Jim Carroll discussion of A.L.Lloyd's singing (82* d) RE: discussion of A.L.Lloyd's singing 25 May 20


Vic's articles on Bert are superb - if they're not available on line I can let anybody interested have what I have
Bert's skillful knack of weaving a song introduction in with his storytelling often made for superb evenings and more than made up for his singing limitations
I was left with the impression that Bert didn't like Ballads once at a lecture on the subject he gave at Keele - I felt he 'talked their importance down' too much
I still have the recording somewhere
A magnificently memorable point in the talk was when Fred Jordan, who was there to sing an example, fell asleep in the chair and was sharply spotlit by a shaft of sunlight coming through the domed roof - a celestial nudge from above perhaps !
The photograph, by Brian Shuel appeared in the following 'Dance and Song'
Good memories
Jim
