Thread Name: Origins: Poverty Knock
Subject: RE: Source for Poverty Knock
Bill & Wendy Price lived in Dewsbury, close to Tommy Daniel's home in Batley. Wendy wrote in 1972 on the sleve notes to Bill's 'Fine old Yorkshire gentleman' LP that Tommy was best known for 'preserving and reconstructing' Poverty Knock.
Around the time of Tommy's death much of his material was written down & a very few coppies were made, Wendy Price thinks someone borrowed her copy. Keith Pearson (who ran a music shop in Dewsbury) died 7 or 8 years ago & his copy was probably thrown out. A Guy called Dennis who now lives in Peterborough had a copy off Keith but can't find it. So does anyone know of any surviving copy? Did Mick Haywood (now in Whitby) have a copy?
