Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Yo, Pete (banjoman) I spoke with Keith Price on Sunday - he was aware of this thread but y'know, he's so self-effacing that I don't think he'd ever contribute to any forum! He's a shy lad underneath all that bluster. I don't normally post anywhere myself but this d*mn thing is so absorbing! He rattled off a quick anecdote about the TV appearance with Old Rope and was laughing so much he spilt his drink! I'm sure he'd love a chat with you and Maggie, so give me a call on 0151 924 5078 sometime and I'll pass on his 'phone number.

Anyway getting back to the ahem 'old days,' Les Brown who's a contributor to this thread did "Silver Coin" on Sunday night - the Terry Hiscox (Hunter Musket) song which I hadn't heard in a long while. I looked out a live tape I made in 1974 of Barbara Dickson. It featured in her repertory in the days when you could see her in Liverpool a lot. This was the last time she was at the Bothy (we paid her 20!) and the whole recording through all the crackle and pop is superb - wasn't she great in that heyday? Anyone know if it's possible to clean up and improve the quality of an old cassette recording - just done with hand-held mic at side of stage into old Phillips piano key portable?
