I've just recently bought Clifford T Ward's second album "Home Thoughts From Abroad" and really enjoyed it and was wondering does anyone know what tv performances of his survive I know he didn't do many as he didn't like touring thanks for any info.
Unless I imagined it I'm pretty sure I've seen a TOTP studio recording of 'Scullery' that breaks down mid-performance with a technical problem, before being re-started.
Incidentally if you listen to the Home Thoughts album's title track on heapdphones, have you noticed that during the quiet piano intro, just before Cliff starts singing, you can hear what sounds like some kind of radio or taxi interference?
I was actually listening to Home Thoughts as I was reading your reply but not on my headphones next time I will maybe something happening in the background as the track was being recorded. Thanks for the info on the TOTP Scullery I do have a Scullery from OGWT and I believe he did another song from that show. He also did 4 songs from a BBC 2 show called "Songs For Searching" from 1976 but not sure if this show still exists or not thanks for the info, Steve.
