Local songs written by Graham Penny
BOTH SIDES OF THE COIN
14 tracks 52 minutes Reissued as Bespoke CD-R 2012
One of Southampton's most popular singer/songwriters on the local folk scene at the time, Graham Penny is joined on this cassette by Hamish Gavin (bass guitar and second vocal) and Mark Leggett (lead guitar).
Two of Graham's best known songs are among the fourteen on this release.
'The Channels', the description of the queasy 'soon-to-be-home' feeling that merchant mariners get when they are getting close to their home port of Southampton.
And 'Beware Chalk Pit', a true tale of a local horse and rider that survived a treacherous fall and went on to win a local cup race.
The rider was so overjoyed that he erected the now famous monument at Farley Mount, a well known vantage point a few miles to the west of Winchester.
