Hi People. Just to let all participants know.....We are on the verge of finishing the new Nic Jones CD (A sequel to "In search of...") It will be called "Unearthed" ....It's a double.....!! The sleeve is either appalling, or brilliant...! (Nic, Julia and I think it's brilliant!!)....and it willl be available later in the summer.....exclusively from Mollie Music......More details to follow... Any specific requests....get in touch soon.... We're intending a mid-price deal...don't know what that is in US terms, but probably under £20 UK, for roughly 100 minutes of music......25-30 tracks...all of which are otherwise unavailable....E me, or reply to this thread Muchlove....Ralphie (I'll be glad when it's out...LOL!)

I hope that you'll post here again when Nic's new CD is available, with full details of how to get hold of it. Thank you for helping get Nic's work out to the public. Nic's interpretations of songs and tunes have been inspirational for so many of us (I'm glad I've still got all the old LPs). I know that shameless plugging of one artist's work is not the norm on Mudcat, but Nic's particular circumstances transcend all that.

Requests? Please, if possible, 'Dobro Part out of Cheating Heart' which I've been humming in the bath etc, for years now without knowing the words, and 'Knight tries to rescue Damsel in tower, but gets eyes pulled out'. I only heard Nic do the last one once, the last time I saw him perform, but it was a real shivers down the spiner! Thanks to you, Nic, and Julia for this new CD set - I'll buy it no matter what's on it.

PS - Fourteen year old 'pop, indie and irish music' daughter asked to borrow 'Penguin Eggs' CD last night! Why? Reply was :'Well Dad, its like that folk music stuff you listen to - but different.' Transcends generations too?

Yup, this is the release I posted about . . (I'll put in a blue clicky thingy when I've a spare moment). When I spoke to Ralph they hadn't finally decided on whether to go for a double CD, so I didn't want to raise folks hopes.

If you want to go on Ralph's email list to be notified when Unearthed is unearthed then either "personal message" me here or email me (ghawes@advaoptical.com) with your email address and I'll make sure you're added to the list.

Oh, and since the marvelous Ralphie is far too modest - I'll mention he's performing at Sidmouth this year both as part of his "Girlie Band" and as part of his "Boy Band". Look out for him!

Cheers!

Are these previously unreleased tracks, or just unreleased on CD?. (I have the early LP's). I also have a few live recordings (from Pontardawe, c1973)of songs which don't seem to have been released before, and would like to get hold of them if possible.

Neil. All the tracks on "Unearthed" will be previously unreleased (apart from Warlike Lads of Russia" and "Fordie" which have been released by the good people of Fellside records) We've avoided songs from the "Lost" 4 early Nic albums, in the probably forlorn hope that one day they will see the light of day......Fat Chance I know, but just maybe.....!! I'm tempted to ask to hear your Pontadawe recordings...but !! I've got to stop somewhere...!! Rest assured that "Unearthed" will be a stonker..! And....George...! Little chance of Colin and I having any time before Sid to bone up on old ERIC stuff, and anyway, It wouldn't be the same without the Old Fella there in person...Maybe some Nigel Tunes may creep into the PJD repertoire as time goes on...

Yes, I know that . . But I did say "tribute" rather than "recreation"! We need to educate all these youngsters about the "Old Fella" (actually, we're the old ones, he's forever young . . . )

Still, I can dream - and remember . .

(IIRC Stocai's "Ralph's Tune" is Nigel's, isn't it?)

Ralphie, just a question, were the "Warlike lads of Russia" and "Fordie" tracks recorded for Fred Wood's Folk Roots albums, and if so are there any more of Nic's songs from these sessions?.
From what I remember, Fred produced two albums for new subscribers to his mag, and these contained unique recordings by Nic, Archie Fisher and many others.
Thinks out loud - "I wonder where the origional masters for these albums are"
thanks, not just for your answer but for all your good work,

Ralphie. I may be able to let you have copies of the Pontardawe session, (my email is cobform@email.com) but quality on the early cassette recorders wasn't great!. I will probably copy it to a CD. 'Warlike sons of Russia' was one of the tracks - I didn't know it had been released. I think his guitar work on 'The blind harper' was better in the live version than the recording. I have Nic's first 3 LPs on Vinyl, but I wasn't keen on Penguin eggs, and never bought it. I also have Songs of a Changing World, where he is one of the three singers. (I was originally from Romford area, and did see Nic at Chelmsford and other local clubs.)

The early to Mid 70s stuff is very thin on the ground, hence my previous reference to "Allandale!"

Lass of Loch Royal - He gives a little background on the abbreviated version before singing it, but its almost lost in the noise. I will try and get a version to anyone interested, but as I said, be warned it was recorded on a primitive 1970 cassette recorder in a noisy club!

Well Done Ralph. Thanks for all your work and for standing by Nic and keeping the faith all these years. As for the Lost Four. Isn't it about time the culprit who jealously guards the Rights was outed and subjected to International pressure on a scale that might at least bring deserved infamy. Only £20.00? A lot of us would happily pay twice that as long as we knew the profits were going to Nic and the wonderful Julia.

