I met Trevor Crozier numerable times back in the 70s when I was doing the rounds of folk festivals and clubs, especially the Croydon Folk Club. He gave me permission to "borrow" one of his songs "Dead Dog Scrumpy" and used it frequently for a couple of years. Trevor's version is on youtube and I've uploaded it below.
Trevor died in 1995 in Africa where he was involved with coffee production but this changes somewhat depending on what account you read. One of the most amiable and friendly musicians of his era.

1) Ed Lyman is an insurgent subversive wanted in 7 dimensions for acts on a tangent. 2) Nola's verified by Norris McWhirter to be 1/5 shorter than her height when fully extended and lacquer-sprayed at the fairgrounds. 3) The Snyder Family? See what gray-scale and pink can do for your music career! or is that better as a question? 4) Strange Trails album cover. Remarkably, I think that's a great cover, and wouldn't change it. 5) Tommy James album cover. The photographer made no effort artistically (composition) or to get proper exposure. Don't hope to see that cover in a photographers portfolio any time this week. 6) Nadine, Ted Crozier and Mick Jagger. Sometimes, you just have to go with what you're given and hope you picked the right focal point, and just run with it. 7) The Adlers. Hohner keeps introducing new harmonica models, as does Suzuki, Oskar, Bushman, and a few indies. Here's to lousy harmonica players, aged 5, in long car trips, having a great time living life! LOL.
Don't mean a thing if it ain't got that slice straightened out before the weekend cut. Golf instruction on record? "OK, now imagine how I'm standing for this song, oops, I mean, this swing. No really, imagine we're at a golf course and this mic stand is a 5 iron and your couch is a sand trap. Well, rotate your tone arm, oops, I mean 5 iron and your arms, around your kitchen chair, which is the golf tee box. Now smack that vanilla donut, oops, I mean Titleist, 250 yards with your super new swing and reward yourself with three beers, which we'll call "a birdie at Augusta". This record is sponsored by the Miller brewing company, oops, I mean Miller Recording company."

crosseyedmary75: 2,000 years later, we have His words. We know what He said. Ian sang, And the all-time winner Has got him by the balls He picks up Gideons Bible Open at page one, I thank God he stole the handle and the train it won't stop going Headlong to his death. Why?
