Hancock at his best.

Had a friend who gave you a choice with her gravy and custard. Lumps or slices.

I drove to my Daughter's on Saturday evening.. to do a bit of DIY for her.  Much as I love Sarah Vaughan's 1954 eponymous album.. It had been on repeat in the car for a while...

 

So.. at one of the many sets of lights on the A580 'East Lancs Road'.. I rummaged in my discs.. as you do.. and came up with 'Penguin Eggs' by Nic Jones.  A classic 1980s Folk album. Sadly Nic was prevented from fulfilling his potential after a serious road accident.. but if he only ever did this album.. he made his mark. Terrific guitar work. and then that strong voice..

Brilliant choice Col., i love "Penguin Eggs". My late brother did me a copy many years ago and first thing I did when I got my first pc, was to copy it to hard drive. Now I can play it without searching through my pile of CDs. Some terrific tracks on there.

One of my favourites is, "Barret street", along with "The Little Pot Stove".

Good one Ben, The Banana Boat Song and Island in the Sun are two of his other classic calypso songs

Always wanted to go to Jamaica to watch the cricket and fancied having a go at making one of those steel pan drums made from oil drums.

He is still going strong at 94.

Yes Ben, I remember when England wanted a new fast bowler they just shouted down the shaft at one of the local pits.

I enjoy most music genres but certainly not Opera or (c)RAP music. Trad Jazz I don't mind but not too keen on the other types.

Ben I was expecting to hear the theme from the shipping forecast Sailing By Ronald Binge Same goes for the Rod Stewart song, Sailing that is.

I thought I was fairly clued up about 'pop' music etc.. from my formative years... So when a bit of Youtube searching suddenly made me aware of the late Edie Sedgewick.. I was gobsmacked that she'd managed to stay under my radar. All of her story is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edie_Sedgwick

 

But, briefly, she was from very old US money and brought up by a controlling and abusive father. She came to prominence as an associate of Andy Warhol and his 'Factory'..but soon split with him.  She is alleged to have had a relationship with Bob Dylan.. who was not a fan of Warhol.. and warned her of him..but details are sketchy and contested.

What is less contested is that Dylan wrote several of his major songs about her:

I don't think even Dylan would have written such sarcasm had he known she would die a few years later aged only 28.

 

Edie Sedgewick. 1943-1971

Don't know where you sourced your info there DJ? Over 50 year old recollections in this age, can, be, at best 'soundbites'.

 

There was biopic..ish, called, The Factory about a decade ago, if I remember had a few interviews with Edie at the end, could have been the Cavett show?

I don't get what you are saying HSR.  I got most of my info from the wikipedia page which I clearly linked to in my post... though I did read around a little elsewhere. It seems to me that most of the facts of her life..and untimely death.. are known.  So whose 50 year old recollections are you referring to?
