Footnotes to Bonnie Wee Lassie

Late in 1963, Joni wrote out a list of 28 songs in her repertoire- of which this was one. All were presumably considered for performing at the 1963 'early' session in Saskatoon (released on Archive Series 1) although this one was not recorded.

Jeannie Robertson sang The Bonnie Wee Lassie Who Never Said No to Peter Kennedy and Alan Lomax in her home in Aberdeen in 1953. This recording was included on the anthology Songs of Seduction (The Folk Songs of Britain Volume 2; Caedmon 1961; Topic 1968). Burl Ives also recorded it.
