GUEST,Phil Hammersmith Folk Club Recollections (50) RE: Hammersmith Folk Club Recollections 22 Feb 13

I used to attend with a mate I worked with (2 treefellers from Harrow) at the Dalling Road pub, in 1976/77. I remember Rod Hamilton leading 'Santa Anna' with whoever else was in and I remember John Townsend singing, 'Step it up Mary' etc. and telling jokes, (which were hilarious after 4 pints!). I remember Don Shepherd's amazing voice, and many other performers I cannot name, like a couple of Northeners who sang, 'Boozing!' and 'Gentle Annie', a visiting American, a young guy who always sang 'One Man Band', and several more. My mate and I would look forward to going all week. The place had such a great atmosphere and whatever the weather (or your mood), you always came out on high! Loved it! I still have an LP by John Townsend, and I (naughtily?) taped part of one evening on a cassette recorder.
