I love Daniel Johnson's stuff.

He is classified as an "Outsider" musician whose music was admired by the likes of Kurt Cobain, Tom Waits, the Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth.

There is a documentary film about his life, death and works called "The Devil and Daniel Johnson' (it was available free on Amazon Prime a while ago) which is a fascinating viewing of a tortured creative.

An appearances towards the latter part of his life was captured on video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkczI1-be1k a really moving and fragile performance with Glen Hansard.  His solo recordings and performances, like so many outsider musicians are pretty raw and sometimes difficult for people to get into - I think this reveals what a great song writer he was.


I'm glad somebody's got the patience to respond to a "who is he" query like that.  I just mumbled "FFS, just google it (or don't)" under my breath Wink Grin

I saw the Daniel Johnson documentary some years ago. It was very interesting and quite moving.
I also visited a very small exhibition of his paintings and drawings. I don't know how well known he is for these.

That Celtic Airs and Ballads album is a good one - I bought it many years ago from a Past Times shop (remember them?).  I also have the Broadside Band's English Country Dances from Playford's Dancing Master, 1651-1703, which is good too.  Seems like an excellent haul.

£2.99 from the local Oxfam for Kate Bush's Before The Dawn live album. And then picked up Green On Red's Gas Food Lodging and Green On Red EP on one disc from a stall in the market, together with 2 UFO albums for a fiver.

Couple of jazz samplers for 50p each, and Rush's 3CD "Different Stages - Live" set for a quid.  Never been a fan of Rush, never really listened to them much. so thought I'd give 'em a chance!

Cat Stevens’ “Tea For The Tillerman” Super Deluxe edition had a price drop from £160 to £35 on Am*z*n.
Glad I went for it as it has now gone up to £93.
Arrived today, and very good it is too!

Good score.

And I did. And it's gone into the "donate to charity shop" pile. Not for me. Fine musicians, but I can't get into it.

I might hesitate to do that.
Look it up on eBay or Discogs.
It's probably a bigger bargain than you think.
(I might even offer you a fiver for it, I don't have that one.)

Can't understand that... but then I would probably say very much the same thing about some of the bands you're into, so chacun à son goût.

I saw them 41 years ago and enjoyed them but when I listen to anything but the most classic of classic material I tend to wonder why they're playing 7 notes when only 3 would suffice.  I think that a lot about music, mind, so it's not to be taken seriously (hides King Crimson and VDGG material under the bed quickly so nobody accuses him of being a hypocrite)...
