Was reading an on line Melody Maker from June 1969, and "Songs for a Tailor" was mentioned. Never realised the title was dedicated to Richard Thompson's girlfriend, who sadly died when the Fairport's mini bush crashed. Apparently, she was a seamstress and had designed some of the clothing worn by Cream


Thanks - I didn't know that

Musically better than vocally, a good solid band, not quite Premier League but enjoyable in parts

True

I have a few of their albums and was thinking recently that I need to revisit one or two.

I recall Spyglass was possibly their best

What's interesting about this one is that about half the tracks are co-written by Steve Gould lead singer/bassist with Rare Bird.

Steve was a member of The Alvin Lee Band in the 80s before TYA reformed

It's bloody fantastic stuff - isn't it?

I think it's Rory's best live album

I played it again earlier. the acoustic material is stunning

A couple of classy live albums from recent years.

And a bit more class.

And this - bit too ambient for my tastes really but it didn’t offend like some of that nonsense does.

I don't have the knowledge to judge whether it's his best; it is a fantastic album and I'd be surprised if there's a better - long time since I heard Irish Tour '74 which impressed me somewhat back in the day.

Irish Tour is excellent as is Live in Europe.

I love Stage Struck which is later and really eyeballs out stuff - IT ROCKS! (really 'rocks'). It documents Rory's world tour in support of his 1979 album Top Priority. The album sees him taking a faster-paced, more hard rock sound than on his previous blues-dominated live albums.

I enjoy the BBC live set too from the 2CD BBC Sessions. But better still is the The Beat Club Sessions

JJ if you are not Rory-ed out listen to Stage Struck from 1979- it will have you swaying in multi-planes!





However, Check Shirt Wizard is the most rounded.

First time I've played The Wall in years, sounded better than I remembered - I must be becoming more mature.
