Elton Hayes CD Release

Elton Hayes as Alan a Dale

Geoff Waite has been researching the life and discography of Elton Hayes (1915-2001) for many years. He has regularly contributed to this blog and given us fascinating information about the man who played Alan a Dale in Walt Disney's Story of Robin Hood (1952).

This week Geoff emailed me with news that Nimbus Records are about to release a selection of music by Elton Hayes as part of their 'Retrospective' series. It is wonderful to think, that once again Elton's songs and ballads will be heard again. So watch this space for more information.

A friend and business associate of mine lives in Cockfield in Suffolk and he remembers as a boy, his family often refering to the fact that Elton Hayes lived just across the field at a farm there, but at that time Elton would be an older man of course. My colleague had no idea of who he was at the time and still wouldn't be too familiar with his films, Radio and TV shows and of course his songs - but we here all are very familiar with all of those. To think that a 'new' CD is to be issued is quite amazing but very pleasing, all the same, to his many fans and followers after all the years. His role as Alan A'Dale is without a doubt the reason that he is so well remembered. He was one of the leading stars of the film and effectively held it together and maybe even narrated it in song.
