Pisces "Pisces" 1971

















Manila said...
Here's a rare one. UK readers of this blog will probably know Richard Digance from his many TV appearances as a comedian/singer/comic poet etc., etc. I'm sure they will also know - given the depth of knowledge displayed by just about everyone here! - that he started out playing folk clubs in the late 60s, early 70s, and was once a member of the folk group (later duo) Pisces.

Well, here is the album he recorded with Pisces on the Trailer label in 1971. It's light, sometimes whimsical stuff, but there's some pretty good acoustic guitar work and tight harmonies. I have to say I prefer his later, solo work, but I know a lot of people are searching for these old, long-deleted albums, so hopefully this will make someone's day.

Personnel:
Richard Digance - Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals
Tim Greenwood - Bass, Guitar, Vocals
John O'Connor - Guitar, Bass, Vocals

Tracks:
Bright new morning; Ballad of Benjamin Bratt; After the night; Jack O'Legs; If I sing you a song; Midsummer symphony; Sam the one eyed snail; If The Truth Be Known; Poker Joe.

As always, many thanks to Lizardson for hunting out all the hard to find, brilliant music on this blog.
