Transcribed from George Taylor as recorded in 1954 by Peter Kennedy and included in Topic’s recent Voice of the People release “Good humour for the rest of the night”. There’s also a nice version where George is joined by Bob Clark on Jew’s harp. George lived in Clinch, Northumberland, hence the title.
I love its slippy rhythm, a bit like Percy Brown’s and Scan Tester’s stepdances. There a nice slight of hand in the final run in the ‘A’ part.
