podcast 9

Paul, really, really enjoyed the Mark Thompson articles.  A rare insight into some behind-the-scenes activities in the Roy Harper camp.  On another subject - I've always wondered, and never heard, why many of Roy's buddies, Page, Plant, Gilmour, Kate Bush, never made an onstage appearance at Roy's 60th birthday concert.  Any info on that?  Also, a suggestion of music inclusion on a future podcast, if you can find it - Water Sports, the B-side of the Short and Sweet single from Unknown Soldier.  It's one of the few Roy songs that I've not heard.  Keep up the good work, Randy  USA

Water Sports

I don't actually have Water Sports and I've never heard it. If anyone can help me out with a copy please get in touch via the contact link at the top of the page, I'd love to include it in the podcast...

Re the 60th concert, I don't have any inside info but I always had the impression that it was probably better that way to avoid the "special guests" mentality overshadowing Roy's music. Just a guess though. Jimmy Page was at Roy's private birthday party the next day (I was there too) so he was certainly around.

Thanks for the comments, Randy.

Water Sports

It looks like I have a winner, I'll post here again if that falls through and I need more help - thanks!



Found the eccentricblogg entries facinating and sad at the same time...and looking thru my singles have PUBS 1001 "On-one ever gets out alive" b/w "Caualty", [live Glastonbury1982], also HAR 5207 Short and Sweet single, with Water Sports and Unknown Soldier on the B-side.

Re the Forum entries, I've both Gutbucket albums, 2nd hand from years ago, Roy just on Son of..., "Sergeant Sunshine" .

Excellent Podcast as ever, like others really liked "If", first time I've heard this.

Cheers, Colin.
