Harbour of Days Gone By


Port Isaac 6 c Shutterstock VC

Louise Antell, a young teenager, wrote Harbour Of Days Gone By in 1967 or 8. It was her only song and she sang it only once. By 2008 she had become a successful author named Louise Cooper and had forgotten all about her song, but I hadn’t, and asked if I might record it. She was pleased with the result, and the album she suggested became the start of my putting all the songs I had gathered over more than fifty years, into a 400 song collection and setting up SongShepherd.com to share them.
