Cyril Tawney

Massive respect to Talking Elephant, who have put out CDs of two early 70s LPs by West Country folk god Cyril Tawney. I totally love these Argo label old school reverb-free rarities – A MAYFLOWER GARLAND andĀ CHILDRENS SONGS FROM DEVON AND CORNWALL – who couldn’t with those mighty pix of Cyril on ye Plymouth Hoe on the cover. ( A Mayflower Garland is a bit weird and has spoken word sections, but the final track is the definitive version of The Oggie Man – so you gotta have it.) For further info get yourself overĀ here.
