The Copper Family has got to be the seminal English harmony group. For too many years, there's been a paucity of Copper recordings: Folk-Legacy has a cassette, and there are Coppersongs2 and Coppersongs3, CDs featuring Bob Copper and the latest generation of Coppers.

Topic has just released (re-released) a remastered CD of the Copper Family of the 50's and 60s. Here's the track list:


THE COPPER FAMILY COME WRITE ME DOWN

6 Sweep! Chimney Sweep! [Bob & Jim]
7 Two Young Brethren [Bob & Ron]
8 The Brisk and Bonny Lad [Bob & Jim]
9 The Month Of May [Bob & Ron]
10 The Honest Labourer [Ron]
11 The Birds In The Spring [Bob & Ron]

Thanks Dick for drawing attention to this CD, I've already ordered my copy from Topic. The Copper Family are central figures in English Folk Song and were strangely absent from the Topic Voice of the People CDs. This should make up for that omission, and delight all lovers of traditional singing.

It's just arrived in the post from Topic - it's a fantastic CD, with all original recordings and two great inserts - one with comprehensive lyrics and notes on the songs, and the other with a history of the Copper family.
No doubt about it, this has to be one of the 'must have' releases of the year.

My Official unofficial Coppers site has a page for this CD with links to ALL of the words of the songs.
