I first came in contact with this recording back shortly after it was released -- omg that really dates me.
I was maybe just 10 years old. Blue grass and minstrel records were just picking up. He developed a love for folk music and released his first folk album in After achieving success with his folk show at New York's Village Vanguard in , McCurdy and his family moved to New York City, from where he went on to become one of the world's best-known folk singers.
He recorded many albums in the s and s for Elektra Records and Tradition Records , performed several times at the Newport Folk Festival , and was a well-known folk music artist throughout the s and early s, developing friendships with the younger folk set of Odetta , Bob Gibson , Erik Darling , Ramblin' Jack Elliott , and Josh White, Jr.
The melody is included in Francesco de Gregori 's "Via della poverta". By the late s, McCurdy was forced to retire with health problems. In the mid s, he and his wife Beryl moved to Nova Scotia , where he enjoyed a second career as a character actor on Canadian television.

Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. The history of this quiet but gory ballad, however, has never been ascertained. Unlike the sailor in The Dublin Murder Ballad, our murderer indicates some degree of remorse, but not until our heroine has gone down for the third time.
Here's a badman-murder ballad about a real-life killer. Hardy was sentenced to be hanged in for having wantonly killed a man whom he had accused of stealing 25 cents. Some versions of the ballad cite gambling and drinking as the cause for the crime. While we may excuse the singer for his actions and his "tipsy pride," it is difficult to rationalize the pig's obvious lack of discrimination in choosing his curb companion. This drunken ditty has been for many years a favorite student and camp song.
A favorite with Southern Negro roustabouts, Stackerlee is a gambling and murder ballad with a moral listen to the refrain.
Unlike a movie production with its moralistic code, however, our badman-hero is never brought to account for his crime. We wonder where he went after being kicked out of Heaven and being objected to in Hell. This Canadian Maritimes version of an old Scottish ballad Child 93 is not content to detail the murder of a mother but also recites a gory tale of infanticide.
Other versions tell us Lamkin was a mason who committed the crime to avenge his not being paid for work he performed. Certainly the decoration job in blood was a most artistic piece of craftsmanship. This shuddering description of wholesale murder was undoubtedly inspired by Billy Bones' lines in Stevenson's Treasure Island, Several theories exist as to the meaning of the reference "dead man's chest," with most interested parties preferring to believe it was a euphemistic designation for an island rendevous for smugglers and pirates someplace in the Caribbean Sea.
As in the case of Darlin' Cory, the heroine of this galloping banjo tune has shown her partiality for liquor and gambling men. And the singer is jealous enough to carve you or shoot you if you mess with her, despite her shortcomings. In conjunction with the honey bees, he apparently sees more in Lulu than he has told us. The cause of temperance in this country almost always has utilized song as one of its major weapons in the campaign against drink second only to the effects of drink itself.
There are those who find it almost impossible to sing such a song seriously, and who soon make it part of their own attack against the piety of the movement. Our own feeling is that any man who can still take his liquor straight after listening to this song I was born in Willow Hill, Pennsylvania, and, at time of writing, I am thirty-seven years old, married, with three children.
Since then, I have worked as a baritone in theatres and clubs including a short run in burlesque , and as a radio announcer.
