How many covers of It's Good To See You?
Quote from the 2006/7 re-designed Allan Taylor Songbook Vol 1 (now available on line from his website and at his gigs):
To date (2006) there are 55 cover versions of this song, in 8 different languages.
For a complete discography of Allan's CD and album releases throughout the world, visit http://home.arcor.de/kai63/ataylor.html . This website has been prepared by Kai-Uwe Willems who has the most complete collection of Allan's CDs and albums including special editions from various parts of the world, including demo tapes and first mixes etc.
We (jiva) cover three of Allan's Songs:
We Must Journey On
Jimmy's Song - heartfelt, gut-wrenching (especially beautiful is the version on the vinyl 'Where Would You Rather Be Tonight' album)
Favourite Allan Taylor Song?
Standing At The Door - brings Jimmy to tears every time!
But... just wait till you hear 'Almost Man' - brand new, as yet unrecorded.
The thing about Allan's songs, and the reason why they appeal, is that people can relate to them... change a few placenames and it could be you or me or us in the songs.
Shame we can't make Faldingworth - but we do have him booked at Ashington Folk Club for November 15th!
