My Old Man’s An All Black


Is there a word to describe not being able to find something on the web even though you remember encountering it recently?

Whatever it’s called it’s afflicted me because a week or so ago when I was drawing up my list of  10 quintessential Kiwi songs I came across a video of My Old Man’s An All Black which was one of the Howard Morrison Quartet’s classics but I haven’t been able to find it again.

I wanted to post it as a Saturday bonus for NZ Music Month but the best I could come up with was this background on it from NZ History online and this from NZ Folksong which has a recording of the first few lines.
