Description

Come Write Me down by The Copper Family of Rottingdean finally brings the legendary 1950s and early '60s Copper Family recordings to CD for the first time. These rare performances present the glorious 'Southern harmony', southern English that is, that The Coppers brought to prominence during the early part of the folk revival. The classic duet harmonies of cousins Bob and Ron Copper are featured along with previously unreleased recordings of the quartet including both their fathers, the brothers John and Jim Copper. The influence The Coppers and these recordings have had is inestimable. All this goes to make this release, arguably, the most important traditional music release this century. Come Write Me Down has been carefully remastered with astonishing results, sounding better than anyone had originally hoped for. Included are two booklets: a 60 page booklet with extensive biographies, historical notes and a 36 page book with full lyrics. With the recent sad demise of Bob, shortly after receiving national recognition by way of his MBE, this is possibly the finest archival tribute to his legacy.
