Just listened to DG's Dimming of the Day...I think it's great.  His voice is ok - I mean it's not exactly 1971 Dave, but we're not talking Ian Anderson here.  Ageing well, and using it to suit the material, I'd say.  And anyway, listen to that geeeetar...  Wink Smiley

If they're not already out there, audience recordings are definitely coming.  But I really do hope it gets a full release (highly unlikely, I'd have thought, but what do I know) and I can contribute to the pension fund in absentia.


There is one out there already. Sounds pretty good from what I've hear. PM me if interested.

Having had a little look around YouTube, I've got to say that I love Olivia Chaney's WKWTTG. But then I think she's great anyway (if you haven't heard the Offa Rex album that she sings on, give it a go).

You beat me to it, she sang magnificently, should be booked for the Sandy slot at Cropredy!

What a fabulous evening. So many highlights, and feel so lucky have been able to go. And the one bit that everyone around me agreed was a bit special was Peggy singing Down Where the Drunkards Roll, with RT as sideman. Such a lovely, warm, reflective performance.

The few bits I've seen on YouTube look fabulous - and RT's jacket is a sight to behold!

Who was there from FC/ex FC, apart from the late Simon Nicol?


I wonder if he spent his time in Greece re-recording some old Fairport tracks. He could release it as "What I Did On My Extended Holiday".  Grin

But great that he made it for the end of the concert. I thought I spotted him on the YouTube video plugging in his acoustic at the start of MOTL.

I understand that Bob Mould made quite the impression!

I'm still confused.  Are we talking about musically, or something else?  I love the musical contribution anyhow...sounds like Richard enjoyed it very much as well.

Just watched the Peggy version of Down where the Drunkards Roll.  So fragile, and teetering on the edge of total collapse at times.  But hugely effective and very emotive.  A triumph.

Have just listened to a full (albeit not especially great quality) recording of the show.

It occurs to me that RT participated in Joan Baez's 75th birthday show in New York a couple of years ago (available on CD & DVD) and this seems to have been designed along very similar lines. I'm guessing he was inspired by that event.

I am still sad I missed it but, having heard it, there is quite a lot that would not have especially thrilled me (essentially everything from Kate Rusby until RT played Persuasion with Teddy, with the exception of Hug You Like A Mountain and then the Maddy Prior section too, basically all the trad folk stuff). Nevertheless, I hope it gets an official release of some sort, like Joan's did.

Same thoughts. I have to think not being known as a vocalist by any means that Peggy must have been absolutely thrilled to have been asked to sing, not to mention playing mandolin as well.

Go to the Fairport website and you will see how nervous he was.

Just watched it, and it was much more affecting than I had imagined. Well done Peggy!

Also watched the David Gilmour section - fantastic!
