Tony Rose: Exe (Chudleigh Roots CR003)

Exe
Tony Rose

Chudleigh Roots CR003 (CD, UK, August 2008)

Tony's children, Laura and Diggory, have put together this fine CD with the help of Phil Beer. It is a wonderful tribute to their father reminding us of the loss to the folk scene of such a great performer and sensitive interpreter of song. With so little of Tony's work available on CD, this re-mastered collection of live recordings—most of them in the 1960s before hist first album, and a few between 1978 and 1981—is a must have album.

Restoration overseen by Phil Beer at Riverside studios.

Musicians

Tony Rose, vocals, English concertina [1-2, 9, 12, 15-16], guitar [3, 8, 13];
