Songs from ABC Television's “Hallelujah” (Fontana TL5356)

Songs from ABC Television's “Hallelujah”
Isla Cameron, Sydney Carter, Martin Carthy, Nadia Cattouse, Johnny Scott Trio

Fontana TL5356 (LP, UK, 1966)

This album was a spin-off from the ABC Sunday evening TV series “Hallelujah”. While each TV shows explored a single theme, such as War, Romance, Protest, or Loneliness, this album contains a selection of the more than hundred songs sung on Hallelujah and therefore is not centred on a singular topic.

Musicians

Isla Cameron, Nadia Cattouse, Sydney Carter, vocals;
Martin Carthy, guitar, vocals;
Johnny Scott Trio (Johnny Scott, flute; Arthur Watts, double bass; Barry Morgan, drums)

Musical arrangement by Johnny Scott
