Shirley Collins was Gideon Coe‘s guest last week on his excellent Late Night Book Club show. Shirley chose a soundtrack that spans her extraordinary career, spoke about her life in song, and latterly, film, as well as discussing her memoir ‘All in the Downs’ (Strange Attractor Press). You can listen again here, including Stewart Lee’s version of ‘Polly On the Shore’ which featured on our ‘Shirley Inspired’ Collection. All in all, few better ways to spend an hour. Enjoy.
