HATCD046 “HARVEYS BEST” by HARVEYS BOYS August 2004

Harveys Boys are me and my chum Barry Turner. We both share a passion for real ale especially our local Sussex Best Bitter “Harveys Best” and, with permission from Miles Jenner, head brewer at Harveys Brewery, Lewes, East Sussex, we called ourselves Harveys Boys and made this our first CD based around this wonderful beer and its brewery. Barry and I used to sing at The Baker and Oven pub in Marylebone, London, in the 70s, and our friendship has lasted all these years. We made this CD choosing well-known popular songs and some new originals of our own. All our friends had a copy and we often sing these songs at live gigs either down here in Sussex or more often up in Scotland, where Barry lives, at Hogmanay. I did all the musical production as well as the recording and we are both proud of the end result. Some of these songs on this cd will, we hope, have an extra life in the future especially our song about The Battle of Britain “They Were The Few” …Track 5 (which has since been re-recorded with a military Band backing…see my video with The Petworth Town Band).
