Pete Prescott & Rick Pentecost – The Christmas Song 1989

Neil Cartwright…..This was recorded live at Rick Pentecost’s house in Priory Road (?), using a TASCAM 4-track. It was part of a Christmas music project we ran when I worked at Hastings College. I’ve got quite a few more tracks, involving people like Jez Gillet, John Laidlaw, John Ballard, Anna Madge, Jilly Linn and Dave Roberts. There are a number of original songs, including an original from Roger and Liane. Really, I’d like to post them, say, one a day or so, like a musical Advent Calendar, but I think I’d need people’s permission first …..…. so, anybody out there saying ‘yes, you can’ …. it would be really nice.

Alan Esdaile….Great idea Neil.

Pete Prescott….i remember recording the tracks.a lot of fun ! first time i met rick.still the sweetest guy.we did a song of mine (christmas morning i think ) john ballard sang the little boy that santa claus forgot.

Pete Prescott…..’Christmas Morning’ I wrote that for the project,not heard it in years.

If anyone’s interested in these songs, please email me and I will pass on to Neil.
