Thread Name: Ed McCurdy CDs and LPs
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy CDs and LPs
Ed also was selling a cassette tape of his songs in his later years. It was called "Songs after 60" and it contained a version of Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream that was recorded with a choir of children - it may be the most beautiful recording of all.
Also, I shoud correct something I wrote several years ago in this th read. The LP "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" was recorded in 1976, not 1967 as my typo suggests. Tracy Schwarz and Hedy West helped produce the LP which was issued by Bear Family Records in Germany.
I'm not sure of the dates of the two Folkways LP's that ed recorded with his son Dana - one was a gospel album and the other childrens stories.
Also, there is another thread about "Miracle of the Wheat", a 45 that Ed recorded in the late 1950's. Apparently this is a very rare recording and much sought after by folks in Cincinnati. I get requests each year for copies, which I'm afraid I cannot legally supply.
