Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Death of Poor Bill Brown
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Death of Poor Bill Brown
At the ECMW last year I bought a video of Arthur Howard published by "Garland Films" from Barry Callaghan. It includes "The Death of Poor Bill Brown" plus "The Dogs' Party"; "The Bonny Grey"; "Piddling Pete"; "The Christmas Goose" and "Paul and Patience". The cover mentions a record called "Merry Mountain Child" from 1981 - but no other info on that, I'm afraid.
Frank Hinchliffe can be heard on at least one of the excellent CDs produced by Musical Traditions Magazine (mustrad.org.uk ). I'm pretty sure he's on one called "Up in the North... " but I haven't got it here at the moment. Check out their catalogue and buy the whole series - they are astoundingly good value with lots of tracks; superb notes and all the lyrics.
