The Bunch "Rock On" 1972

Organized by Trevor Lucas and Sandy Denny following the breakup of Fotheringay, The Bunch features an all-star cast from the British folk-rock scene paying homage to their roots before they began their musical trek down the traditional path of Francis James Childs and Cecil Sharp. Recorded in January of 1972, The Bunch was just that, a one-off by a bunch of friends getting together to play the music of some of their early idols, including Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams and Chuck Berry. Lucas, Denny, Richard Thompson, Linda (Thompson) Peters, Ashley Hutchings and various other members of the extended Fairport Convention family, treat the music with a certain reverence while at the same time injecting it with a playfulness and ragged British charm. Sandy Denny, who is touted in the liner notes as "Britain's first lady of song," delivers two of her finest performances on record, a lovely duet with Peters on the Everly Brothers' "When Will I Be Loved" (which predated Linda Ronstadt's cover by two years), as well as her tender reading of the Buddy Holly obscurity "Learning the Game." Other highlights include Richard Thompson's spirited working of Dion's "My Girl the Month of May," Ashley Hutchings' deadpan "Nadine" and Linda Peters' "Loco-motion." The original U.K. release included a flexi-single of ex-Fotheringay drummer Gerry Conway performing "Let There Be Drums."

Thanks for all the shares Keef. Would have loved to have the Plainsong. When I went to Floodlight it was already deleted. Maybe someone who got it would be willing to share again with a reup.

Always loved the Bunch LP but hadn't been able to find a copy since my old tape died. Thanks for posting. It's a fine lp with some great moments ... and some not so great ones too. Thanks.

You are thinking perhaps of "Sandy" Duncan?

Can somebody tell me the password for this one? It's probably right under my nose somewhere, but I can't find it.
Thanks, and thanks for the share. I'm a big fan of Ian, and didn't realize this was one of his many groups.
