STOP PRESS: AND THE WINNER IS:::::::MARTIN SELLERS:::::::::THANKS ALL THOSE WHO ENTERED, INCLUDING THE MAN WHO SUGGESTED DAVE SWARBRICK WROTE IT::::::I WILL BE PUTTING THE FAIRPORT CONVENTION CROPREDY OFFICE IN TOUCH WITH MARTIN
Please do not be distracted from the closing instalment of the Simon Nicol interview, but do take note of my final reminder of the Who Killed Off Swarb? competition. Midnight tonight, which I am happy to regard as midnight UK time, is the deadline for entries to be received.
Details appear in previous postings.
But while on the subject of competitions, I declare Smiley - as he prefers to sign himself - the winner of the first, which appeared very early in the life of this site. That earlyness also accounted for the fact that his was the only true response, so winning was not on this occasion a great accomplishment.
His prizes: three CDs.
The Chieftains The Wide World Over
Pentangle Sweet Child (that's Pentangle's Jacqui McShee in the picture)
Jackson C Frank Blues Run the Game (in a slightly battered CD box, I am afraid)
Happy listening, Smiley.
