A lively round sung by Peter, Paul and Mary. If you’re curious what the song is referring to, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soul_cake
Why the Swedish subtitles? I dunno.

Monday morning, Peter, Paul, and the always rarin’-to-sing Mary Travers with a Dylan favorite. Their level of musicianship and commitment to a song was just wonderful. Mary Travers’ parents were journalists and union organizers for the Newspaper Guild.
I once had the pleasure of driving Mary in my cab! It was sometime in the late seventies and she was going to visit her daughter in Manhattan. She was quite a down to earth person.

The other day on the street, I could swear I heard someone call out “Jimmy McGregor,” and so I immediately thought of this song, which I hadn’t heard in years. One of the most interesting songs lyrically and musically on a Peter, Paul, and Mary album; it’s sung and written by “Paul,” that is, Noel Stookey.
In glorious vinyl, complete with comforting scratches at regular intervals.

Nobody sings with more conviction than Mary Travers.
Thanks to YouTuber TheTumtrah and my 16-year-old, long-haired, guitar-playing camp counselor who taught me that song.
The once popular radio and television comedian Jack Benny welcomes some unlikely guests to his TV show, the folk singers Peter, Paul and Mary. They prove that you can make a folk song out of anything—even stingy Jack’s home town of Waukegan.
