    You learn something new everyday....

    Is that ever true...

    Sitting outside,on my lunch break, I was listening to THEN AND NOW, and noticed that the guys used their Christian (Formal) names on the sleeve.

    I did not know that Cy went by his middle name Cyril...


    gee... After all these years... you think I would know at least that !!

    HA! LOL!!!

    You do learn something new everyday...

    Now, I've seen his name as Cyril John Curnin in several places - is it really the other way around?

    I'm with Bash on that. All these years, I never saw anything printed otherwise...

    I used to wonder if he was named after Cyril Delevanti.

    I alway thought it was Cyril John Curnin too.....


    So unless this is a misprint... Go look at THEN AND NOW....

    It is a mystery

    Or is that Cyril Devilante?

    Alfred? Perhaps they mixed in a reference to Alfie Agius, who was (briefly) their bass player between Charlie Barrett and Danny Brown. Alfie has a song writing credit on One Thing Leads to Another, so his brief stay in the band has probably worked out decently well for him...

    Notes on CD liners can be really badly wrong, especially on the repackaged sets like Then and Now. It's really interesting to see how many mistakes just you alone have found regarding Cy's name, Jeanne. No one seems to use fact checkers anymore...

    Yeah.. I actually thought it might have something to do with Alfie too.... it just says Alfred Cyril Curnin after every song listed ...even songs that were writen long after Alfie left the band....... I kinda guessed it might be a typo as I have never read anything else beside Cyril John Curnin.... I just figured someone might have the scope... thanks Bash!!
