    I was only joking! I realised you'd only seen the 12 string snippet as it had superceded the previous posts / snippets ; so don't worry you haven't won my company for a weekend! Promise!

    Well I thought I'd do this post some justice! It's my thousandth! Now shut up Andi, go and take a long hot bath for a couple of years and keep away from computers!

    Wow andi!! What a great collection of Harper covers ... from Southend to Townsend!!:biggrin:
    I thoroughly enjoyed this lot. The Preview Club at Southend was a delight ... lovely to see how the audience got quieter and more attentive and appreciative as the set progressed. 'Broken wing' it seems has the power to bring a tear to my eye even though it's delivered by another other than Roy himself. Well done lads!! I lived in Southend for a few years met and married my wife after we met at art college ... had some great musical moments at the Top Alex pub ... don't remember ever seeing a folk club in those days.
    So Britain's definitely got talent and many are Harper fans it seems ... does your heart good don't it?
    Great to see some close up fretwork on some of those 'early' numbers ... very accomplished playing.
    How about that Pete Townshend version of North Country? Just checked to see if it was on the tracklist of the 'Psychoderelict' Live In New York DVD but no ... it must be a new one. I recognise Jon Carin on keys from Floyd live gigs ... have to check that one out.
    Cheers andi ... you can come out of the bath now!!
    Keep 'em coming ... you talented people :biggrin:

    1001 & counting...

    Actually if you check out the Adunda Youtube and Myspace site there's loads of my favs on there...not just Roy...


    If you post comments with star ratings on all the different artist RH/NH cover sites with www.stormcock.net addy then they may come over here and become active members? If they're not already here psuedonymically?


    andi born in Bath strangely enough! But not Southend..


    ....read the comments underneath! Don't sound like the same venue?? That's not you they are describing is it? "Glad they got rid of the last DJ. The one that looked like a weasel and wouldn't play requests" Or perhaps you were upstairs on Thursdays? Or up somewhere!

    BTW here's another sometime lurker from USA who loves Roy :


    or Facebook :


    or direct to his blogspot [probably via Facebook]:


    and, on Splinters here....when you scroll down :

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    I'd be suprised if they are not already on this site !! I didn't know about their videos ... but I have spoken to these guys before !! Kev was a regular to Roy's gigs in DeBarras ... though I haven't seen him in a while ... last time we bumped into each other, was at the end of Neil Young's set at the Hop Farm Festival the other year ... though we both were in a worse state of mind (!) ... I just know him as a chap from DeBarras ... I didn't know he was a guitar man/singer ... so for once I'm actually glad of a post from Andy !!

    I really like this guy's attempt at Blackpool it's a bit rough in places but I think he does a good job getting the spirit of the thing


    Another version of the same piece, possibly more accurate rendition albeit I don't think he includes the harmonics bit. From his comments in the more info bit it would seem he recorded a better version but YooYaToob have lost it!

    Are they both the same guy? I can hear harmonics in two places on the second version. Nice to see close up on the fretwork ... must be hellish difficult to play that one!!

    Which one are you refering to Rainbow?

    It's nice to hear that Big Chris thinks that 0.001% of my posts interests him! Made my day! It'll make his day when I tell him I can't make Clon 2009 this year probs?! Enjoy, enjoy! Shame that I have to put busyness first and wanted to see Gavin and others agin. We'll expect a full review of all musical and liquid entertainment from BC especially if RH makes an improptu neighbourly visitation. Phps he can spread the word of Stormcock.net Forum members stage over there? Think PS said he was going....

    All covers welcome!

    Just treat it as an open mic night and all levels of ability welcome!

    Just have a go....

    Is it possible to listen to earlier Splinters somewhere coz I remember covers on there, even PD himself laughing on the stage if I remember rightly?

    Cheers ... Rainbow:m2:

    Well it's been some considerable time since my last post ... one or two health issues didn't help ...apologies, but I have been reading posts on the forum daily ... just haven't got round to chipping in:blush:

    I've tightened up the earlier recorded attempts at 'Riverside' and 'Miles Remains' and thought I'd post them here ... links below:



    I've had a go at 'One Of Those days In England' working from Adam Leonard's transcription (cheers Adam) ... just the Ovation electro-acoustic plus a smidge of slide and some very iffy mournful vocal attempts (sorry):blushing:


    Lastly, this one's been kicking around for some months now but I quite like it ... an instrumental version of 'When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease' ... which I hope is sympathetic to one of my favourite Roy tunes:


    All are submitted in the spirit of fun which, for me, is the prime motivation these days for playing music, but also with the utmost respect and admiration for the originals which are very firm personal favourites.

    All the very best for 2010 ... hope it is a kind year to us all.

    Best regards ... Rainbow:)
