Pete Seeger - 1970

Very unfortunately, our Uncle Pete has passed on. It really does boggle the mind when you think about the length of his career and the strength of his convictions. He never did just walk the walk.

This is a short film from 44 years ago that doesn't circulate as much as it should. Imagine that he was 50 years old at the time & loving every moment of it.

A Little Celebration

This interesting little guy turned up at the birthday celebration of the wife of a friend of ours. Bask in the wonderous glory of it all through a few updated Robyn Hitchcock posts -

Live Death
Exploding In Silence
Unhatched Crablings
Uncarved Pumpkins

Zendik Orgaztra - Strontium Rain


I have *no* idea how I ended up with this in the collection.  But, I have to say, having given it a listen, it's very trippy indeed..

Barretts vs High-Jackers


I have recently been digging through the Deep Archives & have come up with a number of really weird items that I will share in the coming days.  This first one is a mail-order item.  The first side of the cassette is entirely Barrett covers.  The second side is full of covers of a variety of other psychedelic bands.  Some of the editing is a little haphazard.  But, some of the covers are pretty creative.

David Gilmour - 1992-07-28 - BBC Radio One

The previous post made me want to seek out the full radio broadcast that first revealed the demos to the punters.  These days, the demos of Money and Comfortably Numb are available in better quality (and more complete) in the Immersion box sets, and the Learning To Fly and Like A Rolling Stone demos are slightly better quality on "Secret Rarities Rev.A".

I haven't heard this one in years & years...  Gives me great pleasure to be able to share it here.
