Thread Name: Ed McCurdy CDs and LPs
Subject: RE: Ed McCurdy CDs and LPs
Mccurdy's version of Tickle Cove Pond is the definitive one.I had it but lost it. When I was ayoung boy in the fifties, I remember passing McCurdy on Preston Street in Halifax. I recognized him from TV. Within a 100 feet of that spot lived our neighbors, the McCurdys. Thirty years later, when he moved to Halifax, I used to serve him at a newsstand I worked at. He looked great. Bearded, flowing hair, tweed cape, big imposing man with a formal but friendly manner and well dressed and still pleased to be recognized.
