Over the Hills and Far Away

Something for the weekend.  Over the Hills and Far Away sung by actor and singer John Tams.  Tams played Rifleman Hagman in the Sharpe’s Rifle series.

  1. Mighty broad-minded for an old Americanist like you to stand up for the boys in Red, Don. 🙂

    I love that song from Sharpe, both in this more folk version and in the wonderfully late 80s electric guitar version.

    Very cool, Don. By the way, I’m reading the Sharpe series (curring Sharpe’s Honor) and enjoying it immensely. What is your opinion of the BBC series?

    I really enjoyed the series Mike, except a bizarre episode, Sharpe’s Gold, where Sharpe and his men were fighting against some sort of death cult wearing the armor of Spanish conquistadores.

    Darwin, I’ll excuse my lapse as a tribute to my great Uncle Bill Barry who served in the Royal Army from 1939-45 (Of course he did say that he signed up because “Someone has to show the Limies how to fight!”.)
