The Green Ray with Barry Melton on former home turf in Leytonstone on 4th August.  Cool

Going to be great.  I've got an invite to a private party in Crewe with Barry and David Cohen et al next weekend, but not sure I'm going to be up to it unfortunately...

Looking at the track list I was surprised, indeed almost shocked, and stunned, to see the only appearance of " Stranger in blue suede shoes" on disc 9 videos😱
I thought it would be on in a few versions😮

Disc 5, track 6, Jim.


 Thanks Jules, I just checked the track list and there it is on the same line as disc 5 track 5, rendering it almost invisible to my old eyes,😎👍😂😂😂

Tracks popped up on the US WBRS Radio - and presenter/compiler Andy Nagy wrote about it:

Founding member Simon Nicol, singer and guitarist, had had an acoustic duo off and on with original fiddler Dave Swarbrick, and there are several superb recorded testaments to that partnership. Much less known, at least for me it was a revelation, was the duo of Simon with Ric Sanders, who has played with Fairport since Swarb left, and previously had been with The Albion Band and The Soft Machine. Their set makes up the first album of the trilogy. The next is a duo with early Fairport singer Iain Matthews and Dutch singer and guitarist Ad Vanderveen (aka The Iain AdVenture!). And the final act that night was the blistering electric folk rock act Little Johnny England, who also have some direct connections with the band sometimes referred to as The Fairport Confusion! This final album is actually a double cd, covering the entirety of their two set closing performance.
All three cds are absolute treasures, recorded from the soundboard and released with full permission of the artists, who indeed wrote the liner notes for each. If you needed more than just my say-so, we fully demonstrate that, by hearing a pair of songs from each of them, finishing with an extended improvisation on the Gershwin classic “Summertime” preceded by Ralph McTell’s gorgeous ballad “The Hiring Fair.” Simon and Ric in top form, as indeed all involved are.

Just sayin'. As said, available at Cropredy (Talking Elephant) - a 2nd box is sent there this week. But also of course directly available via … it's starting to pop up online here and there, too. I hear it eventually will be at the UK Amazon, too, but, erm, everyone earns least in that case … so rather buy direct be it from Radz Records or (and in the UK this absolutely makes more sense) Talking Elephant.

Also well worth listening to are Kulanjan, the album he recorded with Taj Mahal, and especially Afrocubism, a wonderful blend of Cuban and African music. One of the best sets I ever saw at WOMAD.

We got to see the Asymmetric Orchestra in Somerville MA a few years back. Wonderful music as well as a lesson in the instruments in use. He seemed to enjoy bringing Africa to us.
