That Alan Hull album 'Pipedream' is ace. One of my obscure favourites.

Been listening to Tracy Chapman again recently. Still love this:

Any one like barclay james harvest.. Caught abit of them Glastonbury a few years back.. Abit of medicine man goes down well imo 

Saw them live at Weeley in 1971, with a full orchestra. It took about 3 hours to get it all set up, a bit of a drag when there was only 1 stage. In the end one of the most memorable sets I ever saw.

Went along to acoustic to see them in 2016, left after about 15 minutes disappointed that it didn't love up to my memories.

I'm finding that there are so many of these early, grainy, scratchy, seventies Soul Train Clips out there now! Could watch them all night myself. Your Equalizer is your friend.

Curtis Mayfield, with a timeless lyric, and Sly & the Family Stone being, well,  Funky.....

Neil Young released an album he sat on since 1976 last week.- Hitchhiker , that is Hitchhiker with the double H, no hyphen.

Have a listen to that, if you get the chance

My biggest regret is that I did not find this artist sooner than I did. I only just found him in the 90's but thank god I did.

Agree with earlier posts about Barclay James Harvest.  From a similar period it's worth hunting out Roxy Music, especially their live concert in Frejus.

Great arrangements and wonderful backing singers, especially Tawitha Agee.

Also as a live band Dire Straits still led the way.

I was at that gig Grumpy. Just happened to be on holiday in Frejus that week. As far as i remember it was great, although my main memory was the hour or two we had to wait afterwards as our car had been triple parked.
