Book Cover

A book not to be missed

A Gathering of Folk was the second major exhibition by Guernsey based portrait photographer Mark Leightley. His work has been widely acclaimed and gathered awards both in the U.K. and United States.

The book that accompanied the exhibition is now published, priced 15 and all profits from the entire project are being donated to The Teenage Cancer Trust. The book is a limited edition of just 2000 copies world wide. A great gift for anyone interested in the history of the British Folk Music scene!

All the subjects are artistes who have had a major impact on folk music over the past 30/40 years. The black & white portraits are accompanied by biographies and will give readers not only the opportunity to put names to faces but find out more about the person behind the music. An introduction to the book has been written by the actor Geoffrey Hughes.

Among those included are Maartin Allcock, Harvey Andrews, Aly Bain, Derek Brimstone, Eliza Carthy, Martin Carthy, Gerry Conway, Bob Copper, Phil Cunningham, Richard Digance, Diz Disley, Julie Felix, Bob Fox, Finbar Furey, Vin Garbutt, Gordon Giltrap, Rosie Hardman, Ashley Hutchings, Bert Jansch, Bob Johnson, Nic Jones, Rick Kemp, John Kirkpatrick, Peter Knight, Chris Leslie, Beryl Marriott, Jacqui McShee, Ralph McTell, Noel Murphy, Simon Nicol, Hazel O'Connor, Tom Paxton, Dave Pegg, Maddy Prior, John Renbourn, Kate Rusby, Ric Sanders, Peggy Seeger, Pete Stanley, Dave Swarbrick, John Tams, Cyril Tawney, Jeremy Taylor, Danny Thompson, Richard Thompson, Mike Waterson, Norma Waterson, and The Yetties.

Long after I retired from the music scene John Garrad of Plant Life records found a box of 'The Weakness of Eve' (my final vinyl album in 1983) hidden away on the shelves. I now have these available for sale at 12 each including postage and packing.

A quick look on the web reveals that some of my earlier albums have been selling at staggering prices - 100 for Queen of Hearts, 50 for Stopped in My Tracks and an amazing 350 for Jerseyburger! So it could be that a copy of The Weakness of Eve will be a good investment!

RMC CD - 'TAKE ME AWAY' (KM023)

rmc-images

Somewhere way back in the mists of time (i.e. the early 70s!) I was lucky to have Andy Caven as my roadie for a few years. As well as being an excellent sounds-man, driver and good buddy, Andy was an excellent singer/guitarist/songwriter as well... so it was inevitable that eventually we would go our separate ways.

Andy moved south to Colchester and has been a well-respected stalwart of the music scene ever since. His latest venture is as part of RMC - a trio comprised of Andy, Paul Marfleet and Paul Riley and although I haven't seen them play live I can tell that this CD will be welcomed enthusiastically by their fans.

My personal favourites on the CD are the title track 'Take Me Away' - boy can I get into those lyrics in my over-worked world! - and 'Turbulent Ego' where I honestly didn't know whether to laugh, gnash my teeth or cry - I've known a few guys of the 'Medallion Man' mentality so it well and truly struck a chord!

There is something for everyone here - from gentle love songs to out and out rock 'n' roll (I'd have been amazed if a bit of that hadn't crept in with Andy around!). By the way - one riff in One Love Two Hearts reminded me of a tune from way back but it drove me nuts trying to remember what it was. Finally I remembered- it was a line from 'Memories Are Made of This' - the old Perry Como (?) song.

The musicianship throughout the whole CD is excellent, as are the arrangements and vocal harmonies. Production values are high - the sound is clean and crisp - reflecting the ear for perfection that I remember Andy having as a sounds-man.

Some of the sleevenotes also raised a smile but I'm not going to mention them all here - I'll leave them for you to discover for yourself. However I just HAVE to mention...... a drummer called Bangelot and a guy called Noirbox who used to work for an airline??? Hmmmmm... lower limbs are being yanked a little here methinks... ;-)

Nice one guys!

If you want to read more about the band, visit the Kid Menthal website.

To order the CD, post a cheque ( for 12 within the UK, 14 outside the UK - postage is included) made payable to "A Caven-Atack" to: KM RECORDS, 20 Meyrick Crescent, Colchester, Essex, CO2 7QY. Please ensure your order is accompanied by the correct Title and KM catalogue number (KM023) for the CD.

PSYCHOTRON RECORDS (PETE BONNER)
If you are looking for any of my records you might like to put yourself on Pete Bonner's mailing list. I've bought a number of copies of my albums from him and he ensures that they are accurately described and a reasonable price. If you have any old folk stuff for sale, Pete deals in 60s and 70s Psychedelic/Progressive and Folk LP's, Posters and Magazines. Click HERE to email Pete.

Pete has several interesting albums of mine available at the moment:
1. Jerseyburger MINT condition. Please write to Pete by email (see above) with offers for this one!
2. Jerseyburger 150, signed on the back with dedication. Pete tells me the vinyl is in really nice condition.
3. Jerseyburger 70 Not a great pressing this copy, slight background noise, or may just take some serious cleaning as it plays fine when "wet", one scuff + with a some clicks. However, as this album in perfect condition has been known to sell for up to 350 on the web, this price is fair for its' condition.
4. Eagle Over Blue Mountain. Pete has a couple of copies of the original vinyl for sale also.
