Jon reminisces, “I borrowed A Song For Every Season on vinyl from Winchester library as a teenager, and for some reason this stuck in my mind. Unfortunately I had to return it and I’ve only recently got round to tracking that set down on ebay. Not cheap! Worth it though.”
This has a jolly, music hall feel from whence it probably originated, although is another collected by the Coppers. You’ll see a reference to Jon’s precious vinyl set on Mainly Norfolk and can also link to Mudcat, but again there isn’t much on this save that is was a very popular song in the C19th, often appearing in a mockney style dialect. A quick sweep of ebay brings up a single album sampler of the boxed set at £8.99 starting price, but with no track listing… I’m almost tempted.
