Further light on the John Martyn connection.

Ian's (JM's real name) mum lived just up the road from the Surbiton Assembly Rooms. Ian also had a bedsit round the corner somewhere (can't remember the road), and occasionally used to do a floor spot at the Surbiton club. NOt really his type of club though.

This was from about 1965. Later in 1969, I met my soon to become wife Denise, who also lived in Surbiton, and she was big friends with Ian and his mum. We used to visit mum regularly, but by then Ian's career had taken off and he had moved away from Surbiton. I met him a couple of times but was never part of his circle.

So, yes he was around at that time.

Saw JCF once at the Folk Barge in Kingston - don't think he ever appeared at Surbiton. Jack was with Sandy at the time.
