Nice Cody.

One of John Peel's favourites, was that Roy Harper song. Having once played cricket, it's one of my favourites too!

 

Talking of the Allman Brothers Band, how about some classy dobro playing...

At last, a missing album is restored to my collection (remastered too). Currently playing chez Cody...

Barry Melton's guitar work is superb! He's still going too, and still playing a Gibson SG Custom.

I have a vague memory of John Peel telling a story that someone suggested the Roy Harper song would be a good track to play as a tribute if John Peel died - Peely didn't like this as he was a big football fan and had little interest in cricket.

I have a Gibson SG but it's not a fancy one - it's called a Firebrand and was designed to be as inexpensive as possible - it was built in Nashville in 1980 and is still working fine, never been repaired or upgraded.

It's possible that you mis-remember, methinks (or Peel was playing mind games). I believe Andy Kershaw ended his Peel tribute programme on BBC Radio 3 with it. Harper uses cricket as a metaphor for death in that song, which only adds to its depth.

Very possible as it would have been some time around the late 80's - although I am now thinking that it was John Walters (Peel's producer?) that he said made the suggestion - I can still almost hear Peel's voice saying he wasn't keen on cricket (he was a big Liverpool FC fan).

Aye, no doubt of that. He was a big fan of schoolgirls too, which he wouldn't get away with these days.

There was a lot of that back then unfortunately. Still, all things pass, in time.

That takes me back, Geraldine! The BBC wouldn't play it because of his manager's links to Radio Caroline. The pirate radio stations were a vital part of the '60s music scene, but the "establishment" hated them, and BBC Radio1 was created to try and compete.

That was a really "dirty song" there Cody! In fact, I find it most questionable! 😀

As it's the day of giving gifts, I give you The Gift, a cheerful little ditty by the Velvet Underground.

Having once lived in Córdoba, I'm a fan of flamenco. Leyenda - a piano piece by Albéniz - is pure flamenco.

The Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger took the melody from Leyenda and created this:

Nigel Kennedy had an intriguing take on the music of The Doors:

I remember an interview where Jaz Coleman said he had been writing some classical music - I guess this led to his collaboration with Kennedy. I have seen him live, as the singer with Killing Joke.
