Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Port Mahon (Sydney Carter) - Recordings?
Subject: RE: PORT MAHON - RECORDINGS?
Thanks for your message, Bob. I too have all the Sydney Carter song books, and so am aware of the recordings you mention, which I have been seeking - unsuccessfully! - at record fairs for some years now. It seems to me that SC is a great 'unsung' folk idiom writer. I can't understand why more of his songs aren't sung more often. I certainly do MY best! So . . . I'm still on the lookout for a currently available recording of Port Mahon . . .
