LUDLOWS - "The wind and the sea" (PYE, 1966)
This fabulous album was issued with two different overs. The original was on PYE, the second on Marble Arch (PYE Records used often to do so, just check all those reissues of Kinks and Donovan). Oddly enough, the song lists and the order differ: two songs more on the "group sleeve" version, including more extended liner notes by Joe Kennedy. I always loved the song "Ten thousand miles". The Ludlows learned it from the Australian duo Lyn & Graham McCarthy in 1964 (in the next future, I will also post this gorgeous album, "Way up from downunder", EMI Columbia 1964). The song "You were on my mind" was covered with huge sucess by an Italian group, Equipe 84 (see at the bottom of this page). The man on the right is Jim McCann, who released two solo LPs, the second of which was "McCanned!", for the glorious Polydor Folk Mill, 1972, and went eventually to join the Dubliners. On the cover notes he tells where the group name comes from, "The Ludlow massacre", a Woody Guthrie song. Both my copies are Mono. I don't think there was ever any stereo....
Dear friends, for these first times, you will find a PASSWORD applied to my files. It's because the blog is still under construction, I need some time to check whether some Inquisition organization jumps on me with menaces... Therefore, just wait more or less till the 10th of December, and all PWs will be released. However, should I in the meanwhile start to get problems of legal order, well, I will have to say adieu to you all, and "farewell, farewell" to this blog.
Sorry, I have no possibility to publish good scans of the LP covers, my time is always so reduced... What I can do is taking pictures "on the run", so that at least you can have an idea of the covers. This 'ghostly' presence of my glove is necessary, I need to know if my pics are used and/or forwarded somewhere else.
Kiss, your Vanessa
