Today Danny Kirwin was born
Check the Penguin Archives for his biography.
From Wikipedia info about the album Fleetwood Mac - Kiln House :
After Green left in 1970, the band considered splitting up, but they continued briefly as a four-piece before recruiting keyboard player Christine McVie. Kirwan and Spencer handled the guitars and vocals together on the Kiln House album, released in the summer of that year, and they were able to continue the working relationship they had started whilst recording Spencer's solo album the previous year.
Kirwan's songs on the album included Station Man (co-written with Spencer and John McVie) which became a live staple for some years, stretching into the post-1974 Buckingham-Nicks era. His other songs were Jewel-Eyed Judy, dedicated to a friend of the band, Judy Wong; the energetic Tell Me All The Things You Do, and Earl Gray, an atmospheric instrumental which Kirwan largely composed while Peter Green was still in the band. Kirwan could also be heard providing distinctive backing vocals to some of Spencer's numbers, such as the 1950s-flavoured album opener, This Is The Rock.
Other Kirwan compositions from the second half of 1970, such as those that eventually surfaced on the 2003 "Madison Blues" CD box set, included Down At The Crown, with lyrics centring on a pub down the lane from the communal band house 'Benifold' in Headley, Hampshire. The unsuccessful single Dragonfly, recorded late in the year, was also written by Kirwan, and included lyrics adapted from a poem by WH Davies. Peter Green said of Dragonfly, "The best thing he ever wrote... that should have been a hit." This was not to be the last time Kirwan used a poem as lyrics for a song, and may have been a solution to Kirwan's apparent occasional lack of inspiration when writing lyrics. The B-side of the single, The Purple Dancer, was a co-written effort uniquely featuring both Kirwan and Spencer on lead vocals.
Date 2007_October_29 my Blog featured Fleetwood Mac - Then Play On 1969
Sooooo much better than the 'poppy' Fleetwood Mac with Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks as you can check for yourself if you follow the instructions in the comment......
Labels: Fleetwood Mac
'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get.... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
Pass to extract the file : 080513
The file is a small 30MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that, neither about the sleeve.
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_may article !) : JeansMusicBlog
