I used to run two folk clubs back in the early Sixties; The Crown in Reading and Bridge House at Bracknell. Gerry and Royd used to be among my regulars. One day they brought Clff down to The Crown. As a result I gave him a solo gig a few weeks later. We met up again at a gig he did in Newbury sometime in the Seventies. He told me - to my eternal pride - that the Crown was his first ever solo spot and that (ever a modest, retiring gentleman) he was panic-stricken.
