Secular Songs and Tunes

This isn’t in any way organised as yet – as soon as there’s enough stuff here I’ll tidy it up and index it!  There’s a lot to add, so it’s going to take time …

Most of these are amateur recordings made in Alan’s “Man Cave”.  They are pretty much “live” .. warts and all, as their only aim is to let those who can’t read music hear the songs and possibly enjoy them.  I’ve overdubbed a few guitars and voices, but I have not aimed for perfection (and I’m unlikely to achieve it!)
