Diverse Vinyl, those nice vinyl specialists down in Wales, have advertised a Fairport broadcast record as a forthcoming release. No idea if it's official.  Can't  find it on amazon as yet.

Label is Rhythm and Blues records..


This one: https://www.diversevinyl.com/product/the-broadcast-album-1968-1970/?  Looks like it is taken from Heyday or from the Live at the BBC box, but whether that means FC get anything from it, I don't know.

Actually, I'm not sure Billy the Lonely Orphan Boy... has been released anywhere officially, so don't knw what the source for that might be...


Yes, some of the tracks are recognisable from Heyday, and some aren't.

And one of my favourite of his FC songs.

I think a trip to Lyme Regis is in order!  Smiley

In case you didn't know (I only found out after seeing a post on Facebook) today is the 55th anniversary of Fairport's first ever gig.

If you take a look at the Fairport Convention Touring page on FB you'll see some birthday wishes from the likes of Ralph McTell, RT and Robert Plant.

I am giving the debut album a spin and raising a glass to Simon et al and in particular remembering Jude, much missed I'm sure by all of us here on TalkAwhile.

For anyone not on Facebook who may not be aware I thought  I would share it here. I listened today at work and found it interesting to hear some of the songs as well as the stories. I won't give you Simon's list of songs but they are good!

(For those not on FB)

Rockpalast '76 is getting a DVD/CD release.  No idea how 'official' it is, mind...

Sounds interesting. A lot of Rockpalast gigs have been released over the years. Assuming sound etc is OK, I'm in.

VG line-up, but I'd bet the toilets were disgusting and the beer was terrible.

Very brief excerpt from FC's "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" towards the end of enjoyable new comedy "Brian & Charles". If only it would follow in the Hill-footsteps of Kate Bush and go to No. 1 on the strength of it  Grin
