...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

JUDY DYBLE AT MUSOSCRIBE


Judy Dyble – Talking With Strangers
Fans of classic-, folk- and/or progressive rock might recognize the name Judy Dyble. She was a founding member of Fairport Convention, and she sang on the demo version of the embryonicKing Crimson‘s “I Talk to the Wind.” But she’s been largely out of the limelight since that release (the album’s press one-sheet claims that Dyble “promptly retired to the English countryside to raise a family.”). Talking With Strangers bears some sonic similarities to Fairport Convention; Dyble’s English folk roots inform her songwriting and arrangement. He gentle voice is less forceful than that of Annie Haslam, but the songs on the album are (unsurprisingly) reminiscent of Renaissance. It helps that Dyble’s list of heavy friends includes Robert FrippIan MacDonald, Tim Bowness (No-man) and Pat Mastelotto. While her original songs are strong, her reading of the Greg Lake/Pete Sinfield classic “C’est la Vie” is the highlight here.
