WHAT I DO

where to buy

 

CDs can be bought at my gigs, workshops and lessons or via mail. They are produced in small batches (I'm not Ed Sheeran) and occasionally they sell out (!) in which case there might be a short delay. But if you want to buy one I'll get it to you! Please contact me for more information.

 

Listen to the audio samples, and if you click on See Details you'll see the Track Listings also include several links to YouTube videos - have a look!

CLIVE HARVEY

Hot Ukulele

Ukulele-based solo CD. A wide range of material and treatments, from solo uke to full arrangements, with Clive doing everything including most of the writing.

Hot Ukulele

Upbeat instrumental opener with a hint of Hawaii.

 

Stealing Chips

The butterfly effect in a little family saga based, loosely, on a true story. Probably Clive's most requested song among children.

 

She Wears Red Feathers

And don't forget the huly-huly skirt. One of Guy Mitchell's great singalong hits from the 50s and perfect on uke. Not very pc by today's standards but fun. A guilty pleasure!

 

Beautiful Island (see video)

An original "tiki"-style song, simple, relaxed and relaxing. One of Clive's personal favourites from his recent compositions.

 

Stephen Hawking Lives In My Downstairs Loo

Dedicated to one of Clive's heroes and inspired by the sound of a faulty extractor fan. A flight of fantasy and, Clive admits, a very silly song.

 

Over The Rainbow

Clive's solo instrumental take on this fabulous old standard. Bears no resemblance whatsoever to Israel K's version.

 

The Map Of Australia

Another rather bizarre song, again based on a true story.

 

Boogulele (Ukulele Boogie)

Does exactly what it says on the tin.

 

Cradle Song (Lullaby)

Another of Clive's solo uke arrangements, this time of the much loved little classic by Johannes Brahms.

 

Wellington Rag (see video)

A lively ragtime-inspired instrumental written in, and named after, New Zealand's capital city.

 

Time

A love song.

 

High-Visibility Trousers

Despite its title also a love song . . . sort of . . .

UK Ukulele Envoy

Ukulele-based CD. Some solo items, others with fuller arrangements. Clive's son Jackson took the cover photo and plays bass guitar on one song, otherwise it's Clive doing everything.

UK Ukulele Envoy (see video)

Catchy tune, cheeky claim.

 

I Live In Trafalgar Square

Lovely old music hall song written by C.W. Murphy in 1902.

 

Pennies From Heaven

1936 standard first sung by Bing Crosby.

 

When The Swallows Come Back To Capistrano

Leon Rene's sentimental ballad subjected to a surreal Harvey twist.

 

Twelve Children

Clive in calypso mood.

 

I'm Henry The Eighth, I Am

Harry Champion's famous signature song, bizarrely a huge No.1 hit in America for Herman's Hermits.

 

Baby Baby

Clive first sang and recorded this with the Back Seat Jivers in rock'n'roll mode. It adapts well to uke.

 

Wimoweh (The Lion Sleeps Tonight)

African song picked up by Pete Seeger in the 50s, a big hit for The Tokens in the early 60s and revived again in The Lion King. Popular with kids and a staple item in Clive's uke workshop repertoire.

 

Wartime Medley

8 wartime favourites given the ukulele treatment and a full arrangement complete with the sound of marching boots.
