I'm guessing most of you will know of this.  If you don't, do make sure you get it...it's essential reading.

Some 'recent' (2012) photos here, taken for the Guitar Mag photo shoot, plus some that go right back to the IOW festival!

Enjoy!  Grin

Quote from article in 'Western Morning News':

"One of Ralph's current projects is an album of Dylan Thomas poems set to music; another is a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Maartin Allcock about the First World War. And, in time for the tour, he has Volume Three of his Six Songs For Six Strings box set ready to roll in the key of G.

"Oh, and watch this space for news of a new Alphabet Zoo album featuring many of the songs Ralph wrote for the beloved children's TV series of the same name back in the 1980s."

So I guess the 3rd Songs for Six strings will be available on the tour.

I found it a tad confusing, at first, that RAlph already has/had an album out entitled Songs for Six Strings. (Live0.

Looking at the Ralph shop it looks as though Alphabet Zoo is repackaged version of what we already have, ie no Daphne or Lorna...everyone scorned her again,  Cry

Yes, it's the 1993 'The Complete Alphabet Zoo' set that was first issued on the 10th anniversary of the TV show. It was repackaged as 'Alphabet Zoo' in 2001, and has now been re-released for the 30th anniversary with new cover artwork by Peter Thaine. Despite Ralph's self-deprecation of some of the not-yet-recorded songs, these 27 wonderful tracks are now available again to introduce yet another generation to the McTell catalogue.

It's a bit old, but here's an article about Ralph's visit to the House of Common's to receive his life time achievement award. Seems he wasn't going to let the (then) prime minister get his own way Grin  Well done Ralph!

Hi all, I have a favor to ask. I am working on a little project and need some info regarding Around The Wild Cape Horn. Too many cds to buy these days which means I have yet to pick up a copy of Somewhere Along The Road. I really have a lot of Ralph's stuff to catch up on! All I ask is if there are any notes to the song in question that Ralph writes, could someone let me know what they are? I do not need the lyrics. Absolute full attribution will go to Ralph if any quotes are used directly. I just would like to know what Ralph himself said about the song. Thanks in advance!

Robert, the CD insert has the lyrics but no notes. The storyline is taken from an old black-and-white film of the Peking's voyage, to which a commentary had been added years later by a crew member. This might be of interest.
