As a singer, she's a sort of female counterpart to Richard Thompson - the voice sounds a bit dolorous, with that doom and gloom element. She's sort of the Anna Magnani of singers.

(I'm not saying that's a bad thing; quite the opposite.)

Anna Magnani? Who? Looked her up on good old ever-reliable Wikipedia.

- ""living she-wolf symbol" of the cinema."

"Magnani was superstitious and consulted astrologers, as well as believing in numerology. She also claimed to be clairvoyant. She ate and drank very little and could subsist for long periods on nothing more than black coffee and cigarettes. However, these habits often affected her sleep: "My nights are appalling," she said. "I wake up in a state of nerves and it takes me hours to get back in touch with reality."[5]"


"She died at the age of 65 in Rome from pancreatic cancer."

Let's hope not, shall we?


Ho-hum, indeed.

Got news for you whippersnappers: Anna Magnani was one of the greatest actresses of the post-war international cinema. Her debut I believe was in Rosselini's "Open City" (1945).

I don't know about that personal stuff, but she had a dramatic and sultry screen presence.

As for June Tabor, she takes a sentimental stinkeroo like "Roses in Picardy" and turns it into genuinely moving experience.

I don't think even Anna Magnani could do that.

Tabor's "Silly Sisters" album with Maddy Prior is well worth anybody's time. Two great voices.

Why knock songs like Roses Of Picardy, Lighter? Bit cheap and patronising, isn't it? I have no doubt it was a "genuinely moving experience" rather than "a sentimental stinkeroo" when sung by the likes of Ernest Pike & Count John McCormack, as well as by June 80 years later, and played in a jazz arrangement by the great Sidney Bechet; quite apart from serving a vital purpose by being a favourite of the men on the way to the Front in 1917 [see Wikipedia].

Sorry if our tastes in the printed word differ, but anyone who calls me "cheap and patronizing" (particularly in the snide form of a leading question) can only be hankerin' for yet another Mudcat flame war. But perhaps it was only my characterization of the text of "Roses of Picardy" that you were slamming and not me personally.

Which would be a mighty close call for you.

Yet the truth remains that certain singers have the talent (or genius) to turn lyrical hokum into an emotional experience. June Tabor is one.

By way of contrast, no amount of genius is likely to turn today's hits into emotional experiences, unless you confine "emotion" to lust, rage, and boredom.

I also love her Finisterre on the new album. And I have utterly converted my two-and-a-half year old granddaughter to (Il Etait) Un Petit Navire, which she sings along to very impressively in the car and to herself after spending two weeks with us in France (though she's thrown a little, having heard it from her gran since birth, by June's variations, including C'etait in place of the more familiar Il Etait and a sort of 'Ah Oui' instead of Ohé Ohé)

Subject: RE: June Tabor Discussion
From: Colin Randall
Date: 26 Jun 11 - 08:04 AM

My granddaughter, mentioned in my previous message, will be even more thrown when she is old enough to realise that Tabor, in her version of Petit Navire (collected in Guernsey) has the poor cabin boy eaten by his starving crewmates.

Usually, at any rate in all the versions I have seen, he is saved either by the British Navy or by the sudden appearance of enough fish to keep everyone happy. It is, after all, meant to be a children's song.

I'd be interested if Monique or others among Mudcat's regular French contributors knows how common it is for the song to proceed to cannibalism. My wife is French but swears she had never come across the unhappy ending before hearing June's version.

And here, in case anyone is interested, is a review I have just posted at Salut! Live-

That first Tabor/Oysterband album was a revelation and I cannot wait for the second, which I think is due out in Sept or Oct.

In fact, when I think back, it was the project that first turned me into an admirer of the band. I was already massively fond of Tabor but had never quite seen the appeal of the Oysters. The album completely changed my view and I have enjoyed almost everything they have done since, on record and live.

To answer Colin's question (26 Jun 11 - 08:04 AM):
Le petit navire: I'd never heard of any version in which the young boy was eaten before I heard June's version. Though... in Diapason Turquoise #1, Les Presses de l'Ile de France, 2001 they say, "'Il était un petit navire (La courte paille)' Paroles et musiques traditionnelles (chanson de gaillard d'avant du XIXe siècle) Il s'agit du dernier avatar, daté du milieu du XIXe siècle, d'une chanson de gaillard d'avant du XVIe siècle qui a essaimé dans toute l'Europe. Dans la version d'origine, le caractère dramatique était nettement plus affirmé." = "'Il était un petit navire' (La courte paille) Traditional lyrics and music (forecastle song from the 19th century). It's the last avatar, from the mid 1800's, of a 16th century forecastle song that spread all over Europe. In the original version, the dramatic nature was much more marked."
But I couldn't come across such a version. In some they discuss the sauce in some they don't, but the young boy isn't eaten.
In at least one Spanish version they do eat the poor young guy with a white sauce and xeres for his being the plumpest but God sends a storm as a punishment and the boat and the crew sink.

See Square Roots. June Tabor sings "Bird in a Cage", which was recrded at the Stagfolk Folk Club in 1972.

Unfortunately, June Tabor's gig in about 1973 at the Ivy Bush (Pontardawe) was one that I didn't record. Always a favourite of mine.

My memories go back slightly further even than Kitty's, to 1966 or -67 (whenever June arrived in Oxford). In those days her songs were mostly or entirely traditional and without accompaniment, though I think she has said herself that the lack of accompaniment was dictated by circumstance rather than choice.

I have mixed feelings about her much wider range of material and the amount of accompaniment in later years. Some of it works for me, but a lot doesn't. But then that's a matter of taste, not good v. bad. I do agree that she is a great singer.

Oh and BTW, to correct a reference above, her one-time flatmate's name is Clive Woolf, not Wolff.

Seeing and hearing June sing Richard Thompson's "Strange Affair", with Martin Simpson on guitar in a concert on BBC4 some months ago, was one of those beautiful moments when song, singer and accompanist were perfectly matched.

As for "The Roses of Picardy" - described some time ago in this thread as a "sentimental stinkeroo" - my own view is that it's a quietly nostalgic song from 1916, the music of which repays some study. The composer of the music, Haydn Wood, was a superb violin player and composer of light classics. The chordal and harmonic structure of the verse to R of P is a classic exercise in early 20th century light composition from a master of the genre. Personally, I can't hear it without thinking of the Somme - and the nostalgia, for me, is always tinged with melancholy.

I haven't heard June Tabor sing it, but I can imagine that she brought out that sense of melancholy.

My earliest memories of June's singing are of her singing the Lover's Ghost and Sheath and Knife. And also, just for fun, round a campfire at Sidmouth, Dido Bendigo.

I always had a few June Tabor vinyls in my collection,but I was not fully appreciative of her talent until I saw her perform at the East Avenue Tavern,Portland,OR around 1989.Voice and piano (Huw Warren)June graciously agreed to sing my request to close the show: "Pull Down Lads".Maybe the finest performance by any artists that I have ever seen/heard.

Some of us are bloody old then to remember so far back Re Roses of Picardy it is a wartime song sung by soldiers going over the the top to almost certain death I have sung it numerous times and coached a 17 year old in it for an exam. I am raising the brickbat barrier here as I do not think it is one of JTs best songs
