English guitars on the lawn ...

Postby billy » 20 May 2020, 19:35

Since this place stemmed from the Mojo boards, does anyone remember a similarly titled small feature in an early-ish issue of Mojo?

"English guitars on the lawn ..."

or

"English guitars at dawn ...

It was a playlist really, before such things were wrapped up in such terms. I'd love to find it and see what was listed? Probably a load of crap as my memory is hot these days *glum emoticon*


Hope you are all keeping suitably happy and safe

... memory is 'shot', not 'hot'

I don't remember that one! I assume it had some sort of theme. If so, what was it?
Maybe we could construct a new one...
Bugger off.

I suppose the theme was 'delicate English sensibilities'. But not overly twee and contrived. Just anything quintessentially English, so Drake, Martyn, Fay, Ayres, etc.

Well, I bought Tea & Symphony - The English Baroque Sound (1968 - 1974) last week. Compiled by Bob Stanley. Very impressed and just the job on these hot sunny days.



Lovely sleeve and extensive notes.

Rain forecast for tomorrow though.

I like the sound of that.
