GUEST,Lionel Lyr Req: 'Suddenly it's Folk Song' (7) RE: Lyr Req: 'Suddenly it's Folk Song' 11 May 02

From the liner notes, by Doug Geddes, to The Best of Sellers: "Finally, Ludwig Sellers brings to us via his portable recorder some of the of the interesting songs of these Isles in "Suddenly it's Folk Song." From an English country pub and a Gaelic singer in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, to a genuine Irish Ceili Band, Peter Sellers faithfully portrays some musical gems which should long have been forgotten! The Scottish one is the more valuable for including the sound of a rapidly departing tramcar, a means of transport now almost non-existant. Glaswegians will be glad to know that tramcar is quite genuine and not one imported from Princes Street. .... In closing, Peter Sellers wishes me to acknowledge his recording mamager, without whose help this LP might have been produced more easily produced more easily!" Interestingly, I think that the producer was Sir George Martin.
