      1. They played the Troubador for about a week in 1973 because they were recording a live LP- and we all went for two or three of the shows. Back then I knew Albert Lee who was the guitarist for Head Hands and Feet and he had been in band called Fotheringay with Denny so he knew all of them – they drank warm Guiness beer and Swarbrick played the whole gig with a cigarette in his mouth

      2. Yes yes, I know Fotheringay! I think I have some of their stuff, or did, somewhere. Oh, neat.
        When she sings Ballad of Easy Rider it makes me want to cry sometimes, it’s so perfect and beautiful. Plus it hits this one particular sad spot in me every time. You know, some songs hit “broken-hearted sad,” some hit “feeling blue and low sad,” others get into “bittersweet sad” or “oh, if only… sad.” Ballad of Easy Rider, though… I’ll have to listen to it and nail what it is, precisely.
        PLUS she covers one of the best Buddy Holly songs ever ever ever. Learning the Game.

  1. Oh, god, I love hippies. And Brit folk. I’ve seen only recent incarnations (and Richard Thompson solo) but I own practically everything. But seeing them in a recorded live performance from 1970? Oh, thank you.
