There's a two-disc CD by Peter Bellamy called "Mr Bellamy, Mr Kipling And The Tradition". If you go to (remember to spell "music" with a K, though they're in Cornwall,not Germany!)you'll see it listed about the second title down on their homepage. If you click on it, there's a list of all the tracks. (I don't work for MusikFolk and am not making any profit on anything, promise. I mention this because I keep recommending them to people who are after various folk recordings - they're a very good retail site and seem to be able to find just about anything.) If you haven't come across Peter's musical setting of "Danny Deever" be sure to give it a listen if you can - it's great. I know Tim Laycock used to sing it (or still does)with concertina, and if he's recorded it, I can tell you it's an excellent rendition. Happy hunting. Wish Peter could know how many people love his music and miss him...
