I have very good quality tapes of the Bellamy programs made with Mulhullan from off-air ABC-FM, as I have mentioned above.

These include:

* Four one-hour programs on Kipling - Bellamy interviewed by Mulhullan    and illustrated with cuts from the Argo records

* An interview with PB

* Concert from Sydney Opera House with PB and Shirley Collins, separately and together.

PM for details.

(Bellamy toured Australia twice, to my knowledge - the above tour with Shirley Collins, and once solo. No known recordings of the solo tour have surfaced.)]

I'd dearly love to get hold of copies of the above - I knew Peter in the UK in the 70s, and saw him for the last time in Ontario, where he sold me a copy of the 'Fair Annie' cassette. I was out of Australia at the time of the Oz recordings. Please?

Meanwhile I have FLAC versions of PB's "Maritime Suite" from the original FM airing on Folk on Two. The site from which these were obtained has now gone so effectively I have the only copies. I have offered these to Fellside Records but got no response.

Not that I'm aware of. It may be some time. Likewise the Green Linnet US LP - guess the tapes have gone.

Perhaps someone could talk to the EFDSS about "Second Wind" from 1985 - but assume that conversation has been ongoing?

(Bellamy/Kipling fans who are not aware of the four-hour FM radio program PB made about Kippers when he was Down Here in Oz in the early 80ies are advised to PM for more info and links. No ball-tampering guaranteed....)

"Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs" is a Dambuster album. Therefore, like Bellamy's Trailer album "Tell It Like It Was", it is very unlikely to appear on CD in the near future.

Well, with the apparent death of Dave Bulmer everything is possible in the not-so-near future...

To replace your vinyl? My goodness! Vinyl is the pure medium of this music (Stones in my Passway notwithstanding) - something the CD can maybe enhance by way of convenience, but never replace.

I must say, I'm still waiting for the definitive Bellamy collection. Wake the Vaulted Echoes was imperfect in all sorts of ways, but hinted at what might be possible. If only the focus was on his cultural significance to the cause of music, instead of this rather irksome Folk thing which got in the way of his genius and - ultimately, tragically - rejected and killed him.

Any news on the Maritime England Suite? I've got some corking versions but the nearest I've got to anything official is Bellamy's own appallingly edited self-bootleg. My favourite all-time Bellamy song is his setting of Kathleen Tardif's poem The Tea Clipper which actually cuts out on the Bellamy Bootleg.

Maybe the moment has passed?

Always nice to see a Bellamy thread riding high on a five-knot tide... Of course the one we're all looking forward to right now is 25-track CD of the The Young Tradition live at Oberlin College on 17th November 1968 coming up in the autumn. I confess that I'm not the biggest TYT fan in the world, but this is definitely one to drool for:

FWIW, the songs on Mr Bellamy, Mr Kipling & the Tradition originally came from the albums Keep on Kipling (Fellside FE032, 1982) and Songs an' Rummy Conjurin' Tricks (Fellside FSC 5, 1990). The title for the latter (his last completed and released album) is taken from a line in "Cholera Camp". Some additional tracks are also included:

Our Fathers of Old
Way Through the Woods
Sir Richard's Song
Brookland Road

It should be pointed out for such abroad &c who might not get the reference, that the title of that album was a play on a well-known UK advertising slogan of the time for Mr Kipling's Cakes, "Mr Kipling makes exceedingly good cakes": a slogan obviously expressed in faux-simple terms to give a period feel back to the great days of Empire, of which the brand name itself was presumably supposed also to be redolent.

I got an e-mail from somebody seeking a 1989 Peter Bellamy album titled Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs.

There are several Bellamy albums available on Spotify, and I think I have a couple Bellamy recordings of his arrangements of Kipling poems, but that name doesn't sound familiar.

One is a 2012 album titled "Peter Bellamy Sings the Barrack-Room Ballads of Rudyard Kipling" - I don't know what albums these are drawn from. The other is a 2001 album titled "Mr. Bellamy, Mr. Kipling, & the Tradition." It includes two complete earlier albums, "Keep On Kipling" and "Songs an' Rummy Conjurin' Tricks."

This link might help: http://www.slipcue.com/music/international/celtic/artists/bellamy.html

Also look at this one from Mudcatter Reinhard Zierke:
http://mainlynorfolk.info/peter.bellamy/records/rudyardkiplingmadeexceedinglygoodsongs.html

Also see Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Bellamy

No definite info on Exceedingly Good Songs, but it's a start.

So, back to the original question: Is Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs available on CD or MP3??

Keep On Kipling is mostly an ensemble (trio) work and has definite feel to it from start to finish. I've no objection to the extra songs as extras after the album sequence but they don't have the same feel as the album tracks and to mix them seems to me just plain wrong somehow. And who has time to re-programme their CD player? Which ain't much use in the car.

I must add, this is a minor gripe over what is an excellent package. If you only own one PB CD, then this has to be it.

According to several stories I've read here, Bellamy seems to have used the line of the best thing he'd ever done for any album sold to any punter.

So why is the programming order on the original Keep on Kipling album perfect and the addition of further tracks a "hatchet job"? Just because it hasn't been done by God, er, Bellamy himself? I think this term is grossly inappropriate and unfair. It might have been a proper assessment if the remastering had been poorly done, but sheesh, just for adding some tracks? Why don't you just program your CD player to play the LP tracks in their original order and ignore the extra tracks?

