A previously unreleased album of solo recordings by the popular Trad Jazz ragtime pianist, Ray Foxley.
Ray Foxley was one of a small number of piano players to gain a reputation on the Trad Jazz scene in the s. He worked on the continent for a few years and in the s and 90s he saw a new lease of life on the Trad Jazz festival circuit and the Jazz theme weekends at holiday camps and hotels. He was a popular figure at these events until his death in This CD is a previously unreleased album he recorded in and comprises a large number of his own compositions. It was beautifully recorded on the superb Steinway Grand piano at Rosehill Theatre in the Lake District and shows him to be a pianist with more wide-ranging influences then just Ragtime.
It is released as a tribute to Ray on the tenth anniversary of his death. MacGowan explained the lyrics as being a mixture of pirate and ghost story "about a guy on a Turkish island who deserted a sinking ship with all the money and all his mates went down — I'm not totally sure about this — he's haunted and he's dancing around with all this Turkish music in his brain Then his best mate comes back, and all the crew, to drag him back down to hell or wherever they are.
It was named after J. Donleavy 's novel A Fairy Tale of New York which Finer had been reading in the studio when the song was first written. Lillywhite took the tapes home and recorded his singer-songwriter wife Kirsty MacColl singing the female lines: when he brought them back to the studio The Pogues were so impressed that the song was re-recorded with MacColl as the replacement singing partner for MacGowan.
Its enduring popularity has seen it re-enter the charts several times sinceeventually going on to sell over a million copies in the UK  and being voted the most popular Christmas-themed song of all time. Despite never being released as a single, the track "Thousands Are Sailing" has since become one of The Pogues' most popular songs, and according to The Irish Timesit is "recognised as one of the finest songs about Irish emigration". It was only when Terry Woods offered to help him out with the track and MacGowan showed his approval of the song that Chevron gained the confidence to complete it.
Featuring what has been described as a "heartfelt lyric, soaring tune and compelling chorus on the theme of emigration from Ireland to America", "Thousands Are Sailing" inspired the Derek McCullough graphic novel Gone to Amerikay. The chorus of "Fiesta" also contains elements of " Liechtensteiner Polka ", written by Edmund Kotscher and Rudi Lindt, and on later Pogues compilation albums they are given co-writing credits. The date at the start of the verse changes Lorca's original date of 25 June to Album) August, which happens to be Costello's birthday.
The first half is a ballad composed and sung by Woods about the life of Irish independence leader Michael Collins. Their sentences were later found to be unsafe, and the Guildford Four had their convictions quashed and were released infollowed by the Birmingham Six in The song also makes a passing reference to the Loughgall Martyrswith the line "while over in Ireland eight more men lay dead, kicked down and shot in the back of the head".
MacGowan reflected, "It's about anybody in that situation, getting locked away without any real evidence Basically it's a prison song about someone pacing round his cell or round the yard wondering what the fuck it's all about It's a depressing song — it's not a song that I enjoyed writing or find much pleasure in singing. MacGowan described "Lullaby of London" as being about a man who comes home at night drunk and proceeds to start telling his young son, who is in bed, about how everything is going to be fine and to go to sleep, while privately the man is worried and hoping that the child will not have to go through the same hardships that he did while growing up.
They used to tell you some horrific stories to prepare you for the horrors of the world ahead. MacGowan revealed that he had written the song with former Clancy Brothers members Liam Clancy and Tommy Makem in mind, in the hope that they would record a version of it.
The alternative album cover, issued in the United States and Canada, is a collage of faked photos of the group's members standing in a line, in which each of their faces have been superimposed onto a shot of Irish author James Joyce.
