Re: RNC unauthorized use of "Hallelujah" as finale to Convention Festivities

I hope Biden quickly counteracts Trump by getting permission to play "Democracy" at his rallies!

Re: ‘They booed Joni Mitchell and threw s**t at Jimi Hendrix’: The amazing story of the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival

Here's a finely-tuned piece on my own memories the festival (I posted an earlier version here some years ago): My own memories of the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 remain very clear. Although I appreciated most of the acts appearing, my main reason for going to the event was to see Leonard Cohen, who ...

Re: ‘They booed Joni Mitchell and threw s**t at Jimi Hendrix’: The amazing story of the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival

I read that article earlier. It covers certain aspects of the festival quite well, but I don't remember anything being thrown at Jimi (unless it's metaphorical). Also, I don't think it was Joni that was being booed; only the disruptive people that she was addressing.

Kenny White in Concert Video

This is a full concert on a high quality video by a truly excellent singer-songwriter. I urge people to watch and listen to it from start to finish. Kenny White has supported Judy Collins more than once in the U.K., and David Crosby played on his last album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRMvk6UiA...

First time I've heard about it too, Alan! I wonder if David himself knew he was Australian? :D

Re: R.I. P. Julie Felix

Like many from the Sixties generation I first saw Julie Felix on David Frost’s “Frost Report” programme on TV. For those of us in the U.K., Julie was the “English” Joan Baez, introducing the public to many great folk artists (though some will only remember her for the song “Going to the Zoo”). Somew...

R.I. P. Julie Felix

Very sad news. My dear friend Julie Felix has passed-on, after a short illness. If you search for "Julie Felix" on Facebook and Google, you should now find several tribute articles.

Perla Batalla at the Union Chapel (30th Nov. 2019)

Solo concerts by Leonard's ladies don't usually seem to attract large audiences, and previously, when playing in London, artists such as Anjani Thomas, Sharon Robinson, and the Webb Sisters have tended to play at smaller venues such as Green Note, the Jazz Cafe or Bush Hall. To the contrary, Islingt...
