1993 film 'Sirens' & Grey Funnel Line

DigiTrad:
CHEERING THE QUEEN
CHICKEN ON A RAFT
CHINESE MAIDEN'S LAMENT
COAL SHIP SONG
CYRIL SAID IT ALL BEFORE
DIESEL AND SHALE
FIVE FOOT FLIRT
GREY FUNNEL LINE
IN THE SIDINGS
JENNY WREN BRIDE
OGGY MAN
ONLY SEVENTEEN
SALLY, FREE AND EASY
SAMMY'S BAR or THE LAST BOAT'S A'LEAVIN
SIX FEET OF MUD
THAT'S WHAT IT'S LIKE IN THE NAVY
THE A25 SONG
THE CRUISE OF THE CALABAR
THE LEAN AND UNWASHED TIFFY
THERE ARE NO LIGHTS ON OUR CHRISTMAS TREE
THREE MEN OF EDDYSTONE
VANITY

Delighted to note that two verses of Cyril Tawney's 'Grey Funnel Lines', I think sung by Maddy Prior, are used as an intro to the 1993 film, 'Sirens', starring Hugh Grant.

I wonder if Cyril ever got the royalties.

Sirens

I think that was the Silly Sisters' recording, wasn't it (Maddy and June)?

As I was saying - Guest above - dizlexic fingers.

Been to the Blue Mountains, been to the Studio, been to the House / Estate.

It's all rather wonderful, even now.

Just enjoy the film and lets not get too heavy.

Hate to say it but the Australians do this sort of folky stuff a lot better than the Brits. But then the Brits in position to produce folk included material are not interested.

Maybe Sting's work with the Wilsons will open a few doors.

We can only hope.
