Anybody got any thoughts about this.  

Chas Dickie formed Pool of Sound, in Oxfordshire after the 1978 breakup of Van der Graaf Generator in which he had played cello and keyboards since1977.

Marc, David and Hamish were all living in Oxfordshire, and so the band met and went on to rehearse in Chipping Warden and then East Hendred Village Hall.

Pool of Sound was conceived as a group which could encompass many genres and aspects of music.

Between 1978 and 1980 they played Glastonbury, Fairport Conventionís Cropredy Festival, Festival of Mind, Body, and Spirit at Londonís Olympia, Moles Club Bath, and numerous venues in the Oxford Area


As far as I can tell they didn't play '79-'82 so it must surely be '78?  Don't think lineups exist for the pre-'79 bashes do they?

Chas Dickie was my brother's cello teacher.

I remember him putting on school-related music events in East Hendred village hall (I think he may have been caretaker there) and with Wantage Music Workshop (a Saturday morning music school which Chas, my mum and various other local music teachers used to run.) I would've been primary school age at the time. Pool Of Sound rings a bell - I'm pretty sure.

I shall ask my mum what she remembers of him...

There's a copy of Liege LP for sale on that site full of genuine autographs (Ebay) signed only by Sandy
Apparently the seller has shown it to Gerorgia who says it looks like her mother's writing

I think Tasha is correct.  It looks laboured, definitely not done in a hurry as most autographs are.

Agreed , if you thrust an LP sleeve in front of an artist often after they have just been on stage ,  you are lucky if you can make it out afterwards
This seems a lot more considered , therefore there  ought to be a story behind it , in my opinion

I did laugh at the heavily "signed" card sleeve CD  of the first album, where Ashley has apparently forgotten how to spell his own name....

The trouble is , if you can find a genuinely signed copy uploaded to the internet , so can forgers , and that is all the ammunition they need , plus some sleeves , a pen and an ebay account - not that I am saying that is the case with this Sandy  Denny one

I may have mentioned this before, but my favourite 'genuine autographed' item was signed in person by none other than Elvis Presley.

There it was, Elvis' signature, on the cover of an Elvis compilation which was released in 1982.

He signed it at the chippy, obviously.

Reminds me of that time I saw "The Freddie Mercury Album", a compilation of his solo recordings released a year after his passing, being offered on Ebay with his "authentically certified" autograph !  Grin

My favourite autograph was that of Lindisfarne's Simon Cowe. He never signed his own name, usually using a silly nom de plume. So, if you were offered one of his autographs that read 'Simon Cowe', it was definitely a fake!

I have a signed copy of Henry the Human Fly, that I won in the raffle at Cropredy 1987.
Richard has signed it twice, once on the clear plastic protective sleeve, and again on the Album cover itself.
Always makes me giggle when I dig it out.

I managed to get backstage at Portsmouth Guildhall after a Fairport gig. It was the Nine lineup.
I didnít have my copy of the album with me, but there was a Corn Flakes box in the room.
I now have an autographed back of a Corn Flakes box stuck to the inner sleeve of my copy of Nine!
