Barry Taylor… did Paul Simon play the Black Horse At Telham does anyone know?
Stuart Huggett… He may well have, he certainly appeared to have played The New Inn in Sidley during his mid 60s troubadour days. Also the De La Warr folk festival date August 30th 1965 with: Shirley Collins, Ian Russell, Rob Edwards and Ralph Hay”.
Andy Gunton… That’s got to be worth a piece in The Stinger hasn’t it Stu? 😉
Stuart Huggett… Only the 50th anniversary this year, eh?
Alan Esdaile… Maybe a bit early Andy but might be worth going through the Bexhill phone book to see if you can find a Mrs Robinson!
Stuart Huggett… Sidley Ways To Leave Your Lover.
Andy Gunton… You Can Call Me Al(an). If anyone has any memories of Paul Simon’s gigs at the De La Warr, or New Inn please let me or Stu know. We’re going to put together something for a future issue of The Stinger about his visit to our area. Any links etc gratefully received
Alan Esdaile… I remember Art Garfunkel being in Hastings in the 70’s. He came in Stylus Records and I sold him an album which I think was Its A Beautiful Day. He was down here to work in the studio with John Martyn.
Andy Gunton… That would make a nice little postscript Alan & I remember you telling me about that before
Alan Pepper…. Loves me like a (white) rock !
Alan Esdaile… you guys are still crazy after all these years.
Jim Breeds… Do you know if any collaboration between Martyn & Garfunkel saw the light of day?
Bob Bailey… Not that I can remember
Alan Esdaile… can’t confirm what they were working on or if any records were released together. However, often due to being on different labels and contract restrictions, some people were not credited.
Jim Breeds… Good point Alan, or credited to a fictional name like Hari Georgeson 🙂
