Please let me know if you find still-in-print records on this blog.
(I'll remove download links from this blog)
And if so, please let me know the links for buying CDs.

It’s come to my attention that you have again made the Anonyma album available for download from your blog spot.

I hope you realise this is illegal, that it does no good at all to the artists and that it’s theft?

If you are a fan, surely you should be trying to help the artists you like, instead of ripping off their work and making it available to complete strangers? Without the money from recordings the artists and most folk labels simply can’t afford to record new material – is this what you want? Are you under the impression the folk world is full of rich performers and prosperous record labels? If so, take a reality check.

I also hear you have made the Nic Jones album available – this is so far from being helpful it’s ridiculous. The Nic Jones albums were put out there to raise money for Nic himself, who has been unable to make a living from his music following a serious car crash in the 80s.

If I, as a copyright holder, decide to make some of my music available for free download, that’s my choice. If you do it it’s simply abuse of copyright material and it’s theft. If you like the material on “Burnt Feathers”, by all means put a link to my site or Mary McLaughlin’s site and show your appreciation that way.

I will contact the legal authorities here. I have also informed other musicians whose property you have been stealing.


Additional comment from Anne Lister:

Thank you for responding so quickly to my email.

Kevin Scott may well have had album sales as a result of your action – I already have my albums available via several sites for people to hear and to purchase by download or physical copies if they choose. The issue with Burnt Feathers is a different one – the copyright belongs to the label, Fellside, and not to me or to Mary McLaughlin. We are unable legally to offer downloads or to duplicate this album, so it is all the more unlikely that they would be happy for you to be offering it on your site.

As to saying that people want to hear the music before purchasing it – there are many ways this can happen without offering free downloads without the knowledge or permission of the owners of the material.

I appreciate you are doing this because you want to increase fans for the music, but this isn’t the way to do it. ALL albums are copyright material – either copyright to the label or copyright to the artists. This is because they have invested money and time and talent in the recording and need to recoup some of the money spent out in order to continue to make music. Folk music is not a major part of the entertainment industry and I don’t know of anyone who has made much money out of recordings, so you are not helping if you give something away for free. There have been recent high-profile cases where people doing what you’ve been doing have been prosecuted and face massive fines as a result.

The main point, however, is that you need to have the copyright holder’s permission before you give away their property. Mary McLaughlin, Nic Jones, The Copper Family and others are all easy to find via Google and you could email them and check whether they want you to put links to Rapidshare. If, like Kevin Scott, they’re happy about it then there’s no issue. But you do need to ask and be prepared for people to say no.

Mary McLaughlin and I have a reunion tour this summer. I will ask from the stage whether anyone is at the gig as a result of your blog – I would be surprised, frankly.

Anne Lister

Thomas F. Browne - Wednesday's Child (1971)

It's one of the unwritten laws of record collecting that some labels guaranteed quality simply by existing -- and, if a record bears that sainted logo, then it's worth any investment you care to make. Of course, it doesn't always work that way, as collectors of the legendary U.K. prog label Vertigo will ruefully inform you. But anybody taking a chance on one of the final albums to be released beneath the label's spiral logo, the one-and-only album by singer/songwriter Thomas F. Browne, might well find themselves wondering why the company wasted so much wax on half-hearted jazz-rock, and so little exploring the further reaches of the folk-rock hybrid. Browne himself was drummer with the '60s beat band Nero & the Gladiators, a heavily classics-influenced band that also featured future Spooky Tooth/Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones for a time. Indeed, Jones and Browne alone later worked together as the State of Mickey & Tommy, and Wednesday's Child continued the partnership, with additional (and supremely characteristic) help from fellow Spooky Gary Wright, and the Sandy Denny-less Fotheringay. Such heavyweight backing, of course, dictates much of the ensuing mood, a gently rolling collection of ballads that fall into much the same bag as the period Strawbs and Mike Heron. Browne's voice is not always at its best, lacking the depth of expression that his lyrics generally demand. But the power of the arrangements and some wonderfully atmospheric backing vocals from Doris Troy and Sue & Sunny readily salvage things, and songs like "Carry My Load" (with a breathtaking Jones guitar solo) and "Dark Eyed Lady"'s cheeky approximation of "Pinball Wizard"'s acoustic guitar hook are both supremely contagious, while "The Alamo" is as epic as the land it immortalizes. ~ Dave Thompson, All Music Guide

Green Man Music Festival

You may remember that we got in touch with you last year as we really like your site. I’m getting in touch again because we need your help to find the band that will open this year’s festival on the main stage!

