Subject: new CD by Roy Harris--gotta hear this !
People, this is simply great singing. The CD is called Roy Harris--Live At The Lion. Masterful a capella ballad singing with an audience that sounds unbelievable---simply fantastic!! You who love British traditional music---songs with great choruses---have got to secure this one. Roy is an old friend from when we were both on the staff at Pinewoods Folk Camp in Massachusetts a bunch of years ago. After that we had him do a great concert for Aural Tradition (the organization) in Chicago. Pardon my blatant plug of this recording but I've not been this excited about a CD in a long time.
This was recorded live in 1997 at the White Lion folk club in Wherwell. (No matter that I don't know where that is.) It's on Wild Goose Records---Wherwell---Hampshire---SP11 7JS I wish I had more information for you, but I don't. Not even sure if this is the entire address. But I wanted to let y'all know how I feel while I'm still in the spell of it. I will e-mail Roy for a better way to contact these good folks.

As many Mudcatters know, there was a Roy Harris day celebration in Nottingham recently. The man has had a glorious life in the trad music community of Britain over the last half of this century. I'm so happy that Roy put this one out that I could yell. Matter of fact, that's just what I'm doing!!!!!!

Enjoy,
