Clifford T Ward - Home Thoughts From Abroad

This is Cliffords 2nd album released in 1973 recorded after the chart success of " Gaye " allowed him to retire from teaching English Lit in England ( one of his pupils was Trudie Styler future wife of Sting who championed him in later years when he fell ill ) . He had sevferal hits in the UK and further afield but due to his illness ( Multiple Scelerosis ) was unable to keep up the gruelling schedule needed in those days to carve out the international career and fame  he deserved.
Home Thoughts From Abroad is a well known short work by the famous Victorian poet Robert Browning (1812-89).
