London Folk Song Cellar.

We are near the end of a 40-year project to recover and restore recordings of London Folk Song Cellar from the 1960s. Many of our recordings have come from transcription discs. But we also have off-air recordings from New Zealand, USA, BFBS - Germany, Kuwait, etc., and Australia.

The LFSC was a fictitious folk club based in the Cellar Bar (and adjacent room Trefusis) at Cecil Sharp House. It was run by Peter Kennedy of the EFDSS. Recording sessions took place in blocks of 6 weeks at a time in 1966 and 1967, with a specially invited audience. The shows were designed to sound like typical coffee bar folk clubs of that era. Comperes were Robin Hall and Jimmie MacGregor.

There were 39 episodes in all, each 43 mins long. These were distributed around the world by BBC Transcription Services on acetate discs. We are still looking for episodes 28, 31 and 39.

The final files can be accessed from:

https://ulozto.net/hledej?q=lfsc - download for free.

Wot no Sandy Denny? From her current Wikipedia page:

'Denny made the first of many appearances for the BBC at Cecil Sharp House on 2 December 1966 on the Folk Song Cellar programme where she accompanied herself on two traditional songs: "Fir a Bhata" and "Green Grow the Laurels" ' - some previous discussion at /mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=133176

Also, are the dates (recording and/or broadcast) for the above sessions listed somewhere??

(Sorry I have not been following this and previous related threads as much as I might)...

Sandy Denny nor Anne Briggs are included in the lists above because their tracks have been issued on CD or EP which are available commercially in far better quality than our amateurish recordings.

Our recordings are mainly off-air from AM complete with heterodyne whistles and clicks albeit cleaned up. Or acetates that have scratches and holes (from needle drops) and with grooves full of dust. Nothing we have is remotely broadcast quality.

Sadly there are no documentary records of actual recording dates. Such documentary records, if they exist, are not in the public domain. We know that the recording sessions were in 6 weekly blocks. The recordings were made in Trefusis - the basement function room at C#H. The whole idea of a folk club was a complete fiction, an invention by Peter Kennedy. The 'audience' was specially invited but it is believed some recordings were made sans audience. Many 'takes' would have been required.

The BBC UK tx dates are on Genome - but only for episodes 1 to 6 and 8, not 7 and not 9 to 39. Some tx dates have been recorded for when the NZBC National Programme aired the transcription discs in the late 1970s.

The BFBS Archives have some off-air recordings dated 1970s.

The whole series was aired in Australia and even Papau New Guinea. Also in the USA. And in Germany incl. Europe and the Middle East on BFBS FM.

The information above comes from the BLSA Cadenza db. The information for episodes 31 and 36 is wrong. Cellar Full Of Folk is mentioned in many places as the source for Sandy's tracks on LFSC. But CFOF recordings are dated in Genome as being 1967. LFSC is dated as being 1966. So how could tracks from CFOF be used for LFSC?

There's some very inaccurate and misleading research out there regarding Sandy's recordings.

To confuse matters further the BBC Archives have files of out-takes of singers who never appeared on LFSC, but their documentary records state that they were. These are out-takes entitled "Folk Cellar" and are dated 1965. These include a session by John Pearse - who never appeared on LFSC. The out-rakes from 1965 could never have been used for LFSC (1966) nor CFOF (1967).

As an aside it would be great if the BBC and EFDSS could re-air the LFSC episodes. It is C#H's 80th anniv. this year (or something). The British Library has a full set of transcription discs in far better condition than anything we have.

As an aside if anyone wishes to voice objections to this project the files can be very quickly taken down and can be deleted permanently. All source materials including the acetates have been willed to C#H for their archives.

Hi Chris,

You wrote:

But it would still be nice to know from which sessions they emanate (if you have that info) - from a discographically completist perspective of course, irrespective of re-releases or not...

(Also noting that you do include Anne Briggs as a contributor to LFSC 16)

RE the above, on its listing for Sandy Denny, Attic Tracks vol. 3, discogs has the following information:

        BBC Light Programme “Cellar Full of Folk”, rec. March 6, 1967, broadcast March 18, 1967
A11        Hold On To Me Babe
Written-By – Tom Paxton

BBC World Service “Folk Song Cellar”, host Alex Campbell, rec. December 2, 1966, broadcast January 11, 1967
A12        Green Grow The Laurels
Written By – Traditional
A13        The Boatman
Written-By – Traditional

So (if my supposition above is correct, and the dates given are accurate), the last 2 dates cited might be applicable to LFSC 31.

For general info: I found this image of an actual disc (LFSC 13) on an old "for sale" listing, if anyone is interested in what they look(ed) like:

Also correlating the artists cited on the 7 (only?) entries on Genome, with broadcast dates, it seems the following might apply:

LFSC 01 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 13 August 1966 (and also featured Anne Briggs, perforing 3 songs of the 4 recently released on "Four Songs", Fledg'ling WING 1006)

LFSC 02 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 20 August 1966

LFSC 03 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 27 August 1966

LFSC 04 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 3 September 1966

LFSC 05 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 10 September 1966

LFSC 06 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 17 September

LFSC 08 broadcast in the UK on Saturday 24 September 1966.

(why the last date mentioned featured LFSC 08 and not 07 is a mystery to me...)

I tried to follow the links to your spreadsheet (?of tracks and performers) as noted above, a few years late, but the links have expired it seems. Perhaps you could re-post it here if you still have a version accessible, or post it as a web page on a server elsewhere - or someone (I could do it) can convert from a spreadsheet to plain text for posting here if you wish.

