Wow thanks for your excellent and fulsome review Derek. I have to await a birthday to get my copy Sad but you have certainly made me look forward to it, which at my age is quite an achievement Smile)

Yes, great review, Derek!

My studied negativity was always calculated to stimulate discussion but I never imagined that anyone would come up with anything like this.

I'll give it another listen at the weekend, when I am more of a mood for it, I promise! Just one other criticism, if I may - a lyric sheet would have been great!

Many thanks both.

I agree a lyric sheet would have been very useful- particularly with the album as my eyes struggle with CD-sized offerings, but they are available here:-

The blurb on the Alan  Hull Songbook website states that this may be the first in a series of cd releases. Do we know how many unreleased sons were discovered?

I don't know how many songs but there are "120 or so quarter inch tapes". Prolific is the word.

Thanks for pointing that out, Derek, I should have thought of that.

The album will probably make a lot more sense now that I can read the lyrics, which, from a glance, are very characteristically Alan.

BTW, from my first cursory glance I notice that Alan came up with the 'Snowman' concept almost 20 years before Raymond Briggs!

Well I just got my hands on my copy; one of 6 Cds received today. (music or whisky is a family birthday rule) and the first one I played was "some other time" I am no Allan Jones or even "Derek" so I shan't attempt a critical analysis on only one listen, but I will say that I was thrilled with what I heard. I have this on my play list on repeat now, and can only thank Dave and Ian for their excellent and painstaking work, and of course all of you guys on the blog for helping to keep the words and music of Alan and the Lindisfarne wider family alive. Long may it continue! Very Happy
