my mum wants a Chris Barber song called, she tells me, 'Chimes Blues', but i've searched on Amazon for this and it doesn't seem to exist. Is my mum right about the title?

Many thanks

There are several versions, including the classic one recorded on July 13, 1954. It's not featured on the Barber website, but there is a more recent vesion on the music clips page at If you send me an email at I can make a low-res mp3 of the classic version for you, and tell you how to get it, if that's the one you're looking for.

To add to Ed's suggestion, the LP (10 inch) was called New Orleans Joys (Decca 1198)

It has been reissued, the best reissue is the Lake Records CD
LACDD141/2. go to

The original Album is for sale on EBay quite often, and also set sales can be found on (GEMM)

Hope you find what your Mum wishes.
