Subject: Tune Req: Don Bilston, Farewell to steam
From: GUEST,Jan

Hello all,

I am new to this forum, so I hope I'm doing this right - please forgive (and enlighten me) if I don't..
I am looking for the tunes of the songs on Don Bilston's album 'Farewell to steam' (Transatlantic Records Xtra1084, 1969-70, to be precise). I have found the lyrics of two of its songs (The billycock hat and The fireman's song) in the (very impressive!) Mudcat database, but I am searching for the music.

Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Can't remember off-hand where we've got 'Billy-Cocked Hat' - in print somewhere - don't know who's recorded it.

Pete Coe recorded 'The Fireman's Song' on his 1997 CD 'Long Company' (BASH CD45). Worth having for the rest of the CD, as well as 'The Fireman's Song'. If you have difficulty getting hold of it, PM me and I'll let you know how you can get it.

Sorry, I wasn't being clear.. I actually do have the album, but I am looking for the guitar tabs, or any other form of sheet music. Thanks for your help though!

Many years ago I obtained from the publishers of the music the melody line and words to about 6 of the songs from the album (without chords). I've since worked out chords for some of the other songs also.
Anyone still interested?
I don't know of any other albums by Dob Bilston, but prior to the LP he had produced an EP with four of the songs from the LP (different versions).
Hope this is of interst to someone.

Hello, I am Don Bilston,s niece, and am in touch with him quite alot, I am absolutely delighted that he is so popular, you never expect your own to be so well known. Anyway, anyone wants song lyrics I will try and get them for you.

Music is something that should be shared.

Julia
