Have to back up Bonnie, Kipling/Belamy's Danny Deever is a killer (heh, heh), used to sing it playing a soft death march on a bodhran behind it, strangly enough, it mixes very well. Another that I love is Frankie's Trade & another is his "I Once Lived in Service" from his ballad opera 'The Transports' & another one is.... It's years since I had the great luck to hear him, I can still see his performence in a flashingly bright red suit, covering the whole stage singing his shanty Roll Down. Quite a talent, quite a loss. Barry
