Tudor Lodge

"Let's Talk" 1997

Twenty six years after their memorable classic Vertigo LP of the 70's, comes this second album of songs from the new Tudor Lodge. The delicate blend of the two guitars, a trademark of the first album, is still there in many of the arrangements, but the music has moved on.
Eight of these tracks were recorded in the mid 80's when Tudor Lodge was John, Lynne and Lyndon (tracks 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12 and 15). The sessions were produced by Paul Windsor, a friend and local musician, who also played bass on some of the tracks. They were supported by Chris Collingtree and Roger Keene adding drums and percussion to selected tracks.

The remaining songs were recorded by Lynne and John in the autumn of 1996. On these sessions they played all the instruments.


"Dream" 1999

Tudor Lodge, originally formed in 1968, was/is a much loved and highly appreciated folk-rock group that has managed to keep its vitality and freshness throughout the passing years. Folk-rock was the creative mix of England's vast folk musical tradition and rock's brilliant verve. Tudor Lodge's homonymous first album has become one of Vertigo label's most sought after albums. It was a magnificent mixture of Celtic magic and 60's atmospheric, delicate fluidity and elegant lyrics. This release was followed by a mid-eighties one, "Lets Talk", and "It All Comes Back", a worthy collection that spans the 1970 – 1997 interval and features some previously unissued recordings. "Dream" is their latest melodic offering. Recently released, it is brilliant folk-rock album full of excitement, beauty and haunting melodies. Unlike the recent re-union rush of old groups that have managed to spend their money and are trying to capitalise on their glorious past, Tudor Lodge are still true to themselves and their calling. Their album is not a regurgitation of the past but a creative evolution wrapped in melodious sweetness and flowing harmonies. Amazingly delicious. -Casa Gazette, Summer 2000

Hi there, I would be most appreciative for a re-upload of anything by Tudor Lodge. This band had, until recently, escaped my notice and I would love to hear them. Another opportunity would be really great. Best wishes, Mike.
