Subject: 5 Favourite Albums Yet to be Recorded
From: GUEST,Suibhne Astray

I'm sort of being serious here; call it Fantasy Folk if you like, where you can see the potential of something (something potentially great) but you consign yourself to living in hope...

My first would be a solo album by Dave Cousins consisting entirely of Traditional material, self accompanied on banjo, dulcimer and only occasional guitar. He's touched upon this briefly early on his career (somewhere I have a near perfect Banks of the Nile) before the hit & miss Strawbs business got in the way. In a similar vein, an dark bleak album of the most intense and distubing Child Ballads from Scott Walker with full orchestral backing would be a thing of beauty and a joy forever. On a lighter note, I'd love to see Jim Eldon do an album of Michael Hurley Covers. But how much better it would be if they did it as a fiddlin' duo. They could called it Jim 'n' Snock Across the Pond.

In other areas I might dream of Daevid Allen and Robert Wyatt getting together for an album of retrospective gliss and crooning, and it would be lovely if the surviving members of the Third Ear Band could do an ensemble tribute to Glen Sweeney, Hell, I'd be happy with a record of improvised droning duets by Richard Coff and Ursula Pank (nee Smith).

So there's five; no doubt the more Folk Aware might provide others, or not, assuming whether or not you think such dreams are in anyway constructive...

I am awaiting with beaded wings the June Tabor \ Scott Walker album, but aside from that I'd love to hear Madonna dueting with Susan Boyle and Sheena Wellington plus, although I am aware this may be unlikely, I think Elton John's take on Martin Carthy's catalogue would be very good, with the guitar parts transcribed to piano.

I'd always hoped for "Enoch Powell Sings Tamla Motown".

I've often thought I'd like to hear a folk cover album of X Ray Spex's Germ Free Adolescents. It's a very modal album - would sound great on accordions, fiddles and DADGAD guitars. I can imagine Martin Carthy, John Kirkpatrick and others singing those songs very well.

An entire album of the sort of folk songs Sue Ferrar experimented with on her "A Boy Leaves Home" album would be great (there's only two on there...)

A second album from James Raynard

A second album from Michael Rossiter

A Rick Rubin-produced Tom Paley album

Oh, and here's a cheeky 6th: a Voice Of the People-style compilation of the best singers I've heard doing floorspots at Sharps Folk Club, Musical Traditions and Cellar Upstairs. Sharps in particular. I've only been there twice, but both times I've been struck by the idea that a decent, straightforward recording on two good mics, would make for a great Alan Lomax-style field recording of an album.

And a seventh! I've always thought Billy Childish could sing a great folk album. He's come close, with the Singing Loins, and the country blues of Chatham Singers.
