Notes

Michael Grosvenor Myer noted in the Mudcat Café thread Peter Bellamy recordings? :

It should be pointed out for such abroad etc. who might not get the reference, that the title of that album was a play on a well-known UK advertising slogan of the time for Mr Kipling's Cakes, “Mr Kipling makes exceedingly good cakes”: a slogan obviously expressed in faux-simple terms to give a period feel back to the great days of Empire, of which the brand name itself was presumably supposed also to be redolent.
