  1. This is above-average entertainment. British-born Alexander Butterfield sang in Scotland and (in 1982) on the Canberra. He later had a café at Lake Worth with his partner Judy Craig. He died in August 2006 of heart failure. A son predeceased him. His daughter, Ondine Francis, lives in the London area.

  2. Wonderful. Any idea where I can get a copy of this L.P? I worked with Alex many times both in the Imperial Hotel, Aberdeen, Scotland in 1970 and on the Canberra 1981. He was a wonderful man and very exciting to back especially "Tudo Passara" and "Better By Far". His arrangements were like him - impeccable. Thanks for this page.

    1. I have three copies of this album. I saw AB on the Himalaya cruise ship in 1972. I never met him but I did meet his mother several times and she gave me some records of his. If you would like a copy I would be happy to send one to you.

  3. Just bought a different disc from this guy, on Edmar Records out of Canada ELPS-1170. Would date it to around 1980 based on quick research on the net. Title is "Alexander Butterfield Sings for Wives & Lovers (Live)". Seems to have dropped "husbands". This is a live recording, very enthusiastic crowd. LP has proper coloured sleeve and all that. Not my cup of tea but one for the collection.

  4. I came to this blog in search of Mr Butterfield after my granny found one of his press/fan postcard's that was autographed for her, despite the cards warm words my granny had no idea who he was. But, she is 91 so I can understand her forgetting things.
