Subject: RE: Sydney Carter Recordings & Books
I sing quite a few of Sydney's songs. He's written some wonderful songs about (or often questioning) religious or social subjects - my favourites are:
Friday Morning (wonderfully ironic)
Standing in the rain
Crow on the Cradle
John Ball.

On the other hand there are some great comic/lighter songs that people often don't realise that he wrote:
The Telephone Song
Down Below
Eros (I posted the words to a thread the other day)
Man With a Microphone
Silver in the Stubble (let me be chaste etc - but not quite yet)
