    Can anyone tell me where to buy the cd single, for my friends niece.
    Rolf Harris and the Welsh choir Fron performed "Two Little Boys"
    I have looked and asked in various shops with no luck.
    My friends niece loves it so we want to get her it.

    Cheers Merc-c

    Is this a new version? The original was from around 1968 I think?

    It was only ever available as a "single" by download - only 0.65p.
    It never had a "proper" release where you could go into a shop and buy it as a normal CD.

    See here for details.........
    http://www.rolfharris.com/Music/newsingle.htm

    Or, she can view the full version free on YouTube here in full stereo............
    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=urXrAqaCZzI

    Alternative video here (shows first world war clips and photos - very, very moving)............
    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=8wCko00OTRU&NR=1

    If you are not into downloads etc, let me know and I will do it all for you and burn a CD and post it to you. PM me if you want and let me know. I might even throw in a proper printed sleeve.


    BTW.........

    The link shown above submitted by AMGeed on post #3 does NOT have the track you require. It only has the original version of 'two little boys'. An easy error to make.

    If you want an album which DOES have the 2008 Welsh choir version included, this is the CD you need to buy...............
    (Its track no.5)

    As an aside, did you see the series earlier this month in which various celeb's tracked down their ancestors involvement in WWI? In one, Rolf Harris tracked down what happened to his father and uncle which was obviously a very moving experience for him. Although the "Two Little Boys" song was originally written many years ago about the American Civil War, it was clear that the song had a new and special resonance for Rolf after finding out the tale of his own family.

    Yes.
    I was in tears at the end I dont mind admitting.

    My Grandfather on my Mothers side died in WW1 and I have his medal hanging up in my hall. He was killed before my Mother was born, so she never ever saw her Father.
    Like thousand of others I expect.

    I hope the like is never ever seen or experienced again.
