That worked, Rob -- it all makes sense again. Mostly... Smiley

The other church at that junction is the desanctified St Peter's, right next to Kettle's Yard where I met up with Pete a year ago this week, prior to our last meeting with Clive.

 
Hi Steve -
 
Thanks for the additional information. That final meeting with Clive must have been a truly unforgettable occasion.
 
You are right, of course. I stopped looking on Google Maps when I found the church right on the junction so didn't spot nearby St. Peter's as an alternative candidate. It is actually an area I am not familiar with, which brings home how limited the horizons of "my" Cambridge was in my student days. I probably only set foot over Magdalene Bridge a couple of times in my three years and never visited Kettle's Yard, although, as I recall, it was being opened up during that time. I finally got there with my wife a couple of years ago. I never ventured as far south as the Fitzwilliam, either. That pleasure still awaits, if I'm spared!
 
Vena Cork's first novel, "Thorn", has just arrived. It seems to be out of print, but I sourced a second-hand copy in good condition. A quick flick through would suggest it is not the one set in Cambridge, but I am looking forward to reading it none-the-less.
 
All the best,

Thank you so much Steve (and Dr. Z) for making this available. It is indeed a most enlightening and fascinating discussion. More treasure for the trove.

Thank you again gentlemen, for another achingly beautiful number, which I've not heard before. And yes Robert, I too hear echoes of other songs, from the Lakeside Series I think. What a treat!
Good health to all.

Thank you Steve for the clarification.
Julie C's version is charming too of course.

Thanks for that background Colin -- I thought it was a little early in his career (and in the '70s!) for Pete to have been playing a real stadium, but a quick Google search didn't fetch me that fascinating page. A shame to see these rock venues go, but then even if it had survived it wouldn't have the same atmosphere today, would it. The music too has changed.  
 
If I could find this kind of background on more of those places I might add the links to that '70s gigs' page...

 8   Pete Atkin / News / Hillside Music: stock situation update  24.08.20 at 23:31 
Started by S J Birkill | Newest post by S J Birkill
Pete's Hillside Music shop is now sold out of The Lakeside Sessions, Volume 1, "History and Geography".  
 
There's still some stock of Volume 2 ("A Dream Of Fair Women") , but what's left will not last long, and there's no current prospect of a reprint for either.  
 
The "Live in Australia" 2-CD set is out of stock, but Pete is hoping to re-issue this one.  
 
"Winter Spring" is also running low, and when the remaining stock is gone there will be no more.  
 
Otherwise, stocks of "Midnight Voices" and "The Colours Of The Night" remain healthy, but I expect you've all got those.  
 
To make sure you don't miss out, visit the Shop page.

My shamefully belated thanks for this very moving rendition. I can't begin to fathom how you Pete and Simon Wallace managed to concoct this remotely glistening pearl. And the next two tracks of the what may become the Lockdown Series are equally superb. What a treat!
Stay well all.

The Clive James website archive continues to grow. I've now completed six of the collections in the Video section:
 
https://archive.clivejames.com/video/vplayerPA.htm contains a selection from Pete, as featured on our Home Page;
https://archive.clivejames.com/video/vplayerLP.htm brings together the best of Clive's late-period video interviews;
https://archive.clivejames.com/video/vplayerTITL.htm encapsulates the Talking in the Library series, with excuses for video quality;
https://archive.clivejames.com/video/vplayerPC.htm contains the 'Postcard from...' series of travel programmes;
https://archive.clivejames.com/video/vplayerNP.htm collects Clive's other, non-'Postcard' travelogues; and
https://archive.clivejames.com/video/vplayerFAME.htm is our best shot yet at re-assembling the mighty 'Fame in the 20th Century' series.
 
There's more video to come, including Clive's own 'video finds' and celebrity interviews from his mainstream TV years, with just a glimpse (I promise) of Margarita Pracatan!
 
If anyone has relevant audio or video material that they don't see in the Archive, please let me know so we can include it! The Archive's entry page is HERE -- please note that for the time being we operate independently of the 'official' clivejames.com.
 
Steve
