yeah, alright already! I'm still here but have been fairly busy
seeing what I can do with my system so that I can record reasonably
well with it, also have been playing about with recording software.

I'm glad that you started this new thread off, I felt very guilty
after hijacking Peters thread like that, many apologies Peter if you are reading this.

Spot, if my memory serves me right, (which it probably doesn't,
remembering a few posts back on the other thread), I seem to recall
you being a friend of Dave the Gnome. Is this correct?

I was going to PM you for contact details, but unless you have just lost your cookie for the moment I can't, if you know Dave however I
could contact him for your details.

As I said before I won't forget that you want this, and am working on
it, it may take a little while before I get things sorted out but it
will be done. Hang tough good bud!

Will be in touch one way or another.

Cheers for now.

Cattail !

Ah, thanks for that Noreen, obviously got the wrong dawg.

Incidentally I don't know DtG personally either, neither have I managed to get to the Swinton club as I am way the other side
of town, the only reason I asked was because it would have been an easy way to get Spot's details without putting them on open web.

Spot, try to reset your cookie then I can contact you. I am getting
there with sorting things out, but it ain't quite as easy as it seems at first, I have moved bits of my system around, which has got rid of the hum I had on it, so that's a good thing. Getting levels right is
the next hurdle, then we might be cooking with gas, (as they say in the trade).

We really need to PM each other (oooohhheeeerrrr)as neither you or I
want to put personal information on an open web, so get that sorted
out if you can, then we'll take it from there.

Bye for now.

Hi again Spot, sorry I can't help you on the cookie thing, I'm not
*too* bad on computers but rubbish at e-mails and bits like that,
(I never use 'em, more trouble than their worth), thats just one of
the reasons I liked mudcat when I first came here, I could put a
message on without having e-mail. (I now have it, but it's not set up
and I would have to find out how to use it).

Anyway, when you get sorted out you won't be the guest-Spot anymore,
it's the main act for you. (Grooaann). Sorry, just can't resist bad
jokes.

I'm trying out various things now and getting better at knowing
how the programs work, so we are moving forward.

It's getting harder to type now with a cat sat on my knee and
trying to wash my shirt, so I'll leave the cookie problem with
you, I'm sure one of the great people on here will be able to
put you right soon.

See you soon

Hi all! Sorry to have neglected you over the last few days, I've been busy with this sticking things on CD lark, plus other things.

First, Noreen, thanks for trying to help with spot's cookie problem, it's appreciated.

Second, 8 Pints, yes they did appear at the MSG, that was another
place I never got to! But, "somewhere" in my collection I have an
album called "Folk Session at the MSG" with five of the Pennines tracks on it. I have a feeling however that this album is in pretty poor condition and it may be hard to take tracks off it, (it's bad enough with good ones, I look after mine and they've STILL got little clicks etc on them).

Spot, I see from the help forum, (thanks for the clicky Noreen, i'm glad someone can do them), that you're still fighting the machine,
would it be easier to just do what I did and get a new e-mail address,
and log in, maybe as a new member? (can this be done? Is it good, bad or......?)

Once again I'll leave it with you, you can always leave another message on here if needed.

byeeeeee.

Apparently the group at first called themselves The Pennines and later changed their name to The Pennine Folk.

Information about them is rather sparse on the Internet, but I found this [I tidied up the ALL CAPS, punctuation and spelling a bit but I have no idea whether the musicians' names are spelled correctly]:

From http://www.myspace.com/thepennines:

Manchester Morning

The Pennines are:- Margaret Whitehead (lead vocal) Ken Campbell (vocal & songwriter) Chris Swan (lead guitar) Frank Clapton (bass vocal) Pete Astles (rhythm guitar & tenor vocal). In the 1960s five musicians united to form the Pennines, the group was formed by Ken Campbell & Lynton & Ann McConnel who were joined by Margaret & Frank & then Pete Bowler & Chris Swan. Their first record was 'Both Sides of the Pennines' recorded at Manchester's Sports Guild. A contemporary, folk-orientated acoustic harmony group whose music successfully captured the sights and sounds of their urban environment. Stepping off the overnight train into the cold grey light of a northern dawn they stepped into the world of the early-morning people?street traders, derelicts sleeping rough, flower sellers & the dreamers & all the inhabitants of that rarely observed world that existed at a time when most of us lay in our beds somewhere between sleeping & waking. Some of the beautifully articulate songs on this album reflect the experiences of that morning. As talented creators of original music, the Pennines refused to be confined by harsh city landscapes & draw equal inspiration from a magical tapestry of sea legends & tales of medieval rebellion. Like Pentangle, Magna Carta & James Taylor, great care was taken in their production of both instrumental & vocal arrangements?a fact self-evident as this was their debut album in 1971. This album has stood the test of time, even now when they get back together & play they are received by full capacity crowds. After two reunion concerts in 2006 the group will be performing at the "Pulling Strings" concert at New Mills Town Hall on April 14th 2007. For details or tickets email Pete Bowler on:- ..................... [sic] This album has been digitally remastered at Riffmaster Studios www.myspace.com/riffmasterstudios

* * *
Albums:

"Both Sides of the Pennines" by The Pennines, 1971.

"Manchester Morning" by The Pennines, Penny Farthing (label) #761, 1971.

*
There is a YouTube video called Pennine Folk that contains samples of about 1-minute each of several different songs. It doesn't give any song titles or an album title.

*
Another YouTube video called The Pennines Hyde Club Manchester contains an audio track of MANCHESTER MORNING, which I assume is sung by the Pennines, but the audio doesn't match the video.

*
From a message by C. Stuart Cook posted 5-Dec-2006 titled "Pennine Folk Reunion" at a site called http://newsgroups.derkeiler.com:

Too late for anyone to go I'm afraid but Saturday night saw a sell out reunion concert by The Pennine Folk at their old venue at Hyde United Social Club.

