John Kirkpatrick - De Zon folkclub
Dranouter, Belgium (March 23th, 1979)





















bonjour à tous
j'ai retrouvé plusieurs enregistrements faits dans les années 1970 dans un petit café au pied des monts de Flandre : De Zon, tenu par Alfred Den Ouden et Kristien Dehollander par ailleurs également musiciens.
Il n'y avait qu'une dizaine de tables, environ 100 spectateurs dont la moitié debout les jours d'affluence, de superbes souvenirs sont revenus en mémoire, je veux vous en faire profiter.
La qualité n'est pas excellente mais c'est un témoignage d'une musique vivante.
Je commence avec John Kirkpatrick, suivront John Doonan, Ray Ficher et pour terminer le groupe The Reel Union, il y a eu beaucoup plus de concert mais soit je n'y était pas, soit je ne les ai pas enregistrés, désolé...
à bientôt

Music From Coleman Country

The Coleman Country Traditional Society (Leader LEA 2044) 1972

















This field recording was made in 1971 in County Sligo, the home of Michael Coleman (1889-1945) who recorded prolifically in the 1920s and 30s. His music was carried on by local musicians during the lean years when Irish traditional music became unfashionable. Many of these tunes will be familiar to anyone who has attended a pub session anywhere in the British Isles (and elsewhere) but when this album was released many of the tunes were still unknown to most of the folk world.

Tracks:

Side One
1. reels: O'rourke's; The Wild Irishman
2. reel: The Laurel Tree
3. reel: The Blackthorn Stick
4. jigs: Willie Coleman's; Brendan Tone Rowe's No.2
5. reel: The Musical Priest
6. reel: Trim The Velvet
7. hornpipe: The Cuckoo Hornpipe
8. reels: Boys At The Lough; The Devils Of Dublin
9. reel: The Wise Maid

Side Two
1. jigs: Strike The Gay Harp; Lough Gowna Jig
2. reel: Lord Gordon's Reel
3. reel: The Fox Chase
4. jigs: The Killavil Jig; The Lilting Banshee; The Kid On The Mountain
5. reel: Miss McLeod's Reel
6. reels: Michael Rilly's; Martin Wynne's No. 2
7. slow air: Anachuin
8. reels: The Morning Dew; The Woman Of The House; Rakish Paddy

Australian Folk and Bush Music and Musicians


















Paul said...

Hi! I love all folk music but here I wish to focus on sharing Australian folk music; any folk music by Australian artists; and old-time Australian country and dance music. Too much of this music is rapidly becoming lost through a strong reluctance of Australian CD producers to re-release some of the classics of the past. Much of the music I will be sharing here has been ripped from LP and edited by me and I am happy to do the same for anyone holding such music. It's usually a lot of work but it's well worth it. Please email me if you wish to contribute.

High Level Ranters - A Mile To Ride (1973)

Their 1973 album for Trailer Records (another 'Lost Album' - if you don't know look it up on Mudcat).
This is their classic line up of Gilfellon, Handle, Ross and Anderson. One of my favourite Ranters recordings.

Please may I apologise now for the cover scans, they're not up to my usual standard since my big scanner died.

Request - has anyone got a good quality rip of 'Oak And Ash And Thorn' by Peter Bellamy - it's about the only Bellamy album I have missing. I may be able to post 'Merlin's Isle of Gramerye' soon, and 'Barrack Room Ballads' (I have three copies of the latter - one of which was still sealed and unplayed - but the pressing quality of all is attrocious) I'll get a good rip one day.

Coming soon: still working on - Martin Wyndham-Read - 'Ned Kelly And That Gang' - the definitive Australian bushranger album and Shetland Fiddlers (Leader LED2082) featuring 'Da Forty Fiddlers' and Aly Bain

Just repaying the favour.
This site and your site kept me busy for a fortnight filling some of the gaps in my collection.

I've been ripping and cleaning vinyl albums for about five years now, these are just a few alreadt done that I can't find currently available anywhere (easily).

If you have any requests let me know.

Hachiko Waits

The true story about a dog's loyalty to its master, even after his death.



ReelDogs (on YouTube):
From the 1987 film Hachiko monogatari (aka Hachi-ko). Wonderful movie that tells the true story of an Akita's devotion to his master. Unfortunately Hollywood is currently working on a remake scheduled for release sometime in 2008.

Song is Bittersweet, by Within Temptation.

About Hachikō on Wikimedia:
In 1924, Hachikō was brought to Tokyo by his owner, Hidesamuroh Ueno (上野英三郎), a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo. During his owner's life, Hachikō saw him off from the front door and greeted him at the end of the day at the nearby Shibuya Station. Even after Ueno's death in May 1925, Hachikō returned every day to the station to wait for him, and did so for the next 10 years.

