Awww yeah, good choice Nath Ann!

Related to the death by stairs, it's a good statement on destructive fame I've quoted for others too. Did they fall (from a weakness) or were they pushed (by the pressures of fame).

So Erma, you were ALREADY a Nath Ann fan before this show??! Wow, suddenly I feel late to the party!

Nath Ann, I have been guilty of walking around listening to dirges (or sea shanties, what?) myself!

I am insanely jealous that you know LT. I want her to adopt me, she's wonderful!

@Matt - I hate to be a pedant but it's did she JUMP or was she pushed?

Here's the thing - I thought I was tuning in for the Best Show and then there was Sandy Denny playing and then there was Nath Ann and then I was all OH I CAN LISTEN TO THE BEST SHOW LATER. This is my jam!

Midwinter: "These gentle troubadours, precursors of folk-rock band STONE ANGEL, almost formed by accident when, in 1972, guitarists Paul Corrick and Ken Saul got together to rehearse a gig for a Great Yarmouth folk club Christmas party. They asked singer Jill Child to join in and the three soon became a close-knit formation with a mutual love for all things folk."

@Matt - yes, Sally & Mike Oldfield had a band in their teens. It wasn't very great... I think they had just the one album. Sally actually had a fantastic later album with "Water Bearer", and Michael had "Discovery" and "Crisis", both really good LPs.

@C.S.: It was called "Mixed Nuts". It started with a focus on outsider music, which is how I got to know Irwin, but it eventually just became a freeform show (on a college station that only has a few "specialty" shows in the midst of preprogrammed "indie pop"...) I always focused on weirdness, experimental stuff, rare records, etc., but I did a little of everything.

Some of the things that Julie plays sometimes... just wow. Eye opening. It's like, "Who knew???" That, for me, goes into when she plays French recordings that I never knew of.

@Bronwyn, that sounds like a really interesting show! I don't know where you are from or are in school - but I avoided LA for so many years because I assumed I would hate it and I actually think it's a really cool city. I just don't want to have a car (I live in NY and haven't had a car since my senior year of HS).

Wow. GREAT ALBUM---> Fotheringay disbanded in January 1971, during sessions for a projected second album.[2] Some of its songs surfaced on Denny's 1971 debut solo album, The North Star Grassman and the Ravens.


(from wiki)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm
Matt from Springfield:

And still more to come!

@Van: Fotheringay did an amazing version of the standard "Gypsy Davey", on album and esp. live at the BBC. Someone here told me that announcer on that is Brian Matthew, who concludes with a great soundbite "Gypsy Davey - Fotheringay style!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm

there is a Fotheringay 2 album
Avatar 11:04pm
Van in DC:

Reading on at Wiki, yes, I see:

In 2007, the BBC announced that Donahue would be attempting to complete the abandoned project (which he accomplished using previously unheard takes from the original archived tapes). Permission had finally been granted and the work was completed by summer of the following year. The resulting album, titled Fotheringay 2, was released by Fledg'ling Records on 29 September 2008.[3]

Love that Sweetwater. Read this in Wiki - "They were the act scheduled to open the Woodstock Festival in 1969; however, due to being stopped by the police on their way to the festival, solo folksinger Richie Havens became the first performer. Sweetwater performed next, becoming the first band to perform at the festival." Tuned in a tad late so forgive me if this was already discussed. Sounding great, Julie!
