  'MESSENGERS': This is a double CD of over 40 covers (Cliff's songs sung by other artists) of CTW songs. Each CD has over 70 mins playing time. Some of the source material is very rare indeed, one single even being loaned from Australia.


  'MUSICALLY SPEAKING': This is an hour long interview which Cliff gave in the 80s on radio, together with his own choice of music which is quite remarkable. A kind of Desert Island Discs. The original copy was made available by Carol Quaile. Also on the CD is Carol's phone interview with Cliff in another radio programme also with Nick St. George.

N.B: As of March 2003 this CD is being supplied, along with 'We Could Be Talking' (see below), as a DOUBLE CD by the fan club.


  'WE COULD BE TALKING' - CTW INTERVIEWS - CD:

Compiled by the former editor of 'Waves', Clive Winstanley, this CD contains highlights of Clifford T Ward's radio and television interviews since 1972. Excerpts from his songs provide the backing to his spoken words. The interviews have been edited to talk you through his musical life from the early days with the Secrets to attempting to come to terms with MS in the 90s. Below is a copy of the CD 'insert' notes:

We Could Be Talking is an interview CD which tells the story of Clifford T. Ward's life and music using highlights from radio and television interviews given during an eventful career as a solo artist. We Could Be Talking will add to your appreciation of Clifford T. Ward's music and of course the man himself.

What does he remember about touring in the early 1960s? Who were his influences? Why Clifford T. Ward? There's Clifford T. on religion; Clifford T. on education; Clifford T. on cover versions of his songs; Clifford T. on poetry. Songwriting methods are explored and Clifford speaks candidly about MS. Justin Hayward explains his love of Clifford's music and Jimmy Savile introduces 'Scullery' live on Top of The Pops in January 1974. Hear in full the jingles Clifford recorded for Radio Trent in 1985 and the Irish radio interview when 'Marron's Glance' was premiered and so much more.

The narrative originates from sources spanning three decades and the sound quality varies accordingly but this should not spoil your enjoyment and may even add a touch of authenticity! Promotional films, television appearances in the UK and Ireland, Capital Radio BRMB, Radio Merseyside, Radio Leeds, Radio 2 (Michael Aspel, no less) and RTE have all made the compilation of this CD possible. Thanks also to all the fans who sent in tapes. Very little archive material survives in the official vaults and the CD has been mastered from the best quality materials available.

So wind up the clock, turn the TV set off and listen to what the man said. He could be talking to you . . .

N.B: As of March 2003 this CD is being supplied, along with 'Musically Speaking' (see above), as a DOUBLE CD by the fan club.

  'LOVE IN THE SONG' - BY JAMES DAVEY - CD:

James Davey has been a close friend of Cliff's for many years, his singing voice is similar to Cliff's and he has spent much time working with his music. Following James' 'Evening' tape (no longer available) is this CD 'Love In The Song', which contains more of Cliff's songs sung by James. The cost is £12.50 (inc. p&p UK). Below are the 'insert' notes accompanying the CD, and the track listing:

Over the last few years I have really enjoyed performing Cliff's songs. I have always felt very confident, not in my own ability, but in singing such well crafted and meaningful songs. This CD is a collection of what we thought were our best performances from the first gig at the Horn and Trumpet in Worcester through to Dave Johnson's studio in Loughborough. It has not always been easy to perform Cliff's songs in front of his loyal fans and Cliff himself hanging on every word and note but I felt it was the least I could do for someone who is a dear friend and who's music still touches me deeper than anyone else's.
Cliff's music is as fresh today as it was when he first wrote it and it has given me a great deal of pleasure.
I hope you enjoy listening to this collection of songs as much as we did performing them.
Best wishes, James.

  BOTH OF US (RE-RELEASE ON CD!)

Re-released in May 2003, Both Of Us, one of Cliff's finest albums, now appears on CD for the first time! The CD carries an additional track on which 'Bittersweet - the CTW Story' author, Dave Cartwright, reads a very touching and poignant excerpt from the book. This track is of a 20 minutes duration. He has also composed, in his usual manner, a wonderful set of notes to accompany the CD, and these are presented on the case insert.

Additionally, it needs to be said that the sound quality of the tracks is significantly improved from that on the original, 1983, vinyl album! For a more detailed review of this re-release, return to the 'main page', then from the album list, click on 'Both Of Us'.

The CD was produced by Cherry Red Records, and is now readily available in the shops! Cat. No: CDM RED 228
