Bob Bolton Lyr Req: Vicar is a Beatnik (Sydney Carter) (11) RE: Lyr Req: Vicar is a Beatnik (Sydney Carter) 12 Dec 12

G'day all 'Catters that need their reading glasses ...

I bought all the early Sydney Carter books ... after hearing him at the 1972 (Ausralian) National Folk Festival ... Easter 1972 - and thenin Sydney, the next week,

The first ( .. three ...) books are full of his great songs ... but lyrics are in rather cramped 7-point type.

The latest one I bought (Book #4 or # 5 ... ?) was put out in the same book size by the new owners of Stainer & Bell ... but the lyrics are set (printed) in 5-point type ... that's about one quarter of the area ( - or half the height - ) of a comfortable reading type for anybody ... other than myopic bats!!!

There are more good songs in there ... but you might have to photocopy them at 2 to 3 X magnification ... before you know what you are singing!
