Thanks Keith, I’ll take that back to the family and will figure out which way to proceed.Keith Jordan wrote: ↑Sat Oct 03, 2020 11:04 pm An acoustic version of the full song would be much welcomed. I would be very happy to feature it here on NPF. Many thousands of people have read the article on EMH already so there would be a good audience for it. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
I’d also like to ask the person who has the vinyl if there are any other demos that my dad might have recorded in the collection. According to my dad there were a number of demos of his music recorded through Jamarnie.
Two tracks that he remembered, one was called Decisions, and the other was called 8 o’clock Winter. Of course we have the sheet music and other recordings of those two songs in our archive.
There were other songs recorded with different engineers at different studios. At one point dad was marketed as Prock Harson, and recorded A Whiter Shade of Pale that went to number one in Germany. It was all the rage back in the day, note the play on name of Procol Harum. He also recorded some Beatles tracks.
I’d like to take a moment to shout out to ‘singing a song in the morning’ Felix Atagong Who has meticulously researched my dad and posted a wonderful webpage in his honor ( and mined my website for pictures of Billy, it’s OK LOL ) it’s such a lovely thing, and I apologize for not getting back in touch when reaching out for more info. My mum passed away a couple of years ago so we’ve been dealing with quite a bit of grief, and my dad injured his back last year, so we’ve had a lot on our plates.
Here’s a link to my YouTube channel Jumaris Music Collection, that features dad singing. Recorded at STV, it’s a professional production filmed in the late 80s.
Not sure if I’m doing the linking correctly so apologies if the link doesn’t come through properly.
Early morning Henry is our favourite of all of dad‘s songs because of the poetry and symbolism of the lyrics.
