The Badger Lyr Req: songs by Jake Thackray (66* d) RE: Looking for Jake Thackray songs 23 Apr 06


If you go onto the "The Jake Thackray Website" you will find full details of all Jake's songs. They are also organising a Jakefest in Scarborough in August.
Tamar productions of Scarborough have also produced a stage musical, Sister Josephine Strikes Back, based around some of Jake's songs with book by Ian Macmillan. I saw it in Leeds and it was absolutely hilarious - Jake would have loved it - and the stage performance is available on DVD.

Dr. Price is dead right - Jake was proud of his Yorkshire roots . He came from Leeds, where he also taught at Intake School before going Pro.

WPC Sadie Stick was written by Mike Abaslom. The Saga of W.P.C. Sadie Stick, Maclagan and Bomber Dina. He recorded it on an album in the early seventies - Hector and other Peccadillos - for Phillips, but I don't know if a CD version has been made. There are a number of Mike Absalom web sites on Google.
