Bob Davenport "Postcards Home" 1981

Moving "up country" a little, here is an interesting LP from Bob Davenport from the mid 70's. It shows a wry view of life in the great North East of England, the hard times, the wars, the army, and civilian disciplines of Durham gaol (or jail). Warning!! this has a fair bit of spoken word in the local dialect, a few minor expletives too, plus a very risque version of "Ball of Yarn" where the lady definitely takes control of the situation. Sorry no rear scan available, but I gather its similar to the front anyway..

Fantastic! One of the great English singers, and an album that hasn't been available for many years, and unlikely ever to get a CD release - a real treat.

I agree totally with grace notes. So great to see Bob on THTM. Great post (as always) gonzo!
