The following recording from c1966-67 contains George Brallisford of The Peoples Mass attempting a tune strongly resembling Dorothea.
DorothyThe Peoples Mass
00:00 / 00:39
The recording cuts off before the song is completed, but in any case it appears that Brallisford is not familiar with the words. We cannot find evidence of a song called Dorothy with this tune or lyric other than the above NSP piece. It is unclear as to whether Brallisford was trying to remember a forgotten folk tune, or whether he was working on adapting the NSP tune into a more conventional sounding song: the melody here is played over A minor, rather than the awkward G drone of the NSP (See Dorothea for more detailed information)
