Dita Lyr Req: Messing About on the River (73* d) RE: Lyr Req: messing about on the river 21 Aug 03


I can do you mini discs or CDs of what I have of Josh's, seeing as your family and none of it is available.

I've got the Pye album (with Ramensky) and singles, Top Rank EPs of him solo and with the Reivers, the Attic album, and "Ding Dong Dollar"
an album of anti-polaris and republican songs. Josh is strongly featured, and is on the cover in the company of Nigel Denver and Hamish Imlach.

Jim McLean gave detailed info on who sang what on this uncredited 1962 Folkways album in a thread somewhere in Mudcat. Perhaps someone more computer literate than me can make a blue clicky. (Your mission should you chose to accept it ...........)

Get in touch

I'll be proud to give back a little of what Josh gave me.

ps I agree with your thoughts on "River", Josh was commited to his music, and the message in the songs. He also seemed to have an intuitive grasp of the link between Folk and New Country, 30 years before the world discovered Roots Music.

Tony Hatch was a means to an ends. If someone asked you to make a record for Pye you said "YES". He never recorded anything as lightweight before of after, no follow up in the same vein, as was the norm at the time.

love, John
