I have a challenge to whoever wants it! Can anyone find me the lyrics to the song by the Collectors called "Lydia Purple"! I have been all over the net and had no success and the page that I found that said it would send them hasn't! I would appreciate it as I like the song and would like to have a copy of the lyrics! Thanks! PURPLE FAN

I can see why you're having a helluva time with this. There are little 'tickles' about it in several places, but nothing as concrete as lyrics. Still looking.

I've been looking for an answer for you as well, but have come up against several dead ends.

I hope someone here can answer this one!

pf, did you end up finding the name of the group? is it Giant Crab or The Collectors, or did you find that other name?

.. eight days 've gone by and I've found precisely zilch - this is the challenge to beat all challenges - if anyone finds these lyrics, take one humungous bow!

p.s. can I call you pf, less chance of typos!

gtho4: If you find me the lyrics you can call me anything you want!LOL LOL! Yes certainly you may call call me PF!Yes this is a great challenge but I have faith in the FT GROUP! They never give up without a Darn good fight! Surely there has to be someone out there in FT land who has heard the song or has an obscure album with the lyrics on it! I keep hoping! I just know that FT'ERS won't let me down and someone will come up with them! They have come through some other fairly hard challenges so I am 100% sure they will come through for me! Thanks for the help! It is much appreciated! PF

Just checking in to see if anyone has found anything yet! I can't believe that no one out there in FT Land can help me! Anybody know of any DJ's they could call? Maybe Sypher has heard of this song? He is a DJ!Come ON FT Team I know that you can come through for me! Thanks! PF

A couple of other trails might be Bill Henderson of Chilliwack who was on vocals for the Collectors and Giant Crab who also put out a Lydia Purple.

YOU are all terrific! One of the lines from the song goes something like this I think it is the chorus: Lydia Purple lives in a steeple , knows all about nature and nothing about people! It really is a very lovely song! I guess it wasn't that big of a hit! LOL LOL! Oh the love of the obscure? Thanks a Million to all as I have a few more leads and I just know that one of the FT Miracle Workers will come through for me! I appreciate the help and time that you have all put into this for me! PF

Here are the lyrics for Lydia the tatooed lady but I don't think that is what you are looking for. http://www.cs.nmt.edu/~jefu/lydia.html

Truth, now, PF....this is a torture thing, isn't it? Have we offended you somehow?

This is Primal Scream material!

Gunslinger: LOL LOL LOL! Oh I am so sorry that you are being tortured! Honestly all I wanted was the lyrics to this cute little song!Little did I realize that it would drive me and other people crazy trying to find it! I appreciate the help and understand how you feel! I have e-mailed complete strangers in my quest to find this song! There are now people out there who think I am a total LOONEY!!! LOL LOL! I can't believe how hard this is and I am beginning to think that they will never be found! Oh well I will keep searching! I will be the person in the RUBBER ROOM humming the song all dressed in PURPLE and banging my head against the wall! LOL LoL! Thanks for your help! I was just wondering if I could put an item in the FT News and see if anyone out there has the lyrics? Think that will help? I appreciate all of your efforts and I know that somewhere sometime one of the FT Dream Team will come through for me! PF