We’ve just launched a competition called Green Poll, now in its second year, to help us find this band. You can find out more about Green Poll here: http://www.thegreenmanfestival.co.uk/greenpoll

I think you and your readers would be perfect to help us find the right band. So I wondered If you might be interested in mentioning this to your readers?

I’ve included some more info below about Green Man and Green Poll. Please drop me a line if you’d like to find out more.


Green Poll

Calling all bands and artists – the Green Man needs YOU!

Fancy being the first band to play at Green Man 2009, standing on the main stage on Friday August 21st as the sun beats down over the Black Mountains and opening the festival with one of YOUR songs in front of thousands of people?

How about sharing the bill Animal Collective, Jarvis Cocker, Wilco, Bon Iver and Grizzly Bear, getting airplay on Green Man YouTube for a year, having an opportunity of being included in the festival promotion and press such as giving interviews to Radio 1 and the BBC, or being featured in the esteemed publications and websites such as Mojo, Guardian, NME and Drowned in Sound as well as the many others that follow Green Man?

What if we threw in 6 pairs of free Green Man tickets for your family and friends to witness your big moment live on stage, just for good measure?

Sounds good, right?

Well forget X Factor and all those rubbish TV talent shows - Green Poll 2009 is here and the search is on to find the best new band or act to get the Green Man party started!

How can I enter?
It’s easy! We are asking signed or unsigned acts to register on our special Green Poll microsite and upload a YouTube or MySpace video of your band performing a song. Anyone can enter as long as they do so before June 29 – better get your skates on!

What happens next?
The music-loving Green Man public will choose their favourite bands in two nail-biting rounds of voting. The top 6 acts then go through to a live Battle of the Bands final at The Camden Monarch, in London, on July 23rd where a panel of top music industry boffins will pick one lucky winner to open Green Man 2009!

What’s the catch?
There’s no catch my friends, it’s as easy as one, two, three. To recap:

Round 1 - Voting closes at midnight on June 28 and the top 20 bands with the most votes go through to…

Round 2 - Voting closes at midnight on July 12 and the top 6 bands with the most votes go through to…

Grand Final - A live Battle Of The Bands contest in London on July 23rd to find one lucky winner to open Green Man 2009 judged by a panel of music industry boffins

How can I vote?
The winning band / artist will open the Festival on the main stage on Friday 21st August.

What if I want to cheat?
Cheats never beat so don’t you even bother! Every single vote really counts and the Green poll site will be constantly monitored for irregular or suspicious voting patterns - any underhand activities will lead to automatic disqualification. What do you think this is, the Eurovision Song Contest?

Is there a limit on how often I can vote?
Each user is limited to one vote per day.

Good luck – may the spirit of the Green Man be with you!

Mr. Pine‏

Folloing title is added at recommend section by JeremyV in May 30
he said-

Wonderful discovery. Canadian acid-folk based band - their sophomore release from 2008 with special guest vocal from Mellow Candle's Alison O'Donnell on the amazing track "Sleep of Ondine" (which sounds like a "Swaddling Songs" outtake). Terrific diversity - classical and early music influences abound; a hint of Mellow Candle and Trees influence here and there. Some lovely arrangements with strings and even a consort of recorders on "The Enclave". Even a touch of heavy metal riffing on the dark tale "Glass Petals". Male and female vocals throughout, final track is gorgeous instrumental. Just a lovely album. Read about it on Ptolemaic Terrascope website. /

I couldn't post available CD at that tiime.
But today, I received e-mail from band member Kevin Scott himself.
he said-

I play in a psych-folk band called Mr. Pine. I discovered that someone posted a link to our 2008 album on your recommendations page - and this is completely OK with us! We would be very happy if you decided to share the album on your website. We worked with Alison O'Donnell from Mellow Candle and we are very proud of that.

