and Eliza learned from Walter Pardon.

It’s followed by their version of an old hymn, ‘Stars in My Crown‘.


P.S. Now Amazon is telling me that ‘The Moral of the Elephant‘ won’t be available on their Canadian site until July 8th. Sigh. I give up; I’ve ordered it from Amazon.co.uk.