A more definitive account of the Sandy Denny recordings is here:

http://sandydennylist.blogspot.com/2009/12/bbc-sessions-1971-73.html

Her two songs were on 31 and 36. These were the total of her involvement with LFSC at C#H - not a lot.

====

Yes - the acetates of 1-13 were sold by a guy in London. They were Hartwest copies from the USA. They were shot to pieces, deep scratches, needle drop holes, grooves full of sh$t causng hiss and needle skips, needle skips from broken grooves, pops and crackles. I know - it was I who bought them. It took over a year to clean them, digitise them, then edit the files to remove the imperfections. The needle skips were a nightmare, but off-air reel-reel tapes had been researched and obtained by Mitch and Robyn P. in NZ, and the skipped grooves could be replaced by splicing in snippets from their tapes.

====

Yes - I've told the guy on eBay that £500 for ONE acetate is a tad high, especially since we already have that disc from another source. He refused my offer of a lesser price. But that is what he paid and he wanted a return - which he'll never get. Nearly as bad as the BBC Hawkwind acetate at £1,500 - ridiculous prices.   

====

Actually Sandy didn't have very much to do with the LFSC and recordings at C#H - despite her talent, she only had but 2 tracks on the whole series. Many of the other artists appeared many times.

====

BTW the recordings were not done 'live' so to speak. The recordings were done in 6-week sessions with and without an audience, and then edited to sound like a coffee bar folk club with spliced in audience applause. The whole series was a complete fiction. We have out-takes of artists who didn't even appear such as John Pearse.   

====

Anne Briggs had three songs on LFSC - 01 x 1/ 16 x 2, that is on two different episodes. This does not mean that she was at C#H two times. Likely she was only there once (maybe like Sandy), recorded her songs (and maybe some backups), and the best were then edited into two different episodes. She has recently issued these recordings on EP, but they sound strange because there are background noises which somewhat detract from her performances. They were recorded in 1966 after all.

Although this was an imaginary club, there was in fact a real C# Cellar Folk club, which if memory serves was on a Saturday night. I used to go regularly when it was run by Jack & Margaret King. Late 60's I think. Saw many good singers there, and made my first disastrous attempt at floor singing. Disastrous because I had been down to the pub in the interval, and had consumed a few too many beers there.

Yes - there was indeed a folk club in the Cellar Bar at C#H. It went on for many years, indeed it might be that the pandemic finally closed it. There was also Folk London's Cellar Upstairs Folk Club - an off-shoot? The real folk club had little if nothing to do with Peter Kennedy's imaginary LFSC radio programme.

John Penhallow says ...

http://sandydennylist.blogspot.com/2009/12/bbc-sessions-1971-73.html

"The BBC's policy during the '60's and '70's was to include a quota of BBC studio recorded songs to meet a Musicians Union requirement about work and exposure for British artists otherwise Britain would be overrun by those damned Americans and the rock & roll and Boogie Woogie Music! So there is a legacy of recordings that has included the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Pentangle and of course Fairport, Fotheringay & Sandy. They all trouped into the BBC's Studios around London and laid down 4-5 tracks per session, in one take mono originally, without overdubs and with minimal production gizmo's on hand. So it was a great learning curve for the bands that went through the routine, you had to have a disciplined approach for the Beeb. Once the recordings were done then the 4 tracks would be sprinkled in to the playlist of a 2 or 3 hour music radio show on Radio On. They then got passed around to other shows, got played on the BBC World Service Short Wave Folk Programmes and had acetates (short life 12" records) made that were shipped out to the "Colonies" national broadcasters like Australia's ABC, NZBC, Canada's CBC, Hong Kong's HKBC and a few others who had agreements to play them whenever and destroy them after 8 years. The Folk Song Cellar tracks on our Attic Tracks Vol. 3 cassette come from an acetate NOT destroyed but kept in the archives at the ABC in Perth, WA, and copied for me in their studios by a Fairport Friendly presenter, producer and penfriend who also sent me some Ralph McTell, ISB and John Martyn shows from the Cambridge Folk Festivals in the early 80's - damm good stuff."

BBC World Service was nothing to do with London Folk Song Cellar. Alex Campbell was never the host for LFSC - the hosts were always Robin Hall & Jimmie MacGregor.

LFSC was produced by and for BBC Transcription Services - a completely separate entity to BBC WS.

LFSC was never aired on Short Wave, only from acetates / transcription discs sold to overseas radio stations by BBC TS or Hartwest (USA).

Sadly there are very few CFOF recordings extant. And John Penhallow explcitly states that two recordings of Sandy Denny came from LFSC acetates in Perth (which we have ccpies of). So the hypothesis is that these two Sandy Denny recordings on LFSC 31 and 36 actually came from CFOF - despite this latter being a folk programme from 1967 well after the LFSC series of 1966. And if the recordings came from CFOF then Sandy could not have appeared on LFSC and indeed never reocrded at C#H as is stated on so many websites.

These dates do not correlate with other information for Sandy's appearances on CFOF on Genome.

"Hold On To Me Babe" and "Blues Run the Game": from "Cellar Full of Folk", broadcast(?) BBC World Service, 6 March 1967

Actually BBC World Service never carried LFSC.

And Genome does not list World Service airings.

We have 25% - all artistes are missing tracks

We have about 75% incl .Sandy Denny, but other artistes are missing.
        
LFSC 39        Featured artists: The Watersons, Sydney Carter, Tessa Clifford, Dave Swarbrick and Martin Carthy, Robin Hall & Jimmie MacGregor.

We have about 70%, but other artistes are missing.
