Acerca de


When everyone else was listening to Cream, I was listening to A. L. Lloyd. (Frank Zappa)

I'm old enough and have been close enough to many of the events recounted in this thoroughly but sympathetically researched book to recognise the ring of truth when I hear it. (Bill Leader, legendary record producer)

As broadcaster, scholar, collector and singer, Bert Lloyd was one of the truly inspirational characters of Britain’s 20th century music history – without roving, curious minds like his we would have a much reduced view of folk traditions, global music or the political import of sound in daily life. Dave Arthur’s biography captures his complexity and energy with affection and unflinching honesty. (David Toop, author of Ocean of Sound (2001) and Sinister Resonance (2010).)

A. L. Lloyd was a catalyst, a man who made things happen, divided opinion, enthused, annoyed, embraced and attracted immense loyalty. He was a self-taught intellectual, a committed Marxist and a romantic, too. He might have exercised his propensity for genius in any number of areas but he did so most notably in the field of traditional music and song, becoming a touchstone for generations that followed him. This book will please and astonish those who read it. (Malcolm Taylor OBE, Library Director, English Folk Dance and Song Society)
