Does this forthcoming CD Farewell Farewell from 1979 by Simon, Swarb, Dave and Bruce contain tracks which are well known from previous releases and if so, is this a good vintage? Apologies if this is discussed elsewhere and I didn't spot it.

I think Noddy is about as close in both looks and personality to Ginger Baker.  It looks nothing like him at all  Smiley

Did anyone else see in the news that one of the Lewis Chessmen has been discovered and sold at auction for over £700K? Not bad considering that it was bought for a fiver back in the 60s.

The Fairport connection being Chris' song The Game Pieces - that's right, isn't it?
