Subject: RE: 5 Favourite Ivor Cutler Songs
Memories of Ivor Cutler.
Him arriving at Broadcasting House....The receptionist phones...
"Mr Cutler has arrived" ...."Put him on I say"...."Hello Ivor"...."Mister Cutler to you....I have a harmonium with me, It will explode in 5 minutes....Better get down here!" Priceless!
As for the sainted Mr Wyatt. Agree that the Rock Bottom recording (and the subsequent Peel Sessions record) are sublime.
My memory though is of the memorial for John Walters (in Broadcasting House).
I was doing the house sound in the room. And the only place that Robert could get to, was next to me at the back of the room. His contribution was a pre recorded version of "Round Midnight" Just wonderful.
Went to the pub afterwards. What a lucky chap I am...
