Dear Roy, Are we then supposed to buy this new Cd sight unseen? A track listing surely should be possible?

On Sat Jan 25 14:14:40 GMT 2003, Howard Coleman ( (Loughborough, UK)) from said:

Roy, I totally agree with Janine. We must have a track listing including a mention of any alternate versions. Otherwise, you may lose several potential buyers ! Or is there a reason for keeping us in the dark ? Regards to all. Howard.

My name is Clifford T.Ward, and I am a three-year-old racehorse. My owner, Alan Kenworthy, loves the music of Clifford T.Ward and wants me to go into racing in honour of his beloved Clifford. When I win, the voice of Clifford T.Ward will be heard by everyone at the races. My sire Silver Wizard was a top-class sprinter and miler and my dam Moonduster won on the flat and over hurdles, and has already borne winners. I want to go to an excellent young trainer called Kirsty Boutflower in Oxfordshire. Kirsty is very keen to have me because I am good material and my brothers and sisters have already won as two-year-olds. I will be on lease for 6 months in the spring. My racing owners will be called Clifford T.Ward racing, and each member will have to pay about £90 per month for a share in my career. If I can find more than ten owners this may be reduced. If this sounds like fun, please email Alan at, or Kirsty at for details. For me, the best is yet to come, but remember I can't race without your support. Clifford.

I was wondering why Roy has been keeping a low profile. This CD, 'Work In Progress' sounds fascinating!

I will send my money to Roy for this CD. Is it a limited edition? If so will they be numbered and certified? I know I will be!

I wish to reserve a low number. Preferably Number 1.

Roy, don't forget my shower door. The water is spraying all over the carpet every time I shower. Ring me ASAP.

This new CD is great news for all CTW fans everywhere, whatever it may contain.

Best wishes to all fans of CTW all around the world. Let's all hope that we can help to put a kick up the backside of all radio stations to play the music of The Maestro.

Its been 4 days now Roy. Surely plenty of time to type 12 song titles? You DID say you knew what they were! Janine

On Wed Jan 29 13:29:33 GMT 2003, Rob Townsend ( said:

So, Roy, if the tracklist is not forthcoming, give us all a little background information regarding the recordings. At what period in Cliff's life were they made, are they all home demo songs, that is, say piano and vocal, or did they find their way into the recording studio. We need answers, Roy!!!.

Love and peace,

Dear readers.

We have not completed the selection process for the forthcoming CD of CTW material. It will contain songs performed by CTW that we all know and love and they will all be different versions and recordings to those already issued. Some of the songs will be CTW at the piano, singing songs from New England Days era. These performances are very special, full of vitality and beauty. More information will follow as soon as it is available.

There's something very "fishy" going on here. Roy has done a "Reggie Perrin". Still no news on the tracklisting of Cliff's CD, Stephen's shower goes unattended and, a "Bates Motel" opens up for business in Kiddie! can only mean one thing. Roy? Norman? are you there?

On Thur Jan 30 17:05:13 GMT 2003, Stephen Bagust (Worcestershire. said:

To everyone who is asking Roy to divulge the secrets of the CD. Keep up the pressure - he will eventually crack!

I spoke to Roy today and his PC is on the blink so he has not yet seen all the messages.

I have so enjoyed reading all the messages. We seem to have found a rich vein of humour running through the messages. Why shouldn't we all use it as a 'chat room'? Perhaps we could put some details of ourselves into the messages.

Speak soon

Regards to all, Stephen.

Hi Roy, While the others are having a go, I had better get in my penny's worth.......It is only fair to make this new CD available to all fans, considering us poor souls across the Atlantic. It is bad enough that we have such a limited source....PLEASE, with syrup on top. S. x

Bought your albums on vinyl all those years ago and still have them. Now collecting on CD. Oh Cliff what have you done to me. Playing Bittersweet as I type this. Am close to tears. How I would love to get hold of your biography. Cliff, love you lots. Lots of love to Pat and the family. Your music lives on forever.

Hi There all CTW Fans,
Sorry I've not been in touch but my Phone line has been down for over a week (I love the speed with which BT do there repairs. I hope they use the same speed when sending my next bill). After the odd comment or two i have decided to let you see some of the tracks that will be on Cliff's new CD, so tune in next week for the first instalment.
Take care Roy

My husband was in a group in the l970s, after they'd argued and practised for the next gig, in our home, whilst my three year old slept, ha ha, we'd all sit around in the front room and listen to Clifford T. Ward L.Ps. especially his Home thoughts from Abroad, which is so lovely, his music seemed to fit our every mood, his gentle voice and the songs were more like poetry. What a great time it was, we were young, loved music, and we had his lovely voice to sooth us, unforgettable.

Just been reading some of the comments placed shortly after Clifford's tragic death, I am sat here in tears once again. What can I say? He is a legend that will always live in my heart and the hearts of thousands of others who have been touched by his music. I was never fortunate enough to have met Clifford as i am only 19, but i am forever thankfull to him, and my father for introducing me to his works. Home Thoughts From Abroad made me realise how strong emotions can be. God bless you clifford, I sincerely hope I may meet you yet.

I saw CTW on Whistle Test the other night and I'd forgotten how good his music was. I loved Scullery, but also all the other songs he wrote. Some I haven't heard but would like to. So sorry to read that he has died. Really enjoyed the web sites with lots of information, and lyrics...
