Two songs from Frankie Armstrong. The first is the Ballad of Erica Levine by Bob Blue, and the second, I’m Gonna be an Engineer by Peggy Seeger. Frankie was singing traditional folk songs in the UK in the 60’s and 70’s, just when I was listening, but somehow I missed her back then, and just discovered her work via You Tube yesterday. The songs I have chosen are not typical of her output, but they seemed appropriate for Mother’s Day.
… and perhaps they are even more appropriate for the 50th anniversary of the contraceptive pill.
