A lady called Mother

The Swan Silvertones • A Lady Called Mother • 1959


  1. A beautiful track, and one that I'd not heard before.

    I've been listening to a double Fairfield Four CD set recently. While there are many songs of theirs that I admire, to me, they're just not as consistent in their intonation as the Hummingbirds or Silvertones.

    1. This was probably on the first Swans LP I ever heard, years ago, The Best of Swan Silvertones on Vee-Jay. I think I still have that LP, with some of the grooves so played to death they'll barely hold a needle. Not that I play LPs these days. . . !

      Thanks for commenting. You're right, the Hummingbirds and the Swans in their prime are hard to beat!
