Paul Reade Lyr Req: Mild and Bitter Days (6) RE: Lyr Req: Mild and Bitter Days 09 Oct 12

I got the lyrics, and I think the score as well, from Barry in the 1960s / 70s - Al Lawrence and I used to sing it. I think it's storeed somewhere in the house with all my old stuff and I'll dig it out.

It was recorded by Redmayne, who included mates of Barry's such as John Cartain and Graham Walker, and were were also often to be found in the Church Inn.

I occasionally sing another of his songs - "Vera", about an innocent young Salford lad dragged into the back of a Transit van by the eponymous lady.

Incidentally, there's another folk club now in the old upstairs room at the Church - see

Guest (Barry's son) - hope he's well. Please give Barry my regards - long time no see from Paul Reade.