The Hyde United Folk Club was one of the biggest & liveliest of the big group clubs in the 60's/70's and was a stage for all big names at various stagers of their careers. Jasper Carrot did an early floor spot before he really got going as an act in his own right.

The Taverners did one of the first performances of "Bread & Fishes". The Oaklands did the first performance of "Matchstalk Men" when Mick Colemen was their Bass Player.

About the only difference to the venue is new tiles in the toilets. Everyone else was greyer & plumper but in good health. Ken Cambell has suffered a stroke in recent years but played an active part on stage.

Principal MC duties fell to Chris Swann as the Pennines did a good job of recapturing their unique sound. 6 strong only Anne McConnell was missing from the lineup. Margaret Worral, always one of the finest singers of the period got back into fine voice after a couple of number " Crazy Mad Michael" & "Slightly Faded" showed just how good along with Chris's superb guitar settings.

Support by Anne & Shelley English. Werneth Low & Ian Dawes among others brought back memories to the packed audience. Principal among the audience was Harold Neild, Still hale and hearty. Harold was instrumental in giving the Pennines a stage at The Bush Folk Club and later went on to be host to the famous Folk in the Kitchen at the Crosskeys in Uppermill where he was the landlord, This club still runs but now in the barn at the pub.

I don't think there are really any 6/7 piece guitar/voice groups singing any more, economics and audience numbers conspire against them. But believe me it was fantastic to hear a blast form the old days.

Apart from everyone having a great time, over £2,000 was raised for Christy's hospital Cancer Charity.

My posting mentioned above was actually to this forum somewhere. I'll be having a meal with Chris Swann at Christmas. The impressive head of hair has been swapped for an impressive girth He still plays the guitar and still has his old Levin. He's now a full time artist with a studio in Vernon Mill in Stockport producing some stunning lanscapes that sell well.

There were many other members of the group. Pete Astles and Judith?? were two when Lynton and Anne left. Also Henry Bell a business partner of Chris's. There were one or two other occasionals when a jazzier sound was added towards the groups end.

Chris later went on to be part of an exceptional trio called Sunwheel, that won a Melody Maker competition. Anne Chester and his mate Rob Carrol(?). Anne had first appeared as a floor spot at the Hyde United. She went back to America (Denver?)where she later appeared as a DJ on a local station, I believe. Their rendition of CArrie was a showstopper

Cheryl Gibbons then joined. They released a single dedicated to Red Rum.

So Chris has come a long way from designing fruit machines then!

I've not seen any of them in years and my memory may be failing me but I'm not sure whether Ann Chester was ever a member of Sunwheel. My recollection is that Sunwheel comprised Chris, Cheryl and Rob from the start. Cheryl and Rob ran the Saturday night session at Stalybridge station (with certain regulars such as Clive Gregson and Les Barker). The session survived Rob's enforced work move to Nottingham but not the subsequent one to London - I particularly remember the party on the 15th floor of the Rolls Royce Tower!

I remember that Ann Chester first moved from her flat in Hyde, to London and, the last I heard of her, she was intending to move to her parents place in South Carolina but that would be 30 odd years ago.

The days......

Oh, and I think you'll find the Red Rum song somewhere on youtube.

The first song I wrote for The Pennine Folk was 'Hattersley'. It during the mid '60s because we needed some new material! Ah! those were the days! In the '70s I amended it slightly because Dame Thora Herd wanted to perform it as a monologue in a BBC TV series.   We put the original version on our LP 'BOTH SIDES OF THE PENNINES' and I'm sure its on YOU TUBE somewhere.

Ken -

It would be great to have the LPs re-issued on CD. There'd be a huge demand - the LPs are fetching silly prices on eBay.

I'm still trying to get the words to The Ballad of Gypsy Moth IV.

Hey ho, roll and go,
Round the Horn in the months of snow,
How many times can a man defy
The raging seas and the rolling sky?

I have it on reel-reel tape somewhere - but that may not be playable after neigh on 50 years!!

Having just bought The Pennine Folk's definitive album "Both Sides Of The Pennines" I have been digitising and cleaning up the recording- the LP was very badly damaged. Anyway I expected to find the song "Both Sides Of The Pennines" on it - but no.

There is however a version of this on YouTube at:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZyF6cz2Y0A

But where did this come from?

It couldn't have been from the Penny Farthing EP "The Pennines" This had only two songs on it - "Manchester Morning" and "Danny McCann"

http://www.45cat.com/record/pen761

So which album had "Both Sides Of The Pennines" on it 'cos it wasn't "Both Sides Of The Pennines"?!!

Ken - your ballad of Chichester's Gypsey Moth was hugely influential in my becoming interested in tall ship sailing - which I still persue. It has taken 50+ years to obtain the words. The tunes and chorus has maggoted around my brsin all that time. Now we have discovered a Cornucopia of recordings of folk programmes from the 1960/70/80s - including of the Pennine Folk. The Group had many appearances on these. Take care and thank you for all of your songs. P.S. If only the Group's LPs could come out on CD!!!

the words and music of my song Gypsy Moth lie in my archives somewhere!! but I am dead cuffed that you have found them to be inspirational. Since I suffered a heart attack last June, but as they say round here, I'm still ganin, the task of searching for them might prove a little difficult. one way might be to let me see the words you haveor have mugged up and then I can move on from there . Ken.

Ken - wonderful that you are up and about again. Tthe Ballad of Gypsy Moth is here:

thread.cfm?threadid=141074

It's a rollicking good song, and well fitted the mood of the country at the time.

We've found a few old BBC radio programmes featuring The Pennine Folk. How can we send them to you?
