Sorry mate ,really don't know at the moment. I know there is some more Cipollina going up there soon and that the Barry upload was with permission of Barry but that's about it.

Me too....somewhere; and Deke provided a typically side-splitting account of the whole event in the newsletter.
Some great guitar naturally, but also a fascinating segment when Barry gets a less than enthusiastic response to his sales pitch for various ex-Festival plectrums.

Funny that, as it was a plectrum (Deke's) that brought the missus and me together!

I'm not going to ask how.  It might be messy!

Got my Jones/Leonard/Melton CD at one of the Patti gigs.  Handed out free to the early arrivals if I remember correctly.  Didn't know that Steve was the benefactor so there's another reason to be more than grateful to him.  Cheers Steve, hope that things are going well for you.

I just recently unearthed this from amongst my son's things that were still in the house.  I thought maybe he had a second copy but it was the only one.   Well out of character for me to lose track of any recorded medium.

Heron (one 'r' not two), first name Allan (two 'l's not one) which shows what an awkward twonk he is (well parents I suppose, but I don't want to appear rude) should not be woken from the deep slumber he is currently in and has been in for some days. You see he is blissfully dreaming his favourite football team has reached the dizzy heights of 6th in the league.
