Very interesting interview with Steve up on Folk Radio UK. (Not a recording by the way, you can read it).

I'm afraid I also go back to the "Merlins" days of 1973 which he mentions. To sit at the feet of Steve and the amazing residents and guests of that club was an immense pleasure and education. Sandy Denny really DID fall over mike stands. And the floor spots - Bert Lloyd and Alan Stivell for instance.....

For all that I owe Steve a big debt. But the main things are his superb songwriting and performance, which are not as well known as they ought to be. Please check him out, he deserves it. Shameless plug.

Steve is a great songwriter. We had a mutual friend, the writer and film-maker, Roger Deakin, and Steve wrote a wonderful song about Roger just before he died.
