Peter Bellamy Sings The Barrack Room Ballads Of Rudyard Kipling

Description

Peter Bellamy was one of the most creative artists produced by the British Folk scene. He had a theory that Rudyard Kipling was influenced by Folk songs and so began giving the poems tunes. His third album of these settings based on Kipling's 'Barrack Room Ballads', became recognised as a classic. Here it is reissued for the first time in its entirety. Peter also worked on some more songs which he put together and called 'Soldiers Three' and these can be found on disc two of this double-CD-for-the-price-of-one collection. With the current military operations in Afghanistan these lyrics echo down through the decades being based as they were on the first and second Afghan Wars in the 19th Century - we are currently on the fourth!
