I used to see him pretty regularly when I lived near Hull, in Beverley. At that time he was based around Leeds and so was a frequent guest at a lot of the clubs. I'd not sung any of his songs for years and then recently found some of his tapes and remembered just how good some of his stuff was. I've started performing "Rose and the Briar" and "Roll on the Day" again - brilliant songs.
You are clearly someone with very good taste! - Allan Taylor and Vin Garbutt - now theres a contrast - but both huge talents.
