Brian Patten & Friends – Vanishing Trick

Patten-fPatten-r

LP, Tangent, 1976

Ostensibly a limited-appeal record, of the Liverpool poet reading his often wry and poignant verse over an occasional musical backing… turns out to be a veritable who’s who of the great and good of the 1970s UK folk scene. Check out those accomplices: Richard & Linda Thompson, Norma Winston, Mike Westbrooke, Neil Innes, and many more.

And it’s all on Tangent, one of our favourite collectible labels of the time. Very tasty. Now, if anyone also has Patten’s 1969 record on Caedmon, Brian Patten Reading his Poetry, lying around…
