Did anyone see Ralph on 'Fairport Convention, who knows where the time goes?' on BBC4 on Friday evening? Radio Times claimed that it was 'new', but I have a feeling it's been on before.  Undecided

It's on iPlayer here.

Not sure if this is the place? I wondered if anyone had noticed that B2  Songs for Six strings ..This is the second of six CD's. Each will consist of six tracks. Together they will make up the combined box set of live music from 2009 and later.
The box is included with the first CD only.
This and future volumes will only be available at live venues or direct from this website.
The first CD consists of live versions of the tracks:

1. When Maddy Dances
2. Conundrum of Time
3. Aquamarine (Saucers)
4. Arthur Blake
5. First and Last Man
6. Pykie Boy
now available from Ralphs Website?.http://shop.ralphmctell.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=85

Yes, I'll be picking B2 up at next month's concert. Is 'Conundrum of Time' a new song?

And gosh, it's a lot of years since i heard 'Maddy Dances' live. Wink

I know that Koen watched it at the time on Dutch TV (or has some other way to watch BBC4 - is it an option on satellite?). It might be repeated again at some time on the same channel.

I think Henrik's complaint to the EU  Roll Eyes Grin is he can't go on to iplayer and watch again like we can, no doubt he will comment further  Grin

Maybe he has the proper BBC package on cable ( unlike me  Roll Eyes ) or a proper UK
proxy server that will allow him to watch the iPlayer stuff as if he were inside the UK.

There's an interesting article here about an early gig of Ralph's.

While it doesn't surprise me that they sold 6000 tickets for the gig (particularly in Croydon), but I'm very grateful that this lady gave him this chance  Smiley

There's another recent interview wirh Ralph here

Now I'm really confused!   Tongue Huh The recent article about him in Saga magazine claimed that this is to be his last major tour, but this article says:

"“The idea of never going out on tour any more fills me with fear. As long as there are people who want to hear the songs and as long as I can make a creative contribution, I’ll keep doing it.”

Let's hope that this is the correct version of his plans!

Hello David  Wink

Thanks a lot for your valuable info.

Well, I did spot the first one on DimeADozen just earlier, but where
did you find the second one, please?

I am having trouble with downloading from DimeADozen atm.,
so it would be great if you found them both at another site.

If you are into Ralph stuff there are also these two new
additions at DimeADozen:


McTell Ralph 1992 03 06 Cardiff

Description   St David’s Hall Cardiff Wales 6 March 1992

&

Ralph McTell 1994-11-14

Description   Ralph McTell and Band

It's a good job Ralph's got a few days off.
I can just imagine the set list developing as he watches the news
Weather the Storm
Another Rain has fallen
After Rain
No chance of 'The girl on the Jersey Ferry'

Not sure if any of you McTellites out there live near St Andrews Uni, but I wish I did at the moment - I'd definitely go to this if I could!
