Listening a lot to Jim recently & I can't help but feel the man truly is a national treasure; one of the great voices of the Engish Traditional Song and yet as quirky & as idiosyncratic as one could wish...

Who's with me on this? Share your thoughts!

Jim Eldon Band

I have to say that I have seen Jim live and whilst I thought he was funny, I just couldn't get my head around the fiddle playing. Sounded totally off key to my ears, and I haven't found anybody yet who can explain this. Is it me or is it meant to be that way or what.

Can anybody educate the uneducated?

He is a rare commodity, and that is meant in the nicest way.

Jim appeared at the Yorkshire Garland Luanch on Sep 15th in York at the NCEM for us

He is most certainly a total one off, National Treasure ~ could be!

He has fans certainly high up the folk hiarachy, even though he can mostly be seen on the boats at Bridlington! entertaining in his own way

A collector story teller singer and scratchy fiddler with his own selection of songs, also Lynnette clogging

His vinyl entitled " I wish there was no Prisons"

His Lady of York (Cruel Mother) version is totally succinct and movingly haunting

The only time I met Jim was when he did an album for Topic with the late Tufty Swift in our little garage studio. He seemed a very nice guy, and played in tune as I remember. In fact I'm certain he did, I've heard the record.

Perhaps the playing out of tune is something he has decided to do in later life. Folk music is a bit like that. I made several similar decisions.

Jim took over the role of The Brid Fiddler, working on the pleasure boats out of the Yorkshire port, in the early eighties from my late compadre Nigel Chippindale, and is still going strong in the summer months.
Also a fine, and quirky songwriter, Check out Pools Win, amongst many others.
There have been several self made CDs over the years, all of which never fail in raising a smile.
Well worth checking out, and if anyone is in Brid next summer, why not take a "Trip round the Bay" with Jim.

I recall him selling cuddly toys (made by Lynette?) at gigs in the early 80's, one of which was a baby seal which he suggested we could club together to get...
He also had a lot of interesting stories about collecting songs in North Lincolnshire (and pitfalls to avoid), for a local radio programme he used to be involved with.
Quack!

I could sit listening to his songs and stories for hours. In fact, I have. So intense that on occasion it's made me think: "This must have been what it was like listening to the old Delta bluesmen." Not stylistically, of course, but you know ... So, yeah, I'd join an appreciation society.

And Ralphie - In the 70s I saw a wild man in a tartan jacket, singing songs like Recconnaiz Cherie and Whole Wide World. He was called Wreckless Eric (sic) ... but Restless Eric sounds much more interesting

I think my favourite of all Jim's own songs is Custom Car Kid; when I sing 'Mutton Pie' in singarounds I invariably include verses from Custom Car Kid by way of personal acknowledgement to the great man.

Oh, he's got side-winders on his exhaust,
He's told me twice how much it cost;
It's a farting camel when he drives off,
But at least he's gone and that's no loss -
With a foll-the-diddle-di-do -
foll-the-diddle-dee.

Oh, the Custom Car Kid comes to settle his bill,
He says know wat I mea, Lads, it needn't go in the till;
He paid us cash but we charged him full,
And we pocketed the tax, he though he'd done real well -
With a foll-the-diddle-di-do -
foll-the-diddle-dee.

In fact, it's amazing how many songs fit the tune of Mutton Pie; I also lob in verses from The Twa Corbies, Willie's Lady, Same Old Man, Leatherwing Bat and The Maid and the Magpie.

I still have a worn copy of the "Loaded Dice" cassette by Jim Eldon and the Allsorts. All sons by Jim..including "Pools Win" and "Custom Car Kid"....it's brilliant! My two (young at the time) daughters were grat fand and insisted I get them his autograph !!! The Allsorts are those notables Richard Wastling,Brian Slater,Dave Hill,Wayne Nicholls and John Craft.   By the way Sedayne , The Jim Eldon Appreciation Society was started By Brenda Spence and Pete Fletcher at Nellie's (White Horse Folk Club) in the early 80s(or it might have been the late 70s). I was an early member.
As well as those soft toys that Lynette made he also used to sell clowns and monkeys on sticks...a craft he'd learnt from travelling folk when collecting somgs from them. I remember at one Towersey festival Jim and Bill Caddick....(perhaps having imbibed a little too much) walking through the audience during a set by Roaring Jelly with usherettes trays shouting "Get your stuffed vermin" This was soon brought to an end as they walked on the stage and a hedgehog's head was bitten off. Yes Jim is a one-off!
Ossonflags...yes I remember the wooden flutes. In fact he sold one of his very old ones to a friend of mine Paul Blackburn,with instructions to keep it in a barrel of water overnight to preserve its tone
As for the scratchy fiddle playing ,Villan....try listening beyond that...particularly at live performances..he's a great entertainer.
These days I usually meet Jim at Maritime festivals..and the trilby and leather jacket have been replaced by a suit!!
As you can probably guess I'm a fan.

