No, I agree it isn't Harry singing. It does sound like Bill Currie and I will ask at the meeting who they think it is.
I am very appreciative of Per's kindness in letting me have a copy of his disc. I have asked the Swedish Media centre if they can copy their other disc for me but have not had a reply and am not holding out much hope that they do!
I have already emailed Per off list to thank him lest the other members think I was ungrateful!!

I have got some really rare items including unissued takes from Harrys own test pressings lined up for the meeting to which one of these sides will be added (no point in letting the meeting have too many rare items in one go!)

The meeting is on April 28th in London near Covent Garden at the Club for Acts and Actors.

Per, I'm sure Gavin will be delighted with these mp3s and labels, as will
the Harry Roy Aprreciation Society.

I'm sure Gavin agree, though, that it is NOT Harry Roy singing - he was a
bit of a clown singing and could never sing a song 'straight'.

Hmmm I don't think the singer is Harry's regular, Bill Currie, so who the
heck is it? Sounds like Sam Costa to me. Let's see what Gavin thinks!!

I have one of the two Swedish Silverton records and I gladly share it 
with you. Here are label scans and mp3s of Silverton 3117:
