Thread Name: Lyr Req: Trouble over Bridgwater (Chris Joe Beard)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Trouble over Bridgewater (Trevor Crozier)
I worked with Trevor and his partner Anne as a minstrel in 1970 in one of those mock Tudor feast places that were popular at the time, 1520AD in St Martins Lane.
Happy Days (or Daze more likely!)
Lovely man. I recall his manager around that time was convinced Trevor with friends would get into the charts and on TOTP with a song about the fashion for wearing old fur coats, I don't think the project got past rehearsals but I can just about remember one or two lines (or words). I think the manager at the time was Kevin Sheldon who contributed spoken words to Lea Nicholson's Horsemusic LP. In fact IIRC Lea was also involved in the fur coat project.
Oh and Guest from Bridgwater, the reason was that it was in the west country and allowed for the pun on BOTW!
