A production of The Transports was forever on the cards for the Durham Folk Party; one of those projects we always talked about but never quite got round to, for whatever reason, though I did go so far as to learn 'Abe Carmen (The Robber's Song)' in its second, more melanchony incarnation as it appears on Bellamy's 1985 EFDSS album 'Second Wind' - almost sang it last night actually, but opted for 'The Way Through the Woods' instead.

Might this, one wonders, be a possibilty for a future Fylde? A Steamer Production indeed - something to seriously consider...

Shortly before we moved down to LSA, the gaffer of the Durham Folk Club (Ian McCulloch) gifted me his original vinyl of The Transports, signed by the great man himself, who'd also added the 'Quantas' flag to the mast of the transport ship illustrated in the booklet. A treasure to be sure.

Does anyone have the (1987?) Radio 2 recording featuring Jim Eldon as The Street Singer?
