My dad had a CB album called (I think) Barber - Folk Style. The cover featured CB sat/standing by some steps I think. I also believe the first track on side one was "Wimoweh." I am trying to find if this album is available on CD. It may have been on the Polydor label and was probably a 60's album.

I just noticed that on "" 4 copies of the "Folk Barber Style" LP are for sale. You will find the respective page with the search function "title" and the indication "Folk Barber Style".

Thanks for that useful information Andreas. Let's hope Decca decide to release this great album on CD!!

Thanks for the note to say the album was avilable on CD. I immediately bought 2 copies at £5.99 each - a bargain! One copy for my father and one copy for me; I now live in New Zealand. It brought back great memories of listening to the LP over 20 years ago and the recording is of great quality!

Thanks again.

Hi Kevin,

As you are now in NZ, maybe you'd like to get in touch, as I stock the range of Chris Barber CDs from Timeless, Lake and Upbeat. I still have a small mountain of double CDs left over from the 2000 Down Under Tour with Kenny Ball's band. If any one wants any, I can accept UK and NZ currency, but no longer have Visa facilities - too expensive...
