Thread Name: A.L. Lloyd biography - help needed
Subject: A.L. LLOYD biography - help needed
This from Stuart Booth:

Dave Arthur has written an excellent and much needed biog of the great A. L. Lloyd and it has been under consider action by Pluto Press for some time now. The Editorial Director, Anne Beech, is tremendously keen that the company sign it up, but is having trouble persuading the rest of the decision makers there that is is a an essential book... which we all know it is.

Can I ask you to join me in sending to Anne your enthusiasm, support and (above all) just how important Bert was and why Pluto MUST do the book?
Anne has said that she will welcome any such endorsements and the bigger the names/support, the better.

I am doing this in no other capacity than as an enthusiast. Feel free to copy this on too.....

You can email Anne at:

Please add your feelings to Anne that this biography of one of Britain's finest ethnomusicologists and a central figure to the development of the folk scene in the UK needs to be published.
