I'm looking for info on Allan or Alan Bell. The man who wrote "Windmills". I've heard reference to him by others and wonder if there are equally good songs from him? I don't believe I've heard him mentioned in here before. ( I'm doing a thread search now as I type this however)

He was an original member of the Blackpool "Taverners" and is still very active in the Fylde area of Lancashire.

Thanks Masato, I'm only familiar with Bread and Fishes and Windmills but Fair Stood The Wind looks great. Gotta find a recording now.

There is a cracking book of Alan's songs called, would you believe, The Alan Bell Song Book! It contains lots of brilliant songs and as I only bought it a couple of years ago, I should think it is still available. I'll try and hunt it out and post the ISBN no.