What a great website you have. I wish you the best of luck with it.

Salvador Cresta

Hello, my friend...

A couple of months ago you have put on your blog one of my home-made albums... My name is Salvador Cresta and i'm from Argentina...

I have uploaded another album...

I hope you like it...

I'm trying to find a label for my stuff; i have 7 albums and a lot of sound pieces and songs in the air... If you know something, please let me know... Thank's!


El Trovador fantasma y la comida del espejo (2005)

psychedelic Folk review:
This release is the best of all three Salvador Cresta releases and most accessible for non-Spanish listeners. Unfortunately in all three releases there’s a disturbing bass-buzz sound (bad earthing ?) in many of the tracks, which you hear not so much in headphones as on big size music boxes that are sensitive to bass tones.. -(I think this still can be filtered out if it is ever remastered for an official release-). This is a collection of songs composed with a serious body but also some playfulness, adding funny noises or background noises (dogs bark more than once in the background ; or some rhythmical car horns loop on the far background which seems to have brought poetical/textual and music inspiration for a song on "Vemimentos") or funny vocal harmonies and beautiful acoustic guitar improvisations, sometimes also becoming surreal. This could remind us easily of early work from the Spanish Sisa (with Musica Dispersa & Sisa solo), or is like an acoustic Cocorosie with complete Spanish roots. The playful vocals might also remind people just a bit of Devendra Banhart singing in Spanish, with more variety. People, who like the fantasy world of Finish items like Lau Nau, and imagine it mixed with a more textual and song world, can have some idea of Salvador Cresta’s musical world. Texts I think are important. There are tracks, like “Un Reloj” which are more like poetry set into music. Most vocal expressions, with all the free-from vocal fun and expressions, I guess are all honestly driven from this textual core, and perhaps a few times become still rhythmical avant-dada-like music themselves (especially on “Piedras Simceras”). A great release which I hope will be discovered soon by some label.


Thanks again Salvador,
I have no idea, but hope someone here know good label :)

Since their reformation in 2004, the Bully Wee Band have had no trouble proving that they are still a force to be reckoned with as one of Britain’s foremost exponents of acoustic folk/rock music.

Farewell To The Gold (Paul Metsers cover)

ichingiching said...
This is a great song written by Paul Metsers who was born in New Zealand and this song dates back to the 70's. I have been lucky enough to go to New Zealand a couple of times recently and this magical song is full of imagery of the old prospecting days of the 1860's when gold was found in New Zealand. I remember driving down the cardrona valley and stopping off by a small stream. I have been singing this song at every chance, so I decided to stop the car, dig out my old frying pan and start slucing around in the shot over river just to engender some authenticity and experience, needless to say I got very wet, cold and apart from a few flecks of mica found nothing, but I did touch the echoes of experience which broke many a man's soul in the search for these golden dreams.

Whirling Pope Joan

Spin (1994)

This album has a very raw, pagan feel to it, an outlandish and spellbinding swirl of music and song, firmly focused around the hurdy-gurdy of Nigel Eaton and gorgeous voice of Julie Murphy. There is a little bit of bass and some unpolished synths and programmed beats here and there, which add nicely to the whole. Most of the songs are traditional, and the majority of those are Welsh and English, and there are also a couple of covers, I'm not sure how radical they are because I haven't heard the originals to compare, but I can imagine the Bronski Beat cover is pretty different from the original. Ffoles Llantrisant is one of my favourites on the album, but really, this is an album upon which every track shines brightly, so it is hard to single out highlights. (Amazon.co.uk)
