Tudor Top of the Pops





Speaking of Early Music and the much missed David Munrow, here's a couple of nicely garish sleeves for the soundtracks of some heavyweight early 70's BBC dramas, as played by David and the Early Music Consort of London.

Keith Michell (top, middle) came to be closely associated with the role of Henry VIII until he made that record about Captain Beaky, after which he became associated with Captain Beaky - and unemployment. He's still alive, by the way. Keith Michell, I mean: Captain Beaky died in a Hong Kong hotel room many years ago. The circumstances, naturally, were mysterious.
