by Paul the Stockman

I have just posted the above album on my blog.
This album will be of far greater interest to collectors of British Folk Music and it's a very good album which deserves wide circulation.
My regards and best wishes to both of you. Keep up the great work.

Danny Spooner and Friends (1978 British Folk)




















Danny Spooner originally hailed from the East End of London and started his working life as a mariner coming under the influence and guidance of the great folk singer and folklorist, Bob Roberts. He arrived in Australia in 1962 at the height of the folk revival here and became very popular as a singer of British folksongs. He is still very active in Australian folk and will be appearing at the National Folk Festival in Canberra over Easter. (It looks like it will be a great year)This is a great LP and Paul from Brisbane has done a excellent rip of it - many thanks again Paul.Danny sings and plays some guitar backing. Danny's friends in this instance were Peter Christoff on fiddle, Michael Farrell on pipes and Tin Whistle, Lis Johnston and Cris Larner also providing vocals, Richard Leach recites "Jowl and Listen", and Ian Ball reads "Coupshawholme Fair".My favourite tracks are "MacPherson's Rant" and "Baron o' Brackley".
