I love these songs, like Rob I first discovered the recordings on vinyl back in the early seventies with Requiem for Steam on the Big Ben label. I have since bought two copies of each of the individual cds and was given the compilation cd as a present. I was also delighted to meet Dave at Broadstairs Folk Week a couple of years back. The magic of the songs is that they are so obviously written by someone who has 'been there, done that' and not by an armchair enthusiast/poet.
If you are in any way railway minded or have a nostalgia for or interest in the days of steam then these are a must for you. They are available from Dave's website along with a few clips to whet your appetite. Don't just sit there - order them now - here:- Dave Goulder's website
Are EMI involved with the book?
