Thread Name: seek recording: Bert Lloyd & Peter Kennedy 1951
Subject: RE: seek recording: Bert Lloyd & Peter Kennedy 1951
The original list of 23 tracks is clearly ascribed by Kennedy to Bert. A number of these songs were definitely in his repertoire in 1951 - the Lomax archive and BBC recordings [and recorded later the 78rpm's].

Many of the others [e.g. Robin Hood ballads] appear on Riverside in the mid-1950's. They are listed above as recorded by Kennedy in 1951. As far as I am aware, this is the only reference to Bert having such a broad repertoire at this earlier date. I'm sceptical - are these unique performances of these songs, or has Kennedy misrepresented the later recordings?
