I knew him as he ran clubs in Ledds and he was good chap for supporting my eary attempts at performing.
I was trying to track down his song'Percy the Peeler from Poppleton' awhile back.
I was a student in Leeds at the time I met him but I left Leeds in 1967 to return south.
I will always remember him, you are lucky to have some recordings of him.
I remember turning up to a pub and he was sat in a back room, singing to 2 people in very dimmed lighting,I'ld have liked to have known him more but I moved out of the scene as work took over.
Thats why I run 2 folk clubs and a song swap session these days.
