The Bard of the Coalfields,
This review is from: Tommy Armstrong Of Tyneside (Audio CD)
Armstrong was not a recording artist but a poet whose rambling were published as broadsides during the Victorian era and a typical character of countless Catherine Cookson novels
He lived util 1919 when recorded sound was in its infancy and WW1 had just ended
Here his poems have instruments added and are performed by 60s folk singers.
Originally an LP on Topic it was recorded in Co Durham
Its a good job the words are included for the sake of those who don't understand Geordie
