Thread Name: Lyr Req: Anthony Riley (Fryman/Fisher)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Anthony Riley (Fryman/Fisher)
According to, Hamish Imlach sang ANTHONY RILEY on his album "The Definitive Transatlantic Collection" (1998). There, the song is attributed to "Fisher/Frieman."

There is precious little information on the Internet about this song, and there are inconsistencies. The song title might be spelled RILEY or REILLY and the poet's name might be Frieman or Fryman.

I can't find any evidence that Archie Fisher ever recorded the song himself.
