Probably not a favourite at The Bullingdon Club disco.

2nd coming of the band with little in common with the 70s outfit - this is really rather good. More than that in fact. I loved it.

Beggars Opera - Touching The Edge

I’ve followed this Italian band’s progress and in this their 3rd album they seem less heavy and more progressive - down the Anglagard path maybe.

The occasional dissonance slightly puts me on my guard but actually there is much to like here.

Not A Good Sign - Icebound

Scottish band from the 60s who are now credited as having played a significant part in the birth of the British prog scene, having admirers and audience members at the time including Bowie, Emerson, Wakeman, Fripp and many more.

You guys may already know all about them but if not it is worth reading up. It’s another one of those “they were nearly huge” stories but luck was against them it seems.

Their recorded output apparently doesn’t do justice to their live work but as their story is completely new to me I can do nothing other than dive straight in. Sounds very good so far, even if the odd Beatles-style novelty song (e.g. Grandad) is entirely progless.

Medieval-style folk, recorded in 1973. This band later recorded as Stone Angel.

Cross - Wake Up Call

New to me Swedish band’s 9th album released in 2012. Not soul stirring after a couple of plays but decent.

Sad to see Maartin Alcock has terminal cancer....

Hello everyone. People were saying after my appearances at Cropredy last year that I was unwell. I was not. I’d lost weight because I had discovered the joy of exercise and was working out regularly. I was actually very fit and any illness was far beyond the horizon.

This year was meant to be my travel gap year. I was going to revisit friends and favourite places around the world before slowing down to enjoy the evening of my years. I made it as far as Madeira in January for some heat, a place I’d never considered before, but I loved it. Such a beautiful fragrant isle, truly a paradise.

A week after my return, I developed jaundice, and had to go to hospital. Scans and tests revealed that there were more sinister things happening inside me. Now the race is run and the final chapter has begun, and my liver cancer is terminal. I am in absolutely no pain or discomfort at this time. For the time being, to look at, you wouldn’t think there was much wrong with me. I am fully mobile, with energy, eating and sleeping well, and totally at peace with what the future holds. How long that future lasts is anyone’s guess, but I probably won’t make it to next summer. I shall play my final live performance at the Fairport Cropredy Convention this August, but I shall continue to make music while I draw breath. My main priority now is to finish the autobiography I began in January, and which now has an additional final chapter. I had no idea the deadline was so strict then. I will go with dignity, good humour and good grace. I just have to wait now for transport back to my own planet. I only came for the curry anyway.

So, do not be sad. I achieved everything I ever wanted to do from daydreaming in a council house in north Manchester to travelling the world with my heroes, playing to thousands and thousands of people, and getting paid for it. I have lived a lot, laughed a lot and loved a lot, and I shall leave this planet with eternal love and gratitude for my wife Jan, my three children Madeleine, Jered and Jane, and their mum Gill, and all of you who took any interest in this mad northerner. Thank you all so much. Be happy and shower the people you love with love.
