Subject: Let's Talk Bellamy
From: Daphne Glover
Date: 22 Oct 99 - 02:06 PM

As some of you know, I am working with Ken Schatz, Heather Wood and several other folk artists in the NY area to put together a staged reading/theatrical performance piece based on Rudyard Kipling's Puck of Pook's Hill and Rewards and Fairies. Many of the songs and poems from these books were set to music by Peter Bellamy and recorded in the 1980s. I have found all but one of these recordings, and I am hoping you all may be able to help me to find it.

Mr. Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs seems to be the phantom recording of the century, I have checked into Dambuster Records- the label on which it was recorded- The Young Tradition, and with John Roberts and Tony Barrand. What am I not thinking of? Where might I find a copy of this recording?

If anyone has this recording, I would be more than happy to send cassettes and postage if you would be kind enough to make me a copy. Three of the songs on this recording will make a wonderful difference on how this whole peice comes together. So thank you in advance for your efforts on behalf of Ken and myself.

My contact information is:

Daphne Glover 85 Eastern Pkwy #4A Brooklyn, NY 11238

Try Jenny Bellamy. Also a new triple CD of Peter's work has just been released - "Awake the Vaulted Echoes" produced by Neil Wayne - I think on Free Reed label. If you e-mail me ( I'll let you have Jenny's E-mail address. But it wil be next week as I'm just going away for a couple of days. (But the dogs will still be guarding the house behind the electric fence!)

Hi Daphne. I'm hoping that Jeri might see this, she usually sees Jeff Warner at the Fri night sessions up this way & Jeff has been assoc. with the Bellamy's for some time. This aside I'd like to say it's nice to see you & if you don't mind welcome you to the rest of the family. Some of you NYC people may Daphne & some others may have seen her or heard her at the getaway. She was kind enought to assist us (myself, David, & Bonny along with Ken) at the shanty workshop & was instrumental in us all pulling off "Come Down You Roses". I first met Daphne a few years ago at Mystic she was with her younger sister & mother (as the group the Windlasses, you may want to check out their CD) & they were there to join in the fun. The next year they were preforming there. We had some threads awhile back aout todays youth & folk music, well Daphne (sorry, I won't say how young) has been singing with her family & since moving to NYC has been tied up with those she mentioned above along with being taken under the wing by the Johnson Girls, the NexTradition, the New York Packet, the shantymen at Mystic & the few times we (Finn & Haddie) get the chance/pleasure to sing with her. You all be nice to her now & give her a hand, you'll be hearing a lot of great stuff from her. My pleasure. Barry

I'll e-mail Bob Blackman in E.Lansing, Michigan about this one. Being connected to Elderly Instruments plus having a long standing folk radio program gives him pretty amazing access to a large folk record collection. As you probably know, Bob was a good friend of Peter's.

We'll see...

Barry and Daphne, I just came from the session and Jeff wasn't there tonight. I'll e-mail him or try asking next week if he's there - unless there's an answer before then.

Just got this from Bob Blackman in Lansing...

It was on a British label called Dambuster, came out in '89 and is out of print. Actual title is Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs. I don't even have a copy. It didn't get widely distributed over here.

There's a new 3--CD compilation of Peter's music on the FREE REED label. It's called Wake The Vaulted Echos: A Celebration Of Peter Bellamy. (Free Reed 14)Almost 60 tracks and over 3 hours of his music, plus a nicely put together booklet with photos, interviews, track notes, complete discography and more.Also a CD-Rom section onj the last disc with links to PB websites, some of Peter's artwork etc. Elderly Instruments carries it at

Thanks everybody! I got back from a weekend away doing music with Pinewoods and there were all the answers waiting for me on this thread! So that you guys know, the record of Rudyard Kipling Made Exceedingly Good Songs was released on Dambuster in 1989 and is now out of print. It was available on the website that Jeri mentioned and I have ordered copies from them. I have also had outstanding help from Andy Nagy, Charlie Baum and Ed Haber. Thanks guys! Thanks to Jeri much for your help. Ralf, I wonder if you would please drop me line personally over email. I would very much like to speak with you about the project. Thanks Barry. And so my last question to you guys is - and it's difficult to be discreet and legal about the whole process, but we're all using Bellamy's work toward the ends that he intended, and will be in communication with Jenny shortly- would anyone like a copy of one or some of the songs on that LP? It is, as you know, very difficult to find. And it is a beautiful piece of work. Please email me and let me know, but do not post a thread asking as I don't know know when I'll be able to respond again. Thanks again.
