Re: Chepstow Drill Hall Concert - 26 April

Ric Sanders was a one-time member of Fairport Convention but he's played with other musicians over the years and similar to Gordon, he has had a successful solo career too. I don't recall the beard but I might be mistaken! I think you're referring to Ric's piece called "PDC (Pretty Damn Cosmic)...

Re: Chepstow Drill Hall Concert - 26 April

Suffice to say that visiting some young friends on the way home - they both remembered the concert of yours in Cheltenham - must have been back in late 80's/90's ?? As non guitarists and not particularly musical - THAT is an accolade indeed.. !!! I wonder how "young" your good friends are...

Re: Gordon's concerts 2018

A very belated Happy New Year to Gordon and all here!

It's great to see many more concerts getting booked for 2018. We have our tickets ordered already for The Fleece at Bretforton.

Re: Litchfield Guildhall concert nearly here.

It was another outstanding performance given in very humid conditions (the hall had very little natural ventilation due to the tiny window openings and it was a very hot sultry evening) which was noted by Gordon when he took to the stage. We chatted briefly in the intermission and I remarked that it...

Re: Culling old vinyls can be an emotional experience

To join this discussion late in the day I'd only like to repeat what I've said in the original thread that the LP of "Last Of England" sounds much better than the CD due to the superior mastering. That, in my opinion, is the major problem with 99% of pop recordings these days - since Oasis...

Re: LAST OF ENGLAND LP and Launch gig

Having played the LP now I am happy to report it sounds just as fine as it looks. The sound has a level of depth, natural resonance and timbre that the CD just can't quite attain. I'm not sure if Paul Ward actually mastered this (he is credited with mastering the album in general) or who cut the lac...

Re: LAST OF ENGLAND LP and Launch gig

Hi Sue, Many thanks! Yes, I've spoken to Pete now and as of today I am in possession of the new LP complete with signed poster! It is a thing of real beauty and highly recommended to all our vinyl loving friends. Oh happy days..... When I get home later I will be spinning the album again. Best wishe...

Re: LAST OF ENGLAND LP and Launch gig

Hi Sue, Do you happen to know the official release date of this LP as I have already ordered it from Psychotron Records (it's not listed as a "pre-order") but I've yet to receive it and yet I note it appears to be already "available" from Amazon and some "marketplace" t...

Re: The Last of England - CD

Has anyone picked up the new vinyl LP version? I'm curious to know which two tracks have been omitted for the purpose of trimming the album to optimise the vinyl pressing sound quality. I have already ordered it from the shop / record label and can't wait for it to arrive. I have no idea if I'll get...

Re: The Last of England - CD

Really love the opening track. I keep on repeating and repeating and repeating it again. Yes, the opening track really sets the album up. Just when you think you've heard it all, it changes to something else and just appears to keep moving and getting better and better as it evolves. I need to list...

Re: Bishops Cleeve - October

Hi everyone, Sorry for the late response here but Gordon's gig actually kick-started a holiday and I've only just got back! As Simon and Dave have already indicated it was another great concert with a nice surprise by way of the support act! It was great to hear Gordon hint at the prospect of anothe...

Re: Bishops Cleeve - October

I will be, Andrew.

I originally got the tickets when it was scheduled for March this year but we all know it will be well worth the wait and Gordon will do us all proud, I'm sure.

Re: Gordon's albums: what do you listen to most often?

As someone who grew up listening to Gordon Giltrap before I even heard The Beatles' music, the three albums Gordon recorded for Electric will always have a very special place for me. It has already been said that Visionary , Perilous Journey and Fear Of The Dark are all singularly great classic albu...
