Alex Glasgow - Northern Drift & Joe Lives My CD of Northern Drift and Joe Lives! arrived this morning - many thanks for the speedy service, it's much appreciated. Many years ago I had a LP version of Joe Lives! and really enjoyed John Woodvine's performance. Sadly, somewhere along the way in various house moves and de-clutterings it went astray and I thought it was gone for good. I had not been able to find a new copy in any format anywhere. But just the other day I was prompted to do a new Google search for John Woodvine and Joe Lives! and found your firm and all your marvellous material, and there it was, hence my order. I am very pleased to have a fresh new copy of Joe Lives! It's playing now as I type this message. I'm trying not to sing along too loud... As an expat-Geordie I'll be coming back for more of your recordings. Best regards Alan T

When singer/songwriter Alan Hull died suddenly in November 1995, the reverberations travelled much further than his native Tyneside. As a founding member of the North East group Lindisfarne, his unforgettable songs had been heard around the world. Anyone who listened gained an insight into his thoughts on love, loss, heroes, villains, politics or just having fun, and all were married to melodies that could be delicate and beautiful or grand and anthemic.

On the 19th November 2005, ten years after his death, over 40 of Alan Hull's musical and literary friends and colleagues gathered at Newcastle City Hall to perform his words and music as their own tribute before a hugely appreciative home-town audience. The money raised by the concert was donated to the North East Young Musicians Fund and all thirty pieces performed by the all-star ensemble that night are featured on this DVD.

Featuring Phil Armstrong, Michael Bailey, Alan Clark, Simon Cowe, Andrew Craggs, Marty Craggs, Steve Cunninghan, Steve Daggett, Brian Duffy, Tommy Duffy, Mike Elliott, Frankie Gibbon, Charlie Harcourt, Graham Hardy, Brendan Healy, Tim Healy, John Hedley, Robin Howe, Brian Hume, Irene Hume, Ray Jackson, Jack Laidlaw, Jed Laidlaw, Ray Laidlaw, Ian McCallum, Finn McCardle, John Miles Jnr,
Billy Mitchell, Scott Mitchell, Terry Morgan, Jimmy Nail, Paul Nichols, Tom Pickard, Greg Pullen, Rachael Rhodes, Chris Ringer, Stephen Robson, Bob Smeaton, Paul Smith, Julian Sutton, Kathryn Tickell and Peter Tickell.

Pete Fyfe - www.folking.com - 14/02/2009
Tribute and charity concerts appear to be two a penny in the North East (I wish they did in the South East too!) and at least everybody knows how to enjoy themselves. For this particular concert take one of the best ever 'folk' songwriter's and add some tasty musicians to the mix and you really have cause to celebrate.

Alan Hull provided some of the most memorable songs and hooks in folk-rock and along with the rest of his band mates in Lindisfarne created music that is timeless. Just scanning the sleeve notes for the songs including 'United States Of Mind', 'Scarecrow Song' and 'River' is like re-awakening my misspent youth at the Greyhound in Croydon where I first saw the band perform.

I can still vividly see Alan holding court along with the majestic sounds of Ray Jackson's tuneful harmonica and the whole audience trying to be Geordie for the night. But, I digress from what is a truly special souvenir of this more recent concert on 19th November 2005 when the massed ranks of L indisfarne past and present drew a packed audience to the hallowed Newcastle City Hall.

Featuring an array of special guests including Tim Healey, Prelude, Ian McCallum (of Stiff Little Fingers fame) and Jimmy Nail's subtle theatrical rendering of 'This Heart Of Mine' the audience must have been in seventh heaven - I know I would have been. I knew practically every song and as much as everyone else who attended that night felt proud to be part of the Tyneside tradition.

Talking of tradition, the Kathryn Tickell Band gave a tremendous performance featuring a compilation of Hull's melodies that was both inventive and smile inducing in its individuality. Of course, no show of this kind would be complete without some great singers and in this we had the glorious tones of Billy Mitchell, Ray Jackson and Marty Craggs ...all seasoned professionals and of course band members in Lindisfarne finishing with a well deserved standing ovation for the anthem 'Run For Home'. All I can say is I wish I had been there in person... in the meantime, this DVD will do nicely.
