The World Turned Upside Down - The DIggers - Leon Rosselson

In 1649 to St. George's hill they came... This song has been covered
and sung by many many protest signers al over the world. At last a
version on youtube by the man who wrote it. Covered by Billy Bragg,
Dick Gaughan and many others (including about six covers on here) this
tale of WInstanley and his peaceful protest cruelly put down hundreds
of years ago is a socailist anthem. This rare concert footage of Leon
Rosselson was recorded in Edinburgh in October 2007. This hugely
powerful song is also on his album Rosselsongs available from his
website Leon kindly allowed us to record this
performance and this contains an intro about the 350th anniverary of
that event.
