Subject: RE: Anonyma rides again (briefly)-Lister & McLaughlin
I'm going to necropost the thread because of the memories... In the 80's you played a folk club in Reading and this scruffy skinny bloke ran into you at the bar after and said something along the lines of "some of those songs really stuck in my head, I think I've got to learn them..." You laughed and said "Buy the album and go for it."

As it happened I already had it, having bought it that evening. To this day I still sing my own (somewhat mutated by time and the "folk process") arrangements of Moth, Seagull, Stone Circles and The Quiet People. (I've discovered that The Quiet People sung a capella works really well with a segue into CSNY's Teach Your Children with a simplified/minimalist guitar part)
