Ralph McTell's songs are populated by dozens of memorable figures that spring both from his experiences and his imagination, yet on listening to his recordings perhaps the most fascinating character that emerges is McTell himself.
In this album-by-album, track-by-track review of McTell's career, readers meet both the man and the musician as the elements of his craft are explored.
Professor Paul O. Jenkins is the University Librarian at Franklin Pierce University (New Hampshire, USA). He is the author of three books and served as the co-editor of Teaching The Beatles (Routledge, 2018). Besides writing liner notes for Ralph McTell's 2006 box set The Journey, Jenkins recently published a detailed examination of John Prine's songs in Popular Music And Society. He believes that human emotions can most effectively be shared and explored through the medium of music.
