Thread Name: Cyril Tawney - Illness
Subject: RE: Cyril Tawney
Get well soon, Cyril. You made me cry the first time I heard you sing the Oggy Man, in Edinburgh 1963, I think. As a former Merchant Navy engineer, I experience the sentiments expressed in Sally Free and Easy and the Oggy Man many times, but your songs reminded me that I was not alone in my grief. Hang on in there, you're sorely needed in the earthly choir.
