    Nicola is my fave too, it's one of those select albums nowadays that I still listen to all the way through. Really beautiful orchestrations, the strings, flutes...really great songs as well.

      Does anyone if there's any difference with the pressing quality between the Transatlantic and Reprise issues of Rosamary Lane? The US press seems to be significantly cheaper.

        I don't own any of his records.

        Which ones do I need?

        Thanks
        I didn;t read anyone posting about any of his "latter" lp's. Why??? Do people not know them or is it some type of latter-lp-snobbery like goes on with prog lp;s? Either way, Thirteen Down is fantastc!! Well developed songs and beautiful - all of them but the best lp he ever recorded is surely A Rare Conundrum. Superb throughout.
        The track "Doctor Doctor" is nothing if not sublime. It always gives me goosebumps esp. when I follow the lyrics. Bert meets a beautiful lady who "takes him in" to her space. But then after a sexual encounter he finds that 'twas but a dream and now in the psychiatrists consulting room he tells the doctor he has no money to pay him because she took that from him.
        What a great melancholic track and storyteller and who fuckin' writes lyrics like that anymore?
        "She is the stream and I am the fish to guide her. She is the golden corn in the sun and I am the field-mouse and in her I run".

          Err, Sie-Fly was singing Thirteen Down's praises earlier along with other recent-ish albums like Black Swan. I think the general concensus was "just get them all". But maybe not in a one-r...

            I didn;t see and can;t see his mention of Thirteen Down, from 1980, so decided to mention it myself, specifically.

              Post #13 for Thirteen Down. I'm not that up on the post mid 70s stuff, although I too picked up Black Swan. It certainly is a deep seam to mine, and I think it's worth taking time to absorb.
              One of the best times I saw him live, was at an early 80s Pentangle (minus Terry Cox) reunion at Cambridge Folk Festival in a small packed tent. What a great band. That's going to the grave with me.
