Thread Name: Query re Alasdair Clayre
Subject: RE: Query re Alasdair Clayre
I started a Wikipedia entry on Clayre, which others have subsequently added to. I have the "Adam and the Beasts" LP and one of his books. I used to have his other LP on Elektra, which now goes for about 50 pounds on eBay, and would love to see it reissued on CD (can Rhino be persuaded? They have the rights to the WEA archives.) He also had several tracks on another Elektra folk compilation called "A Cold Wind Blows" which could be added as bonus tracks.
His translation of "La Colombe" has been recorded by both Joan Baez and Judy Collins. His own version appears on the Elektra LP.