Terry....Of course you can have a copy !! We're down to arguing about sleeve notes now, so, the end is in sight. Mark...I hear what you're saying about Mr B...Beleive me when I say that "No turn has been left un-stoned" with regards to this subject (see threads passim - ed) I take the view that if we all keep cool, the gradual drip - drip of opinion will win...maybe a boycott of all CM releases...? I'm just happy that I was in the position to help on this project. And with regards to the price....Not fixed yet, but the whole reason that Julia set up "Mollie Music" was to cut out the very people of whom you speak! (Hardly surprising) So....A complete running order will appear here FIRST! In the next few weeks...Regards Ralphie

It comes from a poem somewhere, you get no stone unturned, no tern unstoned, and no tone unsterned, whatever that may mean. I remember seeing it years ago, but have no idea where - perhaps I will search the net

Hi Ralphie & good for you with all you've done with the Jones. I would also love to get Nic's double CD when it arrives. And your mention of CM releases, I don't know alot of the history with this situation but from the little I do know if you told me who or what CM is I'd be happy to boycott them. You have right here at your disposal an international collection of folk music musicians & fans who probably would love to support Nic in this way.

I was just listening to some Nic Jones and I can't wait until this new double Cd comes out. He is truly one of the best I have ever heard.

It is a crime that his first 4 Cds are being held hostage by someone that won't put them out, or apparently let anyone else do it. I am pretty sure that this is the same person that is responsible for Dick Gaughan's Kist O' Gold Cd being out of print.

I think I would just bootleg my own Cds if it were me.

Good luck to you on this new project!

Terry

To get Unearthed either let Ralph or mr have your email address (I'm only compiling a list for Ralph . . neither of us is always regular here . . ) [You can email me on ghawes@advaoptical.com). Ralph will let folks know when it's ready . .

As for the Bulmer/Celtic Music saga - I'll try to post a brief outline as a new thread . . the trouble a number of us face is knowing what we can say publicly as opposed to what we've been told "in confidence", where there may be good reasons for not going public. Yes, it is the same saga that has Kist o'gold out of print, and the original M Simpson, and had the magnificent "Simpson and Friend" recording on Waterfront BRIEFLY out on CD and then lost again . . . (Can't think of its title; I always think of it as "Desperados waiting for a train").

As for Carinas . . With typical modesty Ralph leaves out a couple of significant details (as I recall). Like - he was supposed to be down there on holiday, and was asked if he could help the festival out of a hole by looking after the sound in there for one day . . . As he says, at the end of the week he staggered out of the black hole, having had a less than restful "holiday".

Oh, Radway Wednesday sounds great . . . subject to it not clashing with Chris's workshops. You WILL invite Colin, won't you?? (And I'll try to ensure our "little" daughter comes along, too . . )

Thanks Dita/John . .

Was that REALLY only his second album?? Was Golden Vanity the only Leader/Trailer album then?

I thought Special Agent was after he was duoing with June Tabor . . certainly it's the album with the Andy Cronshaw "usual suspects" . . Ralphie, too, will remmeber those days well . . .

Especially (I hope) the "Andy Cronshaw and . . " with June Tabor where she sang "Catch a falling star" as the encore to a concert which is one of those magical memories (was it in the Bloomsbury or the Shaw Theatre). I seem to recall a pretty exceptional sound engineer that evening . . . (atually I recall seeing the sound engineer in the interval and us all being near tears at the sheer beauty and power of it . . )

GeorgeH,
stop spitting blood over Anon, and get back to Martin Simpson.
As far as I'm aware "Golden Vanity" was the only Trailer release, then after a gap of a couple or three years it was "A Cut Above", with JT. Then "Special Agent", with the usual suspects from "Cut", then back to Topic for "Grinning in your face" and "Sad and High Kicking", I never got to see him up in Scotland until the early 80's but Fred Wood's had made such a fuss about him, I had bought "Vanity" years before.
Now stop all that blood spiting, that's just what he's looking for,
love, john.

Dita . . thanks, but it's hard . .

Yes, you are right . . I checked the info. on "Special Agent". I was surprised there was no recording between Golden Vanity and Special Agent - especially since "Special Agent" was more-or-less a "side project" from his mainstream solo work of that time. (To me, Special Agent really sits alongside the second Andy Cronshaw Topic album, rather than being representative of Martin's work in the folk clubs of that time.)

I can't remember the year I first saw Martin . . however, it was the 2nd Bracknell Folk Festival, and that weekend was also the first time I saw June Tabor (this was some years before they were working together . . ) One thing I love about Martin and June is that there's nothing of the celebrity about them . . they are delightful people as well as sublime performers . .

Oh, and unless I'm very much mistaken Guest is a she . . her prejudices have finally given her away.

But thanks for the kind and calming words! They are appreciated, very much. And you've managed to switch me onto thinking pleasent thoughts.
