I Had no Laran At All is a Darkover filksong (to the tune of "Rosin the Bow"). It was recorded at Boskone 1984, and is listed as "author unknown" in SWIL Filkbook #1.
(That's because Erwin S. "Filthy Pierre" Strauss published it wiithout bothering to ask who the author was - he did that a lot. It's the same author as Arilinn Tower (i.e. me) and the correct title is "The Terranan's Lament". Judy Gerjuoy, aka Jaelle of Armida, asked me to write a song about some poor shlub who goes to Darkover, does all the usual things, but never develops laran. The SWIL misinformation has gone uncorrected for far too long.)
