With the exception of Memphis Tennessee and Ballad of Robin Head, these recordings were all made by or 'collected' by Alan White. They date from 1969-1976. Most were recorded at clubs that we organised, a couple at clubs like Tatties where we had close links. We've left in most of the introductions, smashing glasses and distant sirens to try and retain the atmosphere of the event! They were recorded on what at the time was a state-of-the-art tape machine. The miracle is that they have survived the years since then sitting under Alan's stairs in very dusty boxes. With some recent, invaluable help from Mr Nick Pickett he has done a remarkable job in bringing them up to modern day standards.
mistake this is a unique collection!
Why Down River Recordings? In 1968 The American singer David Ackles (1937-1999) wrote and recorded a song called Down River - we liked it and called three clubs after it. I guess we still like it.
