Subject: Music you'd forgotten you had
From: Colin Randall

Unashamedly inspired by the brilliant What Did You Listen To Last Night? thread, I wondered if anyone else has come across music they bought/acquired yonks ago - and, in a few cases (which shocks me a little) not so long ago at all - and had all but forgotten?

Some store such stuff in the attic. Mine was in boxes in the unused garage

I am currently planning a temporary move and poring over hundreds of CDs, which will have to stay put, to put as much as I can on to my Ipod.

So far this afternoon:

Alain Stivell; Brian Boru
Ewan Maccoll, Charles Parker, Peggy Seeger: The Big Hewer(Radio Ballad)
Stefan Grossman: Shining Shadows
Nancy Kerr and James Fagan: Steely Water
Sweeney's Men: Legend of...
Various: Now and in time to Be (Musical celebration of the works of WB Yeats)
Planxty: After the Break
Patrick Street: Compendium - best of...
Anne Briggs: A Collection

..curiously enough..

last week, for the first time in many years,
i remembered how much
i used to enjoy Alain Stivell way back in the 70's..

cant even remember if i ever owned any of his LPs..

but he must have been quite a 'big name' folk artist
with frequent exposure on mainstream UK radio & TV..?????

however.. now i'm getting much closer to my 1/2 Century birthday..
dismaying how much i've forgotten about great music & artists
that were so important in my life
back when i was a young wannabe punk/new wave recording artist..

So just off the top of my head..

some of the many bands i've neglected somewhere in dusty boxes
stored in the attic back at me old mums house..

XTC, Talking Heads, Mink Deville,
Fun Boy 3, The Beat, Television, Au Pairs, Slits, The Fall......

Tell me about it!
I have loads of Folk on 2 and Folkweave sessions on cassette from 1975 onwards, wonderful obscure singer-songwriters like Hedley Kay,Ian Clarke and Christopher Rowe (?). Also wonderful second hand record finds like Stuart Marson's Night Falls on the Orchestra, and Frogmorton. (I was the weird kid who had pictures of The Yetties on the wall, when the rest of the girls had Donny Osmond and the Bay City Rollers!)
