THE LANDLORD'S DEAD
HE CAN NEVER BE FOUND
Ken Malone

Ah, the marvellous Richard Thompson. He's rather good live as well if you get chance to see him. I've seen him a couple of times at the Cropredy festival.

Time to ring some changes 2

Also it appears the reports of the landlord's death are greatly exaggerated, he's merely hard of hearing.

but the roof is sound ha ha!

I think that's a known unknown :cry:

it's a favourite of whispering Bob Harris on radio 2 from a year or so ago.

the rest of the first verse is "The time of the flood is almost here, The end of the world is drawing near"

Another set of lines are:

"There is no greater power, No man made god could ever be"

I'll give you the chorus as well tomorrow if you've not got it.

AM

and the chorus is:

Stupid, on a lonely afternoon
I almost gave up on my life too soon
Reckless, at the lonely close of day
I almost listened to what the prophets
the prophets had to say

have you got the album Ed?
Ken Malone
 

Postby Ed Swindell » Mon Nov 27, 2006 19:59

I certainly have - and i should be getting the new album "Koala Motel" at Christmas.

Saw her live at The Greys in Brighton a couple of years ago when Roll was being released, got a signed copy of the live cd ballad of an outlaw woman. Was a good gig, place only holds about 70, you can't get more than 20 feet from the stage! Quite friendly to talk to as well - she was rather upset about howard's re-election at the time!

Those are the gigs to go to. Amazes me that people herd into cowsheds like the NEC to see a glimpse of a band and experience nothing.

I saw early Fleetwood Mac playing on a little bandstand in Small Heath park in Birmingham - again I was no more than 6' away from the players.

Maybe best ever was seeing one of my guitar heroes Albert Lee - in a tiny little room - I was within touching distance - and I STILL coiuldn't work out how he played what he did!! Again - a really nice guy to talk to - very unassuming and modest despite being a seminal player to most guitarists.

Ah, one of my favourites - I've got a great big thick book of his sheet music, all the albums, and an autobiography. A life tragically cut short.
