High Romance the new album from Emily Mae Winters. If there is any justice she should break in to the big time.

 Anyone familiar with a singer-guitarist called Henry Parker? I've just purchased his album 'Silent Spring' through Bandcamp. Lovely stuff to my old ears. Vocal delivery a bit like Ryley Walker  Smiley

https://henryparker.bandcamp.com/album/silent-spring


From Henry's website "A devoted guitarist from the West Yorkshire town of Bingley, Henry Parker plays with an intricate finger-picking style that brings to mind the late 60’s folk, psych and progressive rock scenes, with influence drawn from the likes of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, Pentangle and Fairport Convention. His songwriting lyrically entwines landscapes, people and politics with roots that run deep into the traditional folk songs of England."



Henry's other half is from Hull , Katie Spencer , who like myself is a huge fan of John Martyn and has released her first CD utilising ex players from JM's band. Katie and Henry are both great in their own ways and deserve a wider audience


Thanks Peter. Henry just sent me an email thanking me for buying his cd.....which is nice  Cheesy

Interesting and impressive.  I've just bought the cassette...which is the same price as the download which you also get.  Which is odd.  But there you are!

June Tabor & the Oyster Band "Freedom and Rain". Picked up for £3 today from Oxfam shop; I had this on cassette back when it was released, but never somehow got round to buying the CD. Duly rectified - and what a fine album it is!

Various bits of Paul Brady. Prompted by a chapter in Joseph O'Connors's wonderful book Star Of The Sea in which one of the characters cleverly becomes the writer of the ballad Arthur McBride. I have never read O'Connor before but his description of the character's working process of writing the ballad is the single best analysis I have ever read be it fiction or non-fiction. Eloquent analysis of the structure, the 'hook' and insight involved. Sure, O'Connor had the benefit of knowing the song and working backwards, but someone did start the song off at some point initially, and that is what makes it utterly believable. So after reading it I simply had to play Paul Brady's version, which is my favorite. Carthy & Swarbrick's version, as well as Andy Irvine's with Planxty are solid too of course, but my favorite is Brady's.

It is fairly obvious that I’m a massive Bruce Springsteen fan and having watched the adulatory film “Blinded by the Light” last night (a well-told tale of young fandom, discovery and family and social tensions set in the 1980s with only 2 bits that grated with me where they tried to turn the story into a musical (ugh!)), I’m listening to my well-worn vinyl copies of Greeting from Asbury Park, NJ, Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town, The River and Born in the USA (songs from these 5 albums having featured in the film) all over again  Grin

Raye Zaragoza-Fight For You. I saw Raye open for Dar Williams at the start of the year. I was unfamiliar with her at the time but have set that to right. Wonderful songwriter with an expressive voice. Just when you think the song is going one way, her voice changes and she takes it someplace else. I love it when that happens. Definitely a name to watch out for.

For the first time in a few years, I started playing Hawkwind's Space Ritual album. I now find it almost unlistenable, especially the spoken word sections, where dear old Bob Calvert's rather hammy accent reminds me too much of Jacob Rees-Mogg. I bought the CD only because I was at the Liverpool Stadium gig. Another destined for my local charity shop...

Some connection to Mervyn Peake? I have a vague recollection of an album sleeve... Early 70s?

Yes and yes. It's one of those very rare LPs that actually is quite good. Folk/classical/rock hybrid.
