Subject: RE: Great 70s folk LPs (that I've missed)
I liked rubber Records - Brimstons's pink album called very good time
Also Tony Capstick did this wonderful half spoken version of the song - you spoke the first word John Brown on the sampler - there was this bloke.. I also love the Punch and Judy Man by him - loved The Bonny Bunch of Roses onn that record. John connolly says he prefers Capsticks version of the title track to all the others. Though having said that the Yetties did a wonderful green album with that one on , and Pete Shutler playing a beautiful electronic keyboard.
paddy reilly who later joined the Dubliners - he did some great albums. Wonderful voice.
Tommy Dempsey's Album Green Grow the Laurel was pretty special - as is Tommy.
Its like I say - you could go on all night. And Christy moore of course!