Hi Geoff
>>As for the scratchy fiddle playing ,Villan....try listening beyond that...particularly at live performances..he's a great entertainer.
<<
I didn't say I didn't like him, in fact I did, but the fiddle playing was very difficult to take on board. I saw him up at Grimsby Folk Club and had Dai Woosnam next to me who is a fan. I think he did "Something Else" the old Eddie Cochran song and I thought he did that really well.
I have no doubt he is a very good entertainer, I am just a tad intrigued about the fiddle bit.
Whens he next on at GFC then Geoff?

It's the song that starts...
"I was alligator wrestling in Pearson Park.
My heart missed a beat when I heard the bloodhounds bark.
There was posse of parkies hard upon my tail
I was hanging on tight to the alligator's tail.
Home town , Home town.
It's a hard hard city , it's a hard hard town.
I'm gonna get a budgie if the pace slows down.
Home town."

Mick Waterson told Jim he shouldn't write songs about problems, but about solutions. Jim's answer to this was that he only really knew one thing worth knowing, about toilet rolls getting out of sync.

'Pass one ply round behind, see your problems all unwind.
There was never a fault in the roll you'll find,
If you just pass one ply round behind.'

My life has been free from problem toilet rolls ever since, thanks to Jim.

Jim is a really nice bloke, an important collector of traditional songs, and a very good performer of traditional music.
Regretably someone once told him that he could write songs.
Even more regretably someone once told him it was quite ok for him to do whole sets of his own and other modern stuff.

Young Buchan, I cannot and will not understand the sort of intellectual arrogance that stands inside another man's soul and tells him how he should express himself artistically. Shame on you.

Sometimes artists do take the 'wrong' path. One thinks of Django Rheinhardts move to electric guitars. But this is lofty sounding nonsense. Perhaps if you had done gigs in noisy nightclubs with even a modern electro-acoustic guitar, you could understand where Django was standing.

Maybe Jim learned something on that ferry boat, playing for holidaymakers about the true nature of of 'folk' music that has eluded you thus far.

WLD...I'll second that.
Although Jim has made a great contribution to the collecting and preservation of songs...particularly those of travellers...and I could happily spend all night listening to him perform them....his own songs are also well observed , often amusing, and entertaining.

Ah, now I understand. I point out some of Jim's good qualities. That's appreciation. I point out some of his weaknesses. That's intellectual arrogance. Yes, of course, his weaknesses IN MY OPINION. All this kind of thing is subjective as is all art criticism, and I don't feel bound to keep saying 'in my opinion but of course there are other opinions and you're not bound to take my word for it' every time I want to express a view.
Why does it cause people such distress that I want to be critical? Has the Folk movement lost all critical faculties? The editor of a regional folk magazine once told me that after he'd farmed out records to be reviewed, if he got a bad review back, he would send it to someone else in the hope of getting a better one. How do we hold up our head as a musical art form if this is our attitude?
Let's be quite clear what I am saying. I do NOT, and I do not even feel like reserving the right to, come on these pages and criticise by name amateur performers. But Jim is a professional. He takes money, albeit hardly a fortune, from the movement in general, and from me personally when I buy tickets to watch him. I think, even without years of studying folk music behind me, I have the right to be critical when I believe he is making mistakes.
How do professionals improve if every comment they get is from an Appreciation Society? I'm very sorry this sounds like an attack on Jim, because the ONLY reason I have chosen to contribute to this is that I really admire so much about him that I think he is worth 'saving' (how's that for intellectual arrogance?).
Someone has asked about whether I would be critical of Vin Garbutt. No I wouldn't, because I have no time for his work at all, so I have no interest in trying to improve him. Jim however is different. And so I get railed to death…

Forget what i was saying Buchan - i don't know whether you're arrogant or not. I just thought it was awful thing to say about anybody.. Writing songs is what he has decided to do with his life. he brings quite a lot of abilities and intelligence to the table.

if you feel unable to engage with what he does, well that's how it is sometimes.

there are whole areas of the folk world that wouldn't get on my Christmas shopping list, unless I end up shovelling coal in hell one day. however surely we can all relate to the amount of effort that it takes to be a competent folksinger, of any kind.
