      it was on the nuggets comp WAAAAAY before david holmes sampled it. he also samples the track &#39;pepper mint store&#39; on the track before it and keeps the record running, cheeky&#33;
      did any one get-on the scene in &#39;clockwork orange&#39; with sunforest playing in the background, (that completes a circle).

      ive got a comp called &quot;folk is not a four letter word&quot; coming out in the summer on Cherry Red and i&#39;m in two minds about the &#39;gotta co my best&#39; track. for me chris harwood is a three tracker and this is the lick yet remaining to be comped... am i right, i&#39;m not that clued up on compilations.

      OK &#39;Fear Itself&#39; is one of the best records around (as are all the first three mcillwaine albums) shes got abit of a hendrix obsession but &#39;underground river&#39; and &#39;born under a bad sign&#39; are SERIOUS&#33;&#33;&#33;

          as I said, tried to license it for one of my Harmless LPs but couldn&#39;t track down the label at all - if you can do it legally you&#39;re a better man than I&#33;

          second the Fear Itself, by the way...

              Yeah,the Gather In The Mushrooms CD has been pretty busy in my car.
              Best bits for me are Bert Jansch and Sandy Denny...I&#39;ve got to get to know more of their stuff.The Buffalo track sounds like the Eagles crossed with REM to me but it gets a nice little groove on about 3/4 the way in.
              Good to hear the original &#39;Love Song&#39; as well.
              Back to Neuuuuuuuuuu!

                      Apparently it&#39;s pricey as hell, with even reissues drawing ££ on ebay. Someone on here did do me a cd-r of &#39;First Utterance&#39;, and it&#39;s pretty cool stuff, though - very much things lurking in woodsheds kind of dark folk. Well worth the effort, if you can find it, but one that requires a very particular frame of mind to get into properly. Get into it, and you won&#39;t want to hear anything else...

                      On the subject (and sorry for ritually bringing up Vashti Bunyan, as in every folk thread ever) but does anyone know if the &#39;Train Song&#39; she did for the Immediate label - that was oddly left off the reissue of her LP, which did have the flip on it - is the same &#39;Train Song&#39; done by Pentangle etc, or a different song altogether?

                      Saw an interview with her in Dazed &amp; Confused a few months ago that hinted she&#39;d been thinking about recording some of the songs she&#39;d been writing for herself over the years, too, so that would be a turn-up worth hearing if it happened. Nice to see she&#39;s on good form, anyway.

                      Favourite quote in the piece:

                      &quot;I read somewhere recently that my songs couldn&#39;t be written now without sounding ridiculous. The thing is, in 1970 they were seen as ridiculous&quot;.

                        Just a side note. Does anyone here read the &#39;tapestry of delights&#39; book? Its also online so google for it. Utterly amazing guide to UK psych/prog/folk. I dip into it all the time researching things. Well worth the £20 or so to get it.

                              One folk LP that I used to have (that disappeared in my Uni days along with so many other records) that seemed to be quite readily available but I never see it in the wild these days is Kenny Rankin&#39;s &#39;Silver Morning&#39;. I used to like playing &#39;In The Name Of Love&#39; and &#39;Berimbau&#39;.

                              Does anyone see this around still? One I keep asking the various dealers I see to keep an eye out for, but no luck thus far.

                                I&#39;m putting a rare UK psych LP on the Bay soon that&#39;s been known to reach 700 pounds, I&#39;m going to use any proceeds to finally track down a Harwood. I&#39;ve not even been close to one of these&#33;&#33;&#33;
