Thread Name: Cyril Tawney Cassettes Available in U.S
Subject: Cyril Tawney Cassettes Avasilable in U.S
If I weren't as impressed by Cyril Tawney as I am, I guess I'd consider this a crass commercial announcement.

All eight of Cyril's cassettes--Sally Free and Easy, Down the Hatch, In the Naval Spirit, Man of Honour, Round the Buoy,Little Boy Billee, Seamen Bold and Sailor's Delight are now available from CAMSCO Music, I'm proud to say.

They're English imports, which, between taxes and shipping, makes them higher-priced than US cassettes: they sell for $12 (US) apiece.

If you're at all familiar with Cyril's work, there nothing for me to say. If you're new here, Mr. Tawney is a fine, fine singer who has composed such gems as Grey Funnel Line, Sally Free and Easy, Sammy's Bar, The Oggy Man, Diesel and Shale, FIve Foot Flirt and a frighteningly long list of others. He was (and is) a fine singer, and was clearly one of the Most influential figures of the English Revival of the 60s.

He has no CDs as yet (I'm working on that).
