The thread asking for lyrics to Unicorns (THE version!) includes a message from the author himself, Bill Caddick;

which announces a new retrospective CD and web site.

Bill is simply one of the finest songwriters of the UK folk world; for a small sample of his output search the database for Caddick. He's also a damn fine performer. Look out for him, and encourage him back here.

And he does a fine job parodying his "John of Dreams" on a Les Barker recording (It comes out "Custard Creams")

Bill's website address is now www.billcaddick.com. he is not fond of the t'internet but I run his facebook fan page and try to keep things updated on his behalf so if you need to contact him with a question facebook is a very good place to start as I'm on it rather a lot

best wishes

Bill can also be found playing (and singing during dances!) with All Blacked Up, which was a lovely surprise ...