I, for one, am very happy to have all these songs in excellent quality now.

I saw MIOG in HMV the other day for £15. Amazon are doing them for under a tenner. CAMSCO don't have it listed. Neither of the new editions have any additional material to prod the cash-strapped punter into purchase. I've mixed feelings about additional material anyway, but the Fellside reissue of Keep on Kipling was a hatchet job interpersing the original perfect album sequence with re-recordings of several of the Puck Songs; improved, perhaps, but hardly part of the sequence of what remains the finest of Bellamy's Kipling albums. He certainly he thought so. I won my vinyl copy off him at a raffle and asked him to make the choice. He handed me the deluxe vinyl edition of KOK and said it was the best thing he'd ever done, and I have to agree - although the dark chthonic allure of MIOG will never be matched in terms of ritual atmos and genuine chill. I've got one of PB's old self-bootlegged cassette editions on prominent display as a small object of veneration...

Some info

The Fair Annie cassette has now been released as part of a double CD of recordings by Peter Bellamy. This was originally a limited-edition cassette, which has long been a favourite of mine.

Track list here

Fair Annie was also on the cassette 'Fair Annie' - not surprising, I suppose.

Yes, when I met Peter in Luxembourg, he also played blues. I was trying to accompany on blues harp, but he strayed too far from 12 bar and I got lost!

FAIR ANNIE

    Comb back your hair, Fair Annie, he said
    Comb it back into your crown
    For you must live a maiden's life
    When I bring my new bride home.

    Oh, how can I look maidenlike
    When maiden I am none?
    For six fair sons have I had by you
    And a seventh coming on?

    Oh, you will bake my bread, he said,
    And you will keep my home
    And you will welcome my lady gay
    When I bring my bridal home.

    And on the door he hung a silken towel
    Hung by a silver pin
    That Fair Annie, she might wipe her eyes
    As she went out and in.

    Now, six months gone, and nine comin' on
    And she thought the time o'er-long
    So she's taken a spyglass all in her hand
    And up to the tower she has run.

    She has look-ed east, she has look-ed west
    She has looked all under the sun,
    And who should she see but Lord Thomas
    All a-bringin' of his bridal home.

    So she has called for her seven sons
    By one, by two, by three
    And she has said to her eldest son
    Oh, come tell me what you see.

    So he's look-ed east, he has look-ed west,
    He has looked all under the sun
    And who should he see but his father dear,
    He was bringin' of his new bride home.

    So it's, Shall I dress in green? she said,
    Or shall I dress in black?
    Or shall I go down to the ragin' main
    And send my soul to wrack?

    Oh, you need not dress in green, he said,
    Nor you need not dress in black
    But throw you wide the great hall door
    And welcome my father back.

    So it's Welcome home, Lord Thomas, she said,
    And You're welcome unto me.
    And welcome, welcome, your merry men all
    That you've brought across the sea.

    And she's serv-ed them with the best of the wine;
    Yes, she's serv-ed them all 'round
    But she's drunk water from the well
    For to keep her spirits down.

    And she's wait-ed upon them all the livelong day,
    And she thought the time o'er-long.
    And she's taken her flute all in her hand
    And up to her bower she has run.

    She has fluted east, she has fluted west,
    She has fluted loud and shrill.
    She wished that her sons were seven greyhounds
    And her a wolf on the hill.

    Then, Come downstairs, the new bride said,
    Oh, come down the stairs to me.
    And tell me the name of your father dear,
    And I'll tell mine to thee.

    Well, King Douglas,it was my father's name
    And Queen Chatryn was my mother
    And Sweet Mary, she was my sister dear
    And Prince Henry was my brother.

    If King Douglas, it is your father's name
    And Queen Chatryn is your mother
    Then I'm sure that I'm your sister dear
    As Prince Henry, he is your brother.

    And I have seven ships out on the sea
    They are loaded to the brim
    And six of them will I give to you
    And one more to carry me home.

    Yes, six of them will I give to you
    When we've had Lord Thomas burned!

As sung by Peter Bellamy on Wake the Vaulted Echoes

I have some of the original YT recordings on vinyl + Transports at the usual inexpensive rates for those into vinyl or collecting. Jenny Bellamy is a lovely lady and can often be found singing carols at Dungworth.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Black Gate of Newcastle's castle in 1971, with Stefan & Liz Sobel. Peter came & stayed there as well for a week.
Great times. Relaxing at " home " he always preferred playing blues, and accompanying himself quite expertly on guitar. On his last day with us, he let me record a song he wrote called the "Valley of the Stookie" concerning his experiences finding archeological artifacts like Roman coins, and Saxon bones on his family's farm.   
Did he ever record this anywhere else ?? Riggy

There were actually 4 YT LPs - though the Xmas album waited years and eventually came out on CD - plus an EP and a single

I produced Second Wind - a delightful project in which to be involed: so far as I know there are no plans to issue it on CD and last time I checked the master tapes were missing.

Leaves in the woodland, eh ? nice to see it on the new June Tabor best of....version on new set is a stunning arrangement by Grace Notes

Just so's you know - the remastered, boxed double CD Silver Anniversary edition of Peter Bellamy's Transports will be released by Free Reed in the next couple of months. Aside from the remaster of the original album it contains a second CD of new and classic recordings of the songs by a whole host of friends and famous folkies. There is also an extensive book which deals with the history of The Transports album and also with the historical events surrounding it
