GUEST Lyr Add: The Shores of Normandy (Jim Radford) (78* d) RE: Lyr Add: The Shores of Normandy (Jim Radford) 06 May 19

For all those who complained that they couldn't find 'The Shores of Normandy' on a CD by Jim Radford; that's because Jim has never recorded a professional CD of his songs, though he does have a few copies of compilations put together by his Folk Club down in South London (Folk Mob in Eltham). There is also a compilation CD jointly published by the St John's (School) History Society and the Normandy Veterans' Association in 2004 which has a number of tracks by Jim (including Shores of Normandy) but this was never distributed by a music publisher and is hard to find nowadays. However, there is good news for those who wanted to download a copy of the song as it has just been professionally recorded with backing music (as it was sung at the BBC's Albert Hall concert in 2014, although Jim normally sings acapella) in preparation for the D-Day 75th anniversary events. Jim will be performing live at the unveiling of a memorial in Arromanches on 6 June 2019 and the new recording will probably be available for download from a commecrial site (not sure which one) shortly afterwards.
