Here are the words from Robin Dransfield's Tidewave LP.

Mick



TIDEWAVE
(Annie Briggs)

Oh, you came to stay and the day was brighter,
The way much lighter.
You brought your joy, your music too,
We'd laugh and sing and play the Summer through.
And with time and faces your love for all things grew
But the day was growing colder, cold Winter reaching you.

And the words of a song were the only exception
To your lonely reflection.
You brought so much and your friends to me
With your friends you tried to share your own eternity.
And nobody knowing how you wanted things to be,
But the day was growing darker and you couldn't really see.

And when the fortune-teller spoke, you held lightly in your hand
The mirror of your mind,
Which you thought to be true to when you'd see
The days ahead were nothing but transparency.
An image of the no-man's land, the sun at the edge of the sea,
Tides came and departed, took you away from me.

Oh, you came to stay and the day was brighter
The way much lighter.
You brought your joy, your music too,
We'd laugh and sing and play the Summer through.
And with time and faces your love for all things grew
But the day was growing colder, cold Winter reaching you.

The sleeve notes say: "TIDEWAVE is by the elusive Annie Briggs who wrote it, I think, for Johnny Moynihan. It has a sympathy which reminds me of those who have seen others, especially me, through the hard times. Too numerous to mention"

Tidewave is a great song on a great album but one of my faves on there is "Fair Maids Of February"

Such a lovely song that I think if I'd written it I'd probably feel like never writing another song, ever!

Robin Dransfield's songwriting has been, to an extent, eclipsed by that of brother Barry. Fair Maids of February is indeed a lovely song, as is the extraordinarily sensitive It's Dark in Here.

What's truly amazing about the album Tidewave, a quarter of a century on, is how ahead of its time it was with the use of the White Shield Brass ensemble, the hurdy-gurdy of Christian Gourhan and Lea Nicholson's concertina.

I've asked Topic about a CD reissue of this, and of Barry's Bowin' and Scrapin' but there are not, unfortunately, 'any plans' to do so.

Aye! Topic should maybe have a serious rethink!

There is an amazing 'Dransfields' almost boxed set available at the moment but 'Tidewave' (the album) should be CD available

Maybe we should start a "Get Topic To Reissue 'Tidewave'" thread

What think you all??

A mass march on Stroud Green to give Tony Engle a serious talking to might do it. That and persuading Bros Dransfield to do a few gigs...

Well let's go for it!!!

I know that Gary Blakely of "Band Of Two" is a mate of Barry D's so I will 'suss' things in that direction.

In The Meantime go to http://www.topicrecords.co.uk/ and let them know

I will start a new thread on this too

No doubt old news for those who were looking for it but Robin Dransfields' Tidewave album is available on cd as part of a two cd set called "A Lighter Touch." Still sounds great.

I talked to Robin Dransfield at the BBC Folk Awards. No plans for a Dransfield duo reunion, but perhaps Robin could be tempted out of his Cornish retirement.

From a previous thread posted by TerriM in 2000

Fair maids of February, why don't you come out today?
Fair maids of February, why don't you come out to play?
Oh we've seen you, oh, we've seen you
When the air was sweet and made us grow
From the fastness of winter, the first flower to venture
And now we're lying beneath the snow

Our dresses are torn and tattered, There's nothing here you'd wish to see
Our faces are lined with sorrow I'm sure you would agree
We used to love dancing, we used to love dancing
So many. many years ago
But with no-one to court us, our courage has left us
And now we're dying beneath the snow

But we are rooted, we are your children We don't have the power to choose
So take heed in February, or your fate will be like ours
Oh, we told you, oh, we told you
So many, many times before
But you didn't believe us and you'll never believe us
And now we're dying beneath the snow

CC

And now the $64k question: does anyone have any chords, or idea what key is used on Robin's recording on the fabulous Tidewave? Thanks
