I'm researching a particular recording of The Bold Princess Royal, made in September of 1952 by Ned Adams.
I'm looking for information on the life of Ned Adams as well as his musical background and various influences.
All that I have been able to find is that his nickname is Ned "Wintry" Adams, and that he did a recording of the same song for Bob Copper in 1954 in Hastings, and, according to this forum, that it was 'the only song he knew incidentally, but it's fairly awash with salt water and atmosphere.'(see http://dev.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=25091&page=2&desc=yes)
Does anyone have any more information about the life and music tradition of Mr. Adams? Or anything to confirm the above quote, that it was 'the only song he knew?'
His rendition is such a good one, it would be a shame not to know anything about him.
