Martin Simpson performing Blues Run the Game was unbearable and totally unrecognisable, -          altered the melody, over embelished the accompaniment and played it way too fast. Sounded under rehearsed.
I think many of us could do a better version.

Like he didnt have a B J number to perform ?

Ralph's rendition of Angie was solid after all its only a play on a the chord structure but was far too long and became tedious.

Pentangle were brill though much of the material didnt really appeal to me as a 'folk' fan.

It would be better to describe the evening as a reflection of contemporary 'Folk' in Soho, London in the 60s

Now its time to put emback into the box , close the lid, replace on the shelf for academic studies in later years.

Shame about Neil Young's singing.

Saw Jackson C F and Paul Simon at Les C, mainly on the evenings when there was hardly an audience . usually mid week.

see ya at Loughton folk Club Thurs 15th May
