the big the bad and the lonely bill wellings - mfp 1434

£7.99

Product description

From the sleeve:
There's something about the 'loner' that appeals to all of us - and that's what this album is all about.
Loners.
Big men, all of them.
Sometimes bad.
Mostly lonely.
As rugged as a ripped-open tin of dynamite, hell-raising and even killing, but somehow, somehow we feel an affinity for each one of them.
For 'Big Bad John', the mean, silent giant of a man who gave up his life for his fellows when the testing time came; for 'Tom Dooley', who killed for love, and now faces the hangman's noose at sun-up; for the Sheriff in 'High Noon', who waits alone on the silent, sun-drenched main street to face his own terrifying destiny; for the murderer who returns, too late, to 'The Green Green grass of Home'; for the flip, stogie-smoking 'King of the Road'; for 'The Boy Named Sue', who had to claw his way through life defending his name; for the pathetic cripple in Midnight Cowboy - 'Everybody's Talkin' ' about him, but all he hears is the echo of his mind.
'My Way', 'San Quentin', 'Wand'rin' Star', 'Son of Hickory Holler's Tramp' all tell of the loner, the outsider, the big, the bad and the lonely, who go through life their way.

On this album are some of the most beautiful and touching songs ever written - about some of the toughest, meanest sons-of-b****es ever born.

Also includes My Way and Sixteen Tons.

Performed by Bill Wellings
