Subject: June Tabor song ideas ?
From: GUEST,Azoic
Date: 10 Sep 11 - 04:41 PM

IF YOU had a say in what songs June Tabor would include in her musical repertoire,what songs would you choose?As far as my own opinion,I feel that song selection is her strongest suite,and that she has impeccable taste.I would, however, love to hear her sing 'The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" by Jimmy Webb, "Autumn Leaves"or "Brother Can you Spare A Dime".Any ideas?

I've never heard of that, Tim. Where is it from? ;)

"The Grey Tunnel Line" was sung by Cyril Tawney on "Tubular Dogs". Incidentally, June Tabor sang "Get a Long Little Dogie" on the same album and she helped Bill Caddick on a midnight snack of "Custard Creams".

My own song "Telling the Bees" -- which is soon to be available on Mudcat's "This Is Us!" collection and is, if I do say so myself, depressing enough for even June T's famously dark sensibilities!

Suegorgeous, the version I sang at last year's Getaway is on YouTube, but that was the long version (too many choruses) without accompaniment, and before I changed the tune just a bit to take out the high, squeaky bits. A shorter, accompanied and, well, vastly superior version will be on the new Mudcat CD set.

Also I understand that Jacqui C. sang it at Herga FC in the past few weeks, if you were lucky enough to see her there.

I wish she'd record Icarus, which I heard her sing some years back. However, clearly that's already in her repertoire, so is stretching the thread a little.

Yes, and she may only sing it when he's around to accompany her. She does a glorious job on it.

My own song Needle & Thread, which is also on "This is Us", is one I'd love to hear from her - I've listened to superb versions (live and recorded) by both Tom Bliss and Tom Napper, and I have had reports of different female singers performing it around the country (learned either from the 2 Toms or me) so I live in hopes ...

"Some" years back is at least 20. She sang it without Martin Simpson at Wrea Green Folk Club. Whether she sings it at all nowadays I don't know.
