Our next Sunday Vinyl Session (our 4th) is a little bit special: the album, Pink Floyd's 'Relics', has been chosen by Martin Stephenson - he of the Daintees - who will not only curate the afternoon, but also be playing a gig later in the evening in the very same pub!
We've kind of broken our own rule regarding compilation albums with this one, but, hey, it's a belter. Although it's obviously very much Syd's collection (it was Barrett's band, after all), Dave Gilmour can be heard setting his stall out on Side 2.
Here's a rather tasty bit of footage of a Gilmour gig at the Albert Hall in 2006. With very little by way of introduction Gilmour brings an old friend up on stage...
Where? Running Horse, Nottingham
When? Sunday 14 July 2019 - Relics 2-5pm; Martin Stephenson gig 8-10pm
Oh how I'd love to be there for this one. Unfortunately I have a long pre-arranged covering shift at work. Really gutted.ReplyDelete
Great to watch Bowie's last UK stand once again.
You know you have an open invitation anytime TS.Delete
This event is really building up steam - You're onto a winner it seems and have found a gap in the market.ReplyDelete
That's a great clip and Bowie is looking so well and youthful. Sad that his time as an Earthling was cut short.
It's early days Alyson but, yes, so far so good.Delete
As for Bowie, what can I say? He was on form that night, nothing's so sure.
Martin Stephenson! That's the coolest, John. Boat to Bolivia is considered one of the greats in this little corner of the Internet. Give him my warmest regards. He may seem confused because we have never met, but never mind that. Semantics, you know. I don't know if you are into Wondermints (Brian Wilson's backing band), but they do a really nice version of Arnold Layne on their covers album Wonderful World of Wondermints.ReplyDelete
I'll pass on your regards, of course. "What do you mean, you don't know Brian?' I'll say. "Everyone knows Brian!"Delete
Yes, I know the Wondermints. 'In and out of Greg Lake' is a particular favourite; but no, I wasn't aware they'd covered Arnold Layne. But I am now, and quite splendid it is too.
