Bawdy British Ballads

Big Theo
1 Jan 1968

The Bottom Line

'A collection of choice songs' - indeed

John had nothing to do with this record! This is just about the only album Theo Johnson himself managed to get out - shortly after the release of London Conversation. Bawdy British Ballads contains folk songs full of sexual innuendo, a peeing dog and two sets of limericks. It probably was the repertoire he used to play in folk clubs like Bunjies and the Kingston Folk Barge. The man had a voice with limited range and sings from his throat.
