About things today and fallen leaves

Well, September has leapt upon us, school has started and yesterday morning I got my hooped shirt out of the wardrobe in preparation for the visit of pantomime villains Bath Rugby to Kingsholm. (A great time was had by all…)

Summer’s definitely over.

But I’m going to let myself have one last wistful glance back at Summer ’09, and post the last of my Green Man recordings. I didn’t get them up in time but it seems a shame to lose them altogether, so …

Lucky Seven – Green Man Special

A Matter of Time – The Leisure Society
An unidentified track – Beach House
Bike – Robyn Hitchcock
I Can Hear the Grass Grow – Robyn Hitchcock
Another unidentified track – Richard James and Cate le Bon
River Man – Robyn Hitchcock
Skinny Love – Bon Iver
Ursula’s Crow – Jonny (Norman Blake and Euros Childs)

A RAR file of the whole mix.

The more gifted among you will have noticed that, yes, this is actually eight tracks, but the three Robyn Hitchcock songs were so good…

I’ve never been particularly interested in him before to be honest (although I was always rather fond of the Soft Boys), but probably one of the more enjoyable hours I spent over the weekend was listening to veteran producer Joe Boyd talking us through some of his more memorable encounters. After each section, Robyn Hitchcock would sing a relevant song from the period. It was all quite charming…

(apologies for the unidentified tracks, anyone help me?)

    You’ve done well. I liked hearing Bike again. And Skinny Love. Was that Boyd/Hitchcock picture taken at Green Man? I don’t recognise the shirt. Looking forward to starting my new book – very, very kind. Thank you. We were all very visible in a Shed crowd scene by the way.
