I have always loved Clifford T Ward and his music. I was a member of Friends of Clifford T Ward years ago, and have a little badge to prove it!

I simply want to say on this site, which I have just discovered, that I have always thought, and still do, that Clifford T Ward is not just the greatest British songwriter, but one of the greatest song writers altogether (although I agree he is quintessentially English). Who else has ever put lines of perfect English into such hauntingly beautiful melodies? Who else has written a song of love and described it as 'just a broken down motor car' and yet make it sound romantic? Who else could write a masterpiece of storytelling like the song 'Crisis'? No one could write a line like 'Wish I had the wherewithal to attract your attention' but Clifford T. So many of his songs are masterpieces and they have never been surpassed. I have all his albums, and although I imagine anyone who writes on this site will know his songs - if you don't you are missing out.
