Indeed a great singer he was and died not long ago.

Update: I've retrieved the vinyl of Travelling The Tees and I'll try and get it onto the computer tonight.

The sleeve notes for The Breaker's Men (last track - 7 - on side 1) say:

"A Lament (Ron Angel) For the last year or so the 'John H. Amos', last of the Tees paddle-driven steam tugs and also the last to be built on the Clyde, has been moored at the Stockton Quay - a target for vandals and souvenir hunters. Despite several suggested schemes for its preservation, neither the local authority nor the County Council wish to assume responsibility and it looks like becoming the latest victim of the 'progressives'. (The tug was named after a well-loved clerk of the Tees Conservancy Commission)."
