I know that some of Bill's finest albums ended up in the Harrogate Black Hole, but what happened to his first, Rough Music that was on the South Hill Park label SHP102? The only other recording I can trace of them is one by the Threadbare Consort SHP103.
Presumably Bill tried to get it released in CD form but failed (?). Did the master tapes got lost?

The online obituary that I referred to at 28 Nov 18 - 10:17 AM has now reached the printed edition.
Page 9 of the Journal section of today's "The Guardian" carries a full page obituary to Bill Caddick written by Derek Schofield and with a photo of Bill performing at our club at the Royal Oak in Lewes taken by me. The massive reaction to his death tells us all what a much-loved person he was.

I have the most wonderful recording (thanks to Radio Oxford) of Bill entertaining at the Witney Folk Club way back when. Listeninbg to the songs in a new light now. It's a wondeful memory of the man and one that has so many beautiful songs, full of wisdom. If anyone wants a copy as an MP3 file, mesage me and I'll send on or I can do a CD if you let me have an address.

A kind and talented man. It's entirely due to Bill that I ended up recording for Les Barker on ' Stones of Callenish' My part was originally written for Bill but he gave it to me. That's the sort of man he was. A talented songwriter, and a great entertainer. We will all miss him. RIP.

i finally felt able to read this thread today. thank you for sharing your memories. he spoke little about dying but did say to me one day, 'I've played JOD at so many funerals Kate, i wonder who will do it at mine?

it was John Richards and Phil Beer, we printed the words so everyone could join in.

i am hoping to publish an illustrated book of Bills best loved songs songs next year. its my way to honour and remember.

I'll never forget Bill's friendship during The Mysteries in 1985, always so welcoming in the Green Room at the National!
