It has indeed, Maj, but I don't think you are a twit at all ( Act. I am not even sure what that means exactly  Grin )


I have asked the YT uploader, if he has more footage from this concert - specifically of "Red & Gold" -,
which had its live premiere on this (these) occassion(s) (3 warm up concerts before Cropredy 1987),
but unfort. he doesn't; "just" a couple of other FC songs (the titles escapes me atm.). He wasn't
there himself; the VHS-tape came from a friend, but he has forgotten who. Grin
So hopefully the real photographer will some day step forward and upload the rest of his material -
and just maybe "Red & Gold" will be included Cool Now that would truly be amazing!

Well, at least we have now managed to come across audio recordings of FC & Ralph performing Ralph's
wonderful and poetic song for the first time(s) live, so we shouldn't really complain too much, should we?  Wink

Here's a video of Burt Jansch performing his song 'Running from Home' accompanied by a certain 'very dear friend' of his!  Smiley

Just noticed that there's one of them playing Moonshine too - here.

This takes me back a good few years too. For one thing, not sure how many years it's been since I last saw that Thames TV ident  Tongue  Smiley

Thanks Naomi - love it. Such a cosy atmosphere ;-)

I had no idea it was Ralph singing until a couple of years ago,
guess I hadn't really listened hard enough SIGH

One more here, which us folks in the incrowd have already seen and heard several years ago

I can clearly remember the 1st time we heard it. Our daughter, then aged about 5, was watching a children's programme - can't remember what. It finished, and the next programme started - Wind in the Willows. We (Carl & I)  both looked up at the same moment and said 'That's Ralph' in unison  Grin

Great story, Naomi  Cool

But I have to admit that I didn't really pay very much attention to this TV-
series back when it was first on air here, as I felt "slightly" outside its intended
target audience  Roll Eyes

But today I would probably watch it every time, just for the intro and the outtro  Grin

Thanks JJ  Smiley

While looking at YT I noticed that the Old Gray Whistle Test version of  Dry Bone Rag that was on Guitar Heroes has been posted there, in case anyone hasn't seen it yet.


There's also this rather,  errm - how shall I put this? - unusual version of Sol - at least they got that word right!  Smiley

Haha, good one, Naomi  Roll Eyes

Ralph would be touched - and at least they got the "and" right  ( not "hand" !)  Cool

There are a few new Ralph-related videos on YT:

There's this version of 'England', with slideshow - I think that the pictures mostly go very well with the song. This version of 'Barges' is from a performance at Port Elliot in 2009.

There's also a version of 'Clare to Here', in which, at one point, it appears that Ralph is slowly being engulfed by a rising fog. The notes describe it as showing 'a very young Ralph', though I'd guess that he's in his early fifties, at least. (Yes, I know, that's not old  Grin ) Does anyone know when this was filmed?

Also, there are two versions of SOl - this one might (or might not!) be appreciated by Ralph's wife -  hope it's a good translation  Smiley
The second version of SOl, here, reminds me of an occasion a few years ago when we went to the 'Victorian Extravaganza' in LLandudno. Like some strange sort of time-warp we passed someone with a Victorian hurdy-gurdy type instrument playing SOL!  Shocked  This one isn't a hurdy-gurdy, but sounds similar.

Thanks for those Naomi. I like the slide show but not quite sure about the burger bar and the Little Chef portrayed as part of English heritage!   Grin Grin Just 'Barges' won't open for me.  Huh

Ah, yes - lovely slide show - thanks, Naomi  Cool
Is this the original version of England?
I think it's the first time, I have heard this one.

Hmmm, maybe there is a reason they won't allow you onboard those barges, Joanna?
Have you been there before perhaps? And did you become seasick or make a mutiny? Tongue

I believe we have seen the others before, Naomi?
Please let me know if you don't have these - apart from the last two, I take it  Roll Eyes

And btw. it's not green fog trying to engulf our poor Ralph - it's of course the
famous Irish mist rolling in from the Atlantic Sea towards County Clare Wink

Thanks for those - I really enjoyed them. Nice to see Ralph so relaxed and to play for another singing one of his songs.
