My name is Jack Long, and in 1974/5 I arranged and produced an album of
George Gilbert's music at Vortex Studios, Hollingbourne. The Album, I
believe, was entitled "Flows Medway Softly", and consisted entirely of some
brilliant Medway-inspired songs, all written by George, of course. I used my
regular musicians and singers at the time - including Trevor Brice from
"Vanity Fare", who sang most of the lead vocals.

Unfortunately, I have a problem: my last remaining copy of this classic
album and the original 15ips master tapes, have been stolen.

How can I get an appeal out to the Kentish folk-lovers who may still have a
copy of this album, and who might be kind enough to make a copy of it for
me, or let me borrow it long enough to make my own digital version?

I really would be most grateful for your help on this one.


Jack Long.

Dear Everyone,
I'll try to get to the John Harvey Tavern this evening, but the roads and pavements are still bad. If in doubt, don't travel. The pavement in St. John's Terrace is atrocious.
The Elephant has got a diary clash on 24th. February, so we're moving the Lewes Favourites tunes practice session on Tuesday 24th. February to the Crown, 191 High Street, Lewes BN7 2NA for this month only. We'll be using the Crown for some of our multiple workshops later in the year. Its function room, which has fine wooden-panelled walls, is on the ground floor. The nearest car park is the large one in West Street. Go out of the back of the car park, over the road and through the Market Tower; the pub is right next to the Market Tower. It sells Harveys, of course.
Attention fiddlers: Beau Webber of Kent Folk has set up an excellent web page with details of Tommy Peoples's workshops and performances in Lewes and Littlebourne in September this year:
