I love the headline in the paper itself "Famous for being ignored"  The rest of the article is well written with quotes from both Pete and Clive

Hello Andrew - If you're meaning what I think you're meaning, I should point out that such value consists only in what someone is in practice willing to pay....

I'm sure (know that) high prices are sometimes paid for the stuff you can't buy easily.  
 
I'm just amazed at the prices asked on Amazon for the Lakeside Sessions when its available for ten quid (+p&p) from the Hillside Shop (or even less occasionally at gigs!)

Why don't we give all our vinyl records to Pete so he can flog them on the Web for £200 each and then give us each £150, using the balance to finance future recordings? We've all got them on tape or CD anyway. Trouble is the price might go down but on the other hand a sudden upsurge in PA activity would spark off interest in his current output. Can't lose.

From Times Online  Comment Central
 
March 17, 2008
Music to Listen to - Pete Atkin and Clive James
 

 
Did you know that the author and TV presenter Clive James writes song lyrics?
 
I do because I've been listening to them for years, ever since I heard the man who sings them - Pete Atkin - perform for the first time.
 
Today Atkin and James release a new CD, entitled Midnight Voices. It consists of new arrangements of some of their finest songs. I recommend it highly - it's literate, tuneful and moody. I am addicted.
 
Since it is hard to categorise, you may be better off sampling the music than trying to capture its spirit from reading my prose. Or even John Bungey's prose.  
 
So go to the Pete Atkin website (the creation of appreciative fans), scroll down and on the left hand column is a list entitled "Listen to". The fifth song on that list - Touch has a Memory - is the opening song on the album.

Excellent stuff from Danny, and thanks for pointing it out, Kevin.
 
I think that this nice photo was taken at last week's CD launch just before Pete and Clive launched into "Laughing Boy". You guitar-experts will now be able to tell which guitar Pete was playing !!

I wonder if this is the same Danny Finkelstein I was at school with.  Pete appeared many times at University College School in the 70s, which could explain Danny's awareness of and interest in him!

Does this help?
 

 
Daniel Finkelstein is a weekly columnist and Comment Editor of The Times . His  
blog, Comment Central , is a personal round up of the best political opinion on  
the web. Before joining the paper in 2001, he was adviser to both Prime Minister  
John Major and Conservative leader William Hague He is also a regular columnist  
in the Jewish Chronicle. An LSE graduate and grandson of the founder of the  
Wiener Library, Daniel trained as a computer systems analyst. He began his  
political career on the centre-left, standing as an SDP candidate in the 1987  
elections. He went on to become director of the Social Market Foundation, and  
later served as head of the Policy Unit at Conservative Central Office. He  
became among the earliest advocates of the modernisation of the Conservative  
Party, laying out the principles of change in a series of Times columns and  
speeches. He was awarded the OBE in 1997 as part of John Major's resignation  
honours list.  London Jewish Cultural Centre programme of upcoming events.

 
I seem to recall his doing some one the use of statistics in football - in conjunction with a Warwick University statistician, I believe -, but I was never sufficiently in either statistics or football to be bothered finding out what it was.

I believe that Danny appears regularly as a political panellist on Newsnight, BBC2.

You certainly do have the right chap. He has also been a guest on More 4's The Last Word, more recently titled David Starkey's Last Word

Daniel Finklestein is indeed co-ordinator of The Times' 'Fink Tank' in which he uses complicated statistical analysis to predict the outcome of football matches - usually on a Saturday.  This is done with a couple of guys from Warwick University and in the absence of last Saturday's newspaper, I cannot give thier names.
 
Incidentally, I picked up my copy of 'The Word' about an hour ago and will read it later this evening.

The description doesn't help (I've not seen Danny since school), but since Simon Garfield was also there in my year, maybe it was more of a hot-bed of journalism than I remember.

Simon perhaps this is the Danny you knew from school, he probably had a tad more hair back in the day! Apologies for the low quality image, it's a thumbnail from the timesonline website.

FWIW, Danny F lives in Pinner and I seehim from time to time at the tube station. He is also Deputy Editor of the Jewish Chronicle and I occasionally have conversations with him as he is a good friend of Harrow Relay For Life organised by my wife and I each September for Cancer Research UK.
