There will soon be a new official Danny Spooner website to replace this one.

All the information below and more is available from Reinhard Zierke's website mainlynorfolk.info.

I don't have copies of three of these recordings, so the links to lyrics in some cases are not based on hearing Danny's versions, but only my supposition. The discography, however, I believe to be complete. Thanks to Reinhard Zierke for providing so many lyrics pages.
