Thread Name: Nic Jones CD
Subject: Nic Jones CD
Here's a post by a bloke called Alistair Banfield that I just found the news-group uk.music.folk, and I thought it might interest people here - especially with Christmas coming up and all.

I know most people on this newsgroup will have heard of Nic Jones or be intimately familiar with his work.

What you may not know is that since his terrible car crash in the 1980's a CD of live material and BBC sessions is available from Nic directly.

The great thing about this is that, since none of his earlier Trailer recordings are available it is the only way of getting hold of his music (apart from the fantastic Penguin Eggs, which is still available on Topic CD)

The details of how to contact Nic and purchase this very reasonably priced CD are below.

I might add that I have no personal financial interest. I just received it this morning and was "wowed" by its contents.
