Help! I'm after a copy of 'Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs'.

I've looked in all the obvious places...

If anyone knows where I can find one, vinyl, CD or digital, I'd be exceedingly grateful.

Amazon, though none are currently available from this seller: Amazon

Other than that I'm not finding much

Likewise I saw one vinyl copy on ebay years ago and bid over £100 for it only to be sniped at the last hurdle - think it went for about £120.
An incredibly nice guy on Mudcat helped me out with this though - so someone out there may be able to do the same.

I have an mp3'd copy if you want it sooner. Email me at the support email address on this_page.

It collected PB LPs back in the pre-digital days. I really wanted Barrack Room Ballads and got a copy from the US - it's on Green Linnet. I went to the bank and bought some dollar bills - about $5 IIRC - and posted them off. It arrived by post a few weeks later.

Peter used to make homemade tapes of his records and take them to folk clubs. Did he do this one? I wouldn't mind a copy myself, but I wouldn't pay £120 for a record.

Feel free to email me - see my recent post. I transferred all my PB LPs and cassette tapes to CDs years ago, and made mp3s at the same time. The quality is not great - hard disks were expensive then. Some have since appeared on CD - but not this one AFAIK.

Wow! The kindness of strangers knows no bounds: I've been deluged with offers and mp3s. To all of you - bless you!

I've just found a listing on the Discogs website for another of Peter's self-released cassettes entitled '1974/7', out in 1977. If anyone knows more, or indeed has it, I'd really appreciate hearing from you.

According to the Discogs website, '1974/7' is a private re-issue of the American album 'Peter Bellamy' with two additional tracks from 'The Tale of Ale' and two tracks from 'The First Folk Review Record'. All tracks are available on CD from Fellside and Free Reed.

I'd love to have that. I'd be very grateful if you could email me at the support address on my Mudcat_addon page.

And if anyone else wants mp3s of Kipling Made Exeedingly Good Songs, do email me at the same address.

Co-incidentally, one LP I never found, back in the 80s when I was collecting PB was Mainly Norfolk. But I probably have most of the songs on CD by now.

Apols, I was "Guest" with the "Soldiers Three" cassette. Was accessing from remote machine, and didn't realise I wasn't logged in. Will follow up ASAP.

PS Port Fairy Folk Festival was super - especially The Young'uns....

DaveRo,

"Mainly Norfolk" was officially re-issued complete on the Fellside 2-CD set "Fair England's Shore" (2008), along with the other Xtra LP "Fair England's Shore" and the Topic LP "The Fox Jumps Over the Parson's Gate."

Three really rare Bellamy LPs on two CDs for the price of one CD. Gotta be bargain of the century....

If you really crave vinyl, copies of "MN" are regularly on eBay for around 30 quid (they use to be over 100 back in the day...)

Yes, I have those CDs. I certainly don't crave vinyl, I was delighted when CD reissues started appearing. But before that Mainy Norfolk was top of the records on my 'wanted' list - a fact that Reinhard's site's name reminded me. But I'm over that now.

I never collected cassette tapes, though I did buy Songs an' Rummy Conjurin' Tricks. It was only recently, when I read this_thread that I realised that Soldiers Three includes a few Kipling songs I haven't heard.

Good to hear the Young'uns mentioned by Hagman - a top band with great vocal harmonies. If you like that kind of thing you'll love this band - they really are at the top of their game at the moment.

Taking this opportunity to say a big Thank You to member DaveRo. He got a CD copy to me of "Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs."

I'm fascinated with "Heriot's Ford" because Kipling's text is an obvious homage to the tragic traditional English ballads; Bellamy's melody, I don't know if it is a traditional melody, or one original to Bellamy that behaves like a trad tune. But hearing Bellamy sing it a cappella is thrilling. An ignorant listener could be forgiven, hearing this performance, for believing that this setting of Kipling was actually out of the trad repertoire.

Bellamy fans will not be disappointed or surprised with The Young'uns - they are self-confessed PB fans. They carry the flag....

You've just discovered the trick and the genius of both Bellamy and Kipling....!

Play "Green Fields of England" from The Transports to anyone, and ask them what year it was first performed.... not many will get close to 1977
