Hi there - wonder if you can help?

I've been reading Cider With Rosie by Laurie Lee and I find it hard to believe that no contemporary songwriters will have written anything inspired by the stories in it. Can anyone point me in the direction of any?

Many thanks

Your memory is correct - I have the original vinyl version from 1988.

Incidentally, I don't think that Paul Burgess (credited musician) is "the" Paul Burgess. On the sleeve notes he is said to play 'Recorders" and not drums.

Edge of day is the album. In my opinion one of the best things that Johnny Coppin has ever done. The Paul Burgess mentioned is Paul Burgess of the Old Swan Band and one of the very best english fiddle players and all round musicians. The album features Johnnys settings of Lauries work and features actor David Goodland as well as some contributions from myself. For me its one of the great 'lost' albums into which a huge amount of time effort and work went. Check it out.

It was also probably the last work associated with Laurie before he died. He might have appeared on one radio programme subsequently but I think that was it.
