Roger Keith Barrett b. 6 January 1946 Cambridg UK / d. 7 July 2006 (60) Cambridge

It was nearly impossible for the original producers to make Syd Barrett’s two solo albums. It took David Gilmour and Rick Wright to pull this thing together with drummer Jerry Shirley. They would just let Syd sing and play his acoustic guitar and then try to add backup later and it sort of worked. The timing was all over the place, as were Syd’s chords and changes but it somehow worked, like on this song.

This, her only album while she was young and produced by the amazing Joe Boyd, is a gem. She’s lovely, she’s a flower, she’s a wisp of fresh air and more and it all comes through on her unusual songs. 35 years later in 2005, she decided to record another album! Her third came out in 2014.

Dublin Ir
Produced by Cara Music, Ireland, 1983
Originally from the LP Mary Black, 1983

Mary Black b. 23 May 1955 Charlemont St., Dublin, Ireland

Mary Black is one of those blessed with a beautiful voice, and Celtic folksongs are her specialty. She began singing folksongs at an early age and by the mid-1970s was performing in bands. She released her first solo album in 1983, the same year she joined De Dannan, one of the most prestigious traditional bands in Ireland. I thought that this being St. Patrick’s week…. A little bit a de Irish for yas.

Sales of Wilf’s recordings (as Montana Slim) in the US was one of thet major reasons why RCA Victor survived the Great Depression. Except for the Decca Years in the 1950s, Wilf recorded exclusively for RCA over 7 decades.

Ronald D. Scott b. Amherst, Nova Scotia June 1, 1926

Ron Scott played his first shows with Harold King, The Cobequid Mountain Boy from Springhill. In 1947 he got to tour with Hank Snow, playing both fiddle and mandolin. He then moved to Kingston, Ontario where he attended Queen's University and studied languages. While in Kingston he formed a group called "The Riders of The Southern Trails". During this time they went on the road with Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper. After university Ron moved to Montreal.

Ron Scott’s most productive years in music were in Montreal. In 1955 he played with a band called the "Cinch Brothers" featuring Jean Carignan and and himself, backing up Bobby Hill. This was the first Canadian bluegrass band to have a regular radio show, which was called ‘The Hometown Jamboree’ heard over CFCF in Montreal. In May of 1957, Ron is claimed to have recorded the first bluegrass record in Canada on the Spartan label featuring "When the Bees are in the Hive" and "The White Rose". It’s really hard to say who had the first but Ron was certainly one of ‘em.

Gordon Meredith Lightfoot Jr b Orillia ON, Nov 17, 1938

Lightfoot also had another song about dreams: “Patriot’s Dream” released on his Don Quixote album in 1972. That is by far my favourite Lightfoot album. Patriot’s Dream was written in two distinct parts, something Lightfoot experimented with earlier on The Canadian Railroad Trilogy. It’s a powerful song that is unfortunately timeless as things never seem to change: they just wave back and forth in time.

A Liverpool band who were at the forefront of the Mercy beat along with contemporaries The Beatles, Searchers, Swinging Blue Jeans, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J Kramer etc. After doing a stint in Hamburg, the band returned to the UK in 1964 and were signed to a management contract with Brian Epstein. They were supposed to appear in the 1965 Gerry & The Pacemakers film “Ferry Cross the Mersey” as the losers in a battle of the bands contest, but the footage was cut from the film's final release. They kept at it although success seemed to elude them. After opening for Jimi Hendrix and The Who on European tours.

In the latter ‘60s, they changed from R&B to a psychedelic sound but still found little to jump for joy for. They broke up in 1968, shortly before the release of their only album. Drummer Tony O’Reilly then went to play with Yes for a short time, replacing Bill Bruford.
