Sam Larner

Cruising Round Yarmouth
(MTDL669-0)

2 CDs, 48 page booklet, 67 tracks, 149 mins duration.

The 1958/60 recordings by Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger of this wonderful Norfolk singer - 65 songs and fragments, plus four spoken passages, give a great impression of Sam's life and times - almost all of his complete recorded repertoire is here.  But, most of all, it's the startling quality of his singing which is so impressive.