This is probably the last batch of stuff until after Christmas (family and all that). But if anyone is interested; to follow, Alistair Anderson - Corby Crag, Dave Burland - A Dalesman's Litany, The Copper Family - A Song For Every Season (I've decided to re-rip it on my new set-up, because it's worth doing a good job on such an important lost album). Various obscure Irish albums and some more of the "lost" folk albums from the 1970s.

Let us go, lassie, go,

whar the deer and the rae,
lichtly bounding thegither,
sport the lang summer day
on the braes o´ Balquhidder

I will twin thee a bow´r
by the clear silver fountain,
and I´ll cover it o´er
wi´ the flooers o´ the mountain
I will range through the wilds,
and the deep glens sae dreary,
and return wi´ their spoils
tae the bow´r o´ my dearie

When the rude wintry win´
idly raves roun´ oor dwellin´,
and the roar o´ the linn
on the nicht breeze is swellin´;
so merrily we´ll sing,
as the strorm rattles o´er us,
till the dear shielin´ ring
wi´ the licht lilting chorus.

There will be a private family funeral held in the next few days and a public memorial in January; details of which will be available at www.lescousins.co.uk shortly. Davy will be missed by those of us who loved him. The many fans who came to see his last concerts gave him much joy and satisfaction and was something he drew great strength from.

John Kirkpatrick & Sue Harris

The Rose of Britain's Isle (1974)


LP - Topic 12TS 247

John Kirkpatrick was born in Chiswick, West London in 1947. A deep love of music was instilled from birth, and family gatherings always included a hearty sing-song. School choirs, the Church choir, playing recorder and piano ensues, until he joined the Hammersmith Morris Men, in their second week, in 1959.

Whilst with the team he took up the melodeon, then the button accordion, then the anglo concertina, and got hooked on the traditional songs that were accompanied with a post-dancing pint.

John has gone on to become one of the most prolific figures on the English folk scene, performing solo, in duos, acoustic groups and electric bands, and has established an enviable reputation as an instrumental virtuoso and session musician, as well as a leading interpreter of English folk music. He has been a member of the Albion Country Band, Magic Lantern, The Richard Thompson Band, Umps and Dumps, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, Trans-Europe Diatonique, and Band of Hope, as well as numerous ceilidh bands.

David Peel & The Lower East Side
Marijuana Christmas






















David Peel is a New York-based musician who first recorded in the late 1960s, with Harold Black, Billy Jo White and Larry Adams performing as The Lower East Side Band. Though his raw, acoustic "street rock" with lyrics about marijuana and "bad cops" appealed mostly to hippies at first, the sound and DIY ethic make him an important, if little-credited, early performer of punk rock. He has performed with artists ranging from B. B. King to the Plastic Ono Band.

Blowzabella ::: Pingha frenzy



#63 Sept. 1988 Frenzy is an avowedly basic recording, without much instrumental separation and some oddities of balance that occasionally bring out previously hidden strands in the music. Not many audience noises (what there is sounds enthusiastic) but quite a few cicadas. In Colour's live side had lots of 'ambience' to compensate for recording limitations but that route isn't followed here. Tunes new to record are included alongside Wall Of Sound favourites and it motors along in characteristic fashion, with Glass Island a more tranquil interlude - if you've seen them lately you'll get the generai idea. I found this quite enjoyable, if not exactly essential Blowzabella

I am a big fan of your blog! So many treasures, I can't thank you enough! I wanted to invite you to listen to my group Pairdown, and our new release "Holykyle".

I would really like to hear your thoughts on the record, and when we are just a *little* closer to the release date (Feb 24, 2009) I would be thrilled if you wanted to post it to your blog! The album is currently being pressed to vinyl, but we want the world to have free access to the digital version.

Hope you get a chance to listen, and I hope you like it. To give you context, I am an enormous fan of Renbourn, Jansch, Davy Graham and the like. We are also big fans of Love, R.E.M., The Smiths etc...

Marcus said...

Well hello there bloggers!

You have reached the new sometimeworld blog! At first glance the only difference might be the hyphen in the domain name (now sometime-world.blogspot, instead of sometimeworld.blogspot) however, this time i aims to keep it more simplistic, and post more often. I'm also going to be adding a little more variety of music this time around... proggers fear not, i will continue to post the same great stuff you have become accustomed too.

Some of my regular readers will probably remember me wanting to change blog services a few months ago. A few of my posts had been removed and i had just generally been too lazy to keep it running. I've always noticed i seem to get quite a few visits (almost 200 thousand on the first StW blog) and realised i should probably keep with it. So i decided not to give up on blogger after all, and now i'm here.

You can find every single album i have uploaded in the past below this post. A more regular alternative however, is the Album Archive button on the right hand side of this blog. It will link you back to that post to easily discover my collection of goodies.

In other news, i got around to creating a last.fm group dedicated to this blog and its many readers. I't'd be grand to see a few more members :] - Last.fm group

I ask anyone who has my original blog linked somewhere to please update the links!
