Subject: RE: Rediscover Old Masters (eg, Cat Stevens)
Wow! Someone doesn't know Kevin Ayers, latterly of this parish is southern France - Joy For A Toy, ex-Caravan etc; Roy Wood, famous Brummie, Move, Wizzard etc, and Heinz Burt, bassist with 60s chart toppers The Tornadoes, I believe. All old rockers and little to do with folk music.Less interesting to re-discover than discover I think. Recently I came across Christy Dignam, singing with Finbar Furey (see YouTube). What an amazing singer with a range crossing rock, folk and bel canto. He's clearly not well, and getting on and I wondered how I'd never come across him before.
