A friend from your Pioneer Avenue days in the late 70s. I'll never forget the first time I worked with you at Desborough library and discovering that you were that Judy Dyble from my favourite ever band. You may remember a house warming party in our tiny semi in Market Harborough. I remember Simon as the warmest and kindest man.
So glad to see you still creating great music.
Just had a listen to your new material, "LUSH SOUND" passion and coming from your heart as always. The only way to make music sound real, is for the artists to be real, and that you are my song-bird friend! So good to hear you're beautiful voice flowing out into the spring time air, we all need something fresh and wonderful to counter-act all the down trodden, depressing news on T.V. these days....thanks for giving us more of your heart and soul through music - as the person said before me - refreshing!
I second that motion!
Love Ya Jude.....Dave
Thank you :-)
"Flow and Change" snippets sounding great, and - once again - not like anybody else currently recording! In a world of nicking, influence, sampling, remixes, mediocrity, and recording seesions that all "sound" the same (dynamics, frequency range, effects, compression, and musical pigeon-holing) it is refreshing to hear an idiosyncratic and unique sound.
Greyhounds do that!
But, more commonly, they do this: http://johnrichmond100.blogspot.co.uk/2011/09/on-gardening-and-greyhound...
Thankyou and yes I will. My greyhound has just demolished a cardboard box...
Missed you in Fairport, saw you in Trader Horne, rediscovered you with Talking with Strangers. The music goes on - and my thanks go with it.
Oh, and as long as it's possible, keep giving homes to those ex racing greyhounds. Mine is lying on my bed at the moment.
Alessandro, I am so pleased for you! Thank you for your very kind words and look forward to seeing the re-issue of your work..
My Dear autoharp Lady,
I wish to thank you once more for your kind permission of using that quote on the reissue of the 1st Unfolk cd: there will be a nice red sticker on the cover and I'm so honoured about it! The packaging is almost ready and it will be on Burning Shed soon. I will send some copies to you asap. I did a "Dyble marathon" the other day to celebrate our link: The Fairport Convention 1st/Trader Horne/Giles Giles & Fripp music is always surprising and creative after all these years: you definitely left a unique mark on the prog-folk/pre-indie scene and your comeback was so welcome! Best wishes on behalf of the Unfolk Collective.
Greetings from Venice,
I share your views regarding the death of Lol Coxhill. He was one of my heroes from the 1970s. A superb saxophonist, with a zany sense of humour. I loved listening to him busking around London.
He has left us a legacy of brilliant music to be found on 2 albums in particular. I refer to Shooting at the Moon by Kevin Ayers and The Whole World, and his own own fine album The Ear of the Beholder, recently re-released on CD on the Esoteric Recordings label. These CDs will have pride of place in my collection for ever!
