Week 39: The dark-eyed sailor, Sweet Jenny of the moor

For the final week of the Yellow album, here are two nineteenth-century “broken token” ballads.

The dark-eyed sailor: learnt from Tony Rose’s recording, recast in a fairly definite 3/4 and with instrumentation, frankly, out the wazoo.

Sweet Jenny of the Moor
: also learnt from Tony Rose’s recording, and played exactly as he played it, only without some of the good bits.
