The Road Less Travelled E.P. by Tom Cole – review by Neil Partrick

Old Malta Folk Club 1976

Profiles of the unsung heroes of the UK folk scene from the first revival of the late 1950s through to the 1970s.

Tom Cole’s The Road Less Travelled is a showcase of some his newest self-penned material plus reworkings of a couple of songs that have been part of his gigs for several years. Tom is increasingly and deservedly well-known on the live acoustic music scene of Hastings and surrounding towns, and this new EP serves as an excellent showcase of what he can do.

Nigel Sinden (chair to Hastings Friendship Group)… I have known Tom Cole for many years and each track from him just gets better and better.

Roger Carey…. We did a Thursday night residency from late 1977 which I think finished at the end of 78. Whereupon Adrian set us up at The Kings Head Old Town in 1979 with a year long Tuesday gig with many guests. This proved a great success and often packed out.

Alan Esdaile… Anyone else remember playing in the Eddy Ferret Hot Jazz?
