    Item notes: Refrain - Over the burning plains of Egypt. Roud Folk Song Index No. 7458 (Ginette Dunn's listing of Percy Webb singing this song is listed by Roud as No. 000, but the refrain makes it obvious that this is the same song as Margaret Howell's - Over the burning plains of Egypt). Performer notes: Of the Ling family of Blaxhall, Suffolk. Recording notes: Note on box - ? low batteries on record resulting in speeded up playback - if so, probably from C2 onwards
