Gary & Vera Aspey

"A Taste Of Hotpot... With Added Flavoring" 1976

A charming live album, recorded mid-decade at a variety of English folk clubs, with enthusiastic singalongs and amused guffawing by the affable audience members. A nice mix of "serious" traditional folk and goofier humorous asides, with Gary Aspey adopting an onstage persona rather similar to that of humorist Les Barker. Also includes a version of Leon Rosselson's "Don't Get Married, Girls," which may have actually been recorded before the "original," and many other fascinating tunes, including several oldies from Cumbria. I'm pretty sure this album remains out of print, but it's worth picking up if you can find a copy.

Another great one, thanks Lizardson.

Hey, guess what...you know Bill Fay, whose albums you posted in the past? He got onstage a couple months ago for the first time since the 70's - with Wilco. Photo is on this page!

I am a huge fan of Bill Fay thanks to you, and I am thrilled he was coaxed onstage!

I was in the audience for the Stamford gig, from which some of these recordings were taken. Great memories, many thanks.

The album cover fotos won't load off ImageShack -
can someone repost them to another server?

'anonymous' is correct - at least for the "back cover" image - - -
ImageShack says "can't connect to server" for that cover photo.
Can someone who has this please repost the pic to another server?
