Lament for love and pasties

I have been digitising all my LPs over the last few months and have refound loads of stuff that is quite good. I've also found that what I passed by 50 years ago now has a greater impact. This is a good example. Cyril Tawney's voice does suit the nostalgia, especially now pretty well everything has gone. Nostalgia should be like English Mustard, something to savour that can bring a tear to your eye.

He came to our school and gave us a live performance, just him with his guitar. A number of folk songs, funny yarns, and of course, "Sally Free and Easy."

Wonderful, John. Thanks for that. I've not heard that ballad for 50 years. Used to have it on vynil, but where is it now? Anyway . . . I quite forgotten this lovely piece. So, Thank you.

I think you are right John, about what 'passed us by' 50 or more years ago. Back about 6 years ago, I happened upon a documentary on TV about Lorenze Hart, the lyricist of Rogers and Hart's work for musicals. It was a sad tale but their music was remembered by showing different artists doing R & H songs. The melodies were all known to me but they came across in a new light and it stirred my interest, even though some presentations were from singers of the '30s, with those very clipped voices from back then. I bought a Tony Bennett CD covering a lot of their songs and I love it although my wife wonders why!


JJ.

I think it might to be with just appreciating things that were automatically disregarded earlier in life.
Personally, I have been listening to an even more extensive range of music than I ever did. Ella Fitzgerald is listened to extensively these days (along with 50 year old Who tracks).
