Well spotted.  Includes solo recordings too (actually just checked - 1 disc Bert, 1 disc John - and Bert & John, 1 disc Pentangle).  There's a few horrors in this list (and one or two that might interest a few here).... https://www.demonmusicgroup.co.uk/catalogue/releases/bert-jansch-john-renbour-pentangle-gold/

Thanks for the link David. I usually access t'interweb on my phone and find posting links fiddly.
I hope this release shows a few more people what the fuss is about.

For fans of Michael Chapman.  From FB:

"For those that missed out first time around I will have a small no of MC's 80th birthday cd album available soon. Includes covers by Lucinda Williams, Thurston Moore, Bridget St. John,Ryley Walker and many more. If you wish to reserve a copy please email me on andruchapman@btinternet.com
Thanks."

I'm fairly certain Andru is Michael's other half.  It's £15 + £2.50 p&p for the CD payable by Paypal.

I suspect that legally it is just different enough to be homage rather than copy, but not by much.

Really?  There's whole sections of that which are, I think, a direct lift.  Anyway, what do I know...Tony's lovely and I shall buy and enjoy, I'm sure...

I don't disagree but there is some algorithm type thing that dictates these things. Something like every eight note has to be different so the entire feel may be the same and the melody almost identical but just varies 12.5% of the time.  Grin

Steve Ashley's Family Album (Revisted) Well it has arrived and I have to say it's a lovely package, if you are going to re-release or revisit an album and bring people in who missed it the first time round this is how to do it, with extensive sleeve notes which give you a really insight into the creation of the album and lyrics, and some extra tracks. I have been a fan of Steve's since hearing Speedy Return in the mid to late eighties from my dads slight jumpy vinyl and with the exception of the demo tapes, I have managed to get hold of his entire back catalogue. I think he is a brilliant songwriter, who delves into subjects both personal, and universal, he gets to the heart of things and captures the essense of sujects and takes you on interesting journeys, making you laugh, cry, think or see things from a different perspective. On the family album he has surrounded himself with a fine cast of musicians, most of whom will be familiar to fairport old and new, I think this hints at some of what was to come from the early sound from the eighties incarnation of fairport. The songs on this album produce a snapshot of family life, and the characters and familiar incidents from Granny, Dad and even the family dog. Overall the album has a sound of a bunch of old friends getting together telling tales of the family, through words and music and it has a real relaxed feel, with the renewwed sound giving a chance for the music to shine. It has some real high points, for me feeling lazy (here have I heard this before cropredy perhaps?) and Somewhere in a song one of the extra tracks stand out, definitely worth it for these for me. This will never be my favourite of Steve's albums but with such greats to compete with , it doesn't mean its a dud, but sorry but 'Lost and Found' must contain an insight or humour that is for someone else, I just don't get it....and I have dogs.

Nice review Brendan

One of my fav's is the beautiful tribute to Bruce Rowland 'For Bruce' which I believe he sang at Bruce's funeral...... Don't quote me!

Peggy's bass is brill (as usual) throughout and Simon, perfect (as usual) and.... little Chris Leslie in the days before he became a Fairporter, wonderful.

I missed this album the first time around so it is a shear joy to be listening to it now as if a new album in my collection.

Oooo and not forgetting Steve.  Cheesy
