[Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.]
Track 14 is “Nottamun Town”, recorded on 29 May 1968 in Studio 1, 201 Piccadilly for John Peel’s Top Gear show, broadcast on 2 June 1968, precisely the same details as for Tracks 1 and 13. This is another perfectly faithful rendition of the song from “What We Did…”, but this does have Ian Matthews on vocals with Sandy Denny, unlike Track 12.
Track 15 is “Fotheringay”, recorded on 4 February 1969 in Studio 1, 201 Piccadilly for Symonds on Sunday, and broadcast on 9 February 1969, precisely the same details as for Track 11. This recording is notable by the DJ talking over the introductory guitar, and also similarly over the instrumental cadence. I had this on some other record or two, and had always thought it was Alan Freeman. I must admit I cannot now recall how David Symonds sounded, so it could have been him “doing” an Alan Freeman; or maybe Alan freeman was standing in for him that day. Apart from these spoken additions, again this is a faultless clone of the studio recording on “What We Did…”.
The remaining tracks comprise 3 from the “Unhalfbricking” line up, with Ric Grech on violin on two of them, and finally 2 from the “Liege & Lief” combo. We therefore stray in the next post from the main theme of buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
