It's a film, but it looks like it will be well worth a watch...new documentary on Karen Dalton

https://www.theguardian.com/film/2021/sep/27/karen-dalton-folk-singer-documentary


I donít think Iíve ever heard of her before the article☹️

And if this doesn't get you, nothing will....


By the way, fans of Mayans MC (Sons of Anarchy spin off) may recognise the tune...it plays a big part in S3E4.  I'll be honest and say and I only know this is retrospect.  Knew I knew the tune, mind but it was only a day or two later I remembered what it was.

The music is worth checking out, though there's sadly little if it.

You're right, Will. I just checked the lyric sheet in my copy of the LP.


Thanks!  It sounded like that, but has never really meant much to me.  I guess 'three-star' is meant to symbolise high quality?  Like an American 'three-star general'?

I have a similar question about the refrain of Ashley's Brief Encounters (from By Gloucester Docks...).  Is it "... a three-star love..."?

http://www.angelair.co.uk/?tcp_product=stackridge-50-recordings-1971-2021

50 track box set of Stackridge recordings from 1971 - 2021.

All good stuff and under £15 for the lot.


A pity they didn't spend a little more than a quid on the cover. †Just dreadful. †Not a bad introductory compilation, mind....


Angel Air release some great stuff generally , but they could make more effort with sleeve art.


When I spoke to Mutter a few weeks ago, he said Andy Davis was choosing the tracks and there were some different live versions of things - I am bit disappointed that Angel Air have not given a bit more information in their listing about that. Not sure if it comes with a booklet or not either.


Not sure why I can't handle quotes lately!  Roll Eyes Anyway, I have tidied this up.

I don't have the set but I suspect that any live tracks come from the two live albums that Angel Air has the rights too, The Forbidden City and The Final Bow. In particular I notice that all of the A Victory For Common Sense tracks come from the latter as Angel Air does not have the rights to the final studio album.

Since posting this yesterday I have discovered that all of the live tracks are from The Final Bow. A bit of a surprise. It is an excellent set but very much a makeshift line up of the band. The Forbidden City is closer to the classic line up.

That sounds like a wonderful evening! †Interesting that you have Jez Lowe and Martin Carthy on the bill, and that the headliners are Granny's Attic, when either of those would seem like the bigger names! †I guess that it is a good sign for the new generation though.


I suspect it's more to do with 'tempo' and 'entertainment'.  You know, listen up early, get pissed and end up having a good ol' dance at the end kind of thing...
