Hi all

I am new on mudcat and have just spotted that there was a thread regarding Geoff Bodenham and 1812. I was on here looking for lyrics for jobsworth-Jeremy Taylor and spotted it.

Geoff is my dad and is playing at the Theatre on the steps this Saturday (19th Sept 09) along with Bill Caddick. Geoff will be doing some of his favourites of folk and irish and it should be great. Tickets are £8 and can be bought at Bridgnorth library on 01746 763358. You gotta plug your own dad surely!

Thanks all and if anyone has the following please let me know:

jobsworth
Love in the sand

and another song called 'O'd to a cow' to do with artificial insemination don't know who by though.

Thankyou everyone

Helen Bodenham

Hi and welcome.

But - where is the Theatre on the Steps? I presume from the phone number format that it's somewhere in the UK.

It's at Bridgnorth..

Nice to see Geoff's still playing, Helen. He wouldn't remember me, but please give him my regards anyway.

This is a really long shot but a group of us are looking for a Geoff Bodenham who used to teach at Russells Hall Middle School. We made a record with him late in 1980 'A Blackcountry Carol' if this is the same Geoff Bodenham it would be great if he could get in touch. I'm on facebook..jenny.nutt1

Where on earth did that link to the Jeremy Taylor song thread come from?

I'm quite sure I didn't put it there, though I remember making the post.

Geoff Bodenham was one of the original resident singers at the Giffard Folk Club in Wolverhampton - 1962 onwards, where I was also a resident singer and committee member. He later formed 1812 with Derek Craft
Several years ago he ran a club out in the Shropshire countryside at the Lion O'Morfe. Became licensee of pub in Bridgnorth (the Bell and Talbot)which used to have music nights. I last met him a few years ago in B-north and he was fine - I should imagine long retired by now (aren't we all!) I believe he may have been a teacher at one time so the Russells Hall query could be correct.

It's extremely likely that this is the same Geoff Bodenham as he trained at Dudley College of Education ( 1974 - 77ish). I ran the folk club for some of that time and he was a valued performer. Russell's hall is just down the road.

To Helen Bodenham, regarding the requests in your original message:

A link to JOBSWORTH has already been posted.

LOVE IN THE SAND - Could you mean LOVE LETTERS IN THE SAND, famously sung by Pat Boone? Lyrics have not been posted at Mudcat, but they are readily found on the Internet.

LOVE IN THE SAND is also the name of a piece written by Henry Mancini and Bob Merrill; it is also known as LOVE THEME FROM "SUNFLOWER." It was used in the soundtrack of the film "Sunflower" starring Sopia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni in 1970. I wasn't able to find out whether it has words.

See my new thread for ODE TO A COW by Garry Moore, although I doubt it's the one you want.

I am not a member.
I used to go see Geoff Bodenham/1812 in the mid 70's around the Wolverhampton area. I do have a copy of he 1812 album, its in mp3 format, from when I transferred all my 12" records.

Roy:

Thanks for posting: it looks like you've got material which is now rare; copyright laws notwithstanding, it would be useful to both the artist and the general public if this were made available. Mudcat doen't provide such facilities, but "archive.org" does; I doubt if there would be any legal repercussions if you aeded it there.
