Ian Hendrie Lyr Req: Coal Bargee (Chris Cheetham) (36) RE: Lyr Req: Song from BBC1 Ballad of the North West 25 Jan 12

Thanks Mark,

Those Tamlyn magazines will come in very handy. I have one or two myself and they are reminders of my youth. The admission prices to concerts and festivals seen like loose change now.

It's a coincidence that Gary and Vera Aspey appeared on the cover of the June 1975 issue which contained the requested song as I was going to see them performing at the next meeting of Porkies Folk Club in Poynton, Cheshire, until a visit to family will prevent it. I won't bother calculating the number of years between the two.

I am transcribing the info from the article accompanying the Coal Bargee song by Chris Cheetham and hope to include it along side the song on my web-site. I would contact Chris via his FaceBook page to seek permission but I have an aversion to FaceBook and similar sites at present (being a grumpy untrusting old man) and so can't do so. If anyone knows how to contact him that would be helpful.

If you come across The Big Ditch recording that would be fantastic.

I'm off to investigate those old magazines now. Thanks for putting them on-line.
