Nick, you are really laying an education on the great unwashed masses, and those spruced up,too!
This is one helluva an album, and an old favorite-maybe MD will see this and see the intrest, and reissue it with bonus material.
Brighton was a great guitarist, and is sorely in need of a comeback. And NOT AT ALL a clone of Derek, except to people that think SRV is a Jimi clone,maybe.
Just the thought of Bead records was exceedingly brave and thought-provoking.Everybody marsh tonight!

Thank you.

Thank you, Nick.
Wanted to hear this BEAD LP already for a long time.
More than any other from the catalogue.
Years ago when I ordered several LPs from PW it was already gone.

candle mambo said...

wow, another BEAD gem!
been looking for this one for a loong time.
thanks so much!

Clifford Allen said...

Yeah, this is a really good LP. I had tried to get in touch with Ian a few years ago but it didn't work out. Anyone got solid contact info for him?

martin said...

This is lovely stuff, thank you. I confess that I know almost nothing about Mr Brighton. I sincerely hope he will be making more appearances here.

Immensely enjoyable. Thanks much.

Ian Brighton said...

Ian Brighton thank you for your comments. I do have copies available

Ian Brighton said...

Thank you for your kind comments

Nick said...

Thanks Ian. How can people contact you for a copy and are you OK with the files being downloadable?

armando said...

This music is pure beauty. Thank you very much. I also like the sound, with the distance in which the instruments appear.

Tantris said...

Listening with real interest and enjoyment to this. I was one of the people who wrote to Ian as he indicated that he had some LPs left - hopefully we'll see some form of reissue at some time, as this is very good indeed. Not only Marsh Gas, but a sense of the will o'the wisp around this music.

Sadly the links are dead now.

I fully agree but I can imagine free uploads in music blogs might make musicians/labels change their mind about re-issuing old material. Some o.o.p. titles reach a few hundred downloads here, documenting an interest in the music which is lovely, but how many of those downloaders would still buy a new re-issued copy if they have a full flac set on their harddrives?
(I understand the author of the quoted lines above would, so no offence in that direction)

One might say: Look - this brings attention to a particular release. Right here!
Well, there's other ways to do that (excluding the freely available flac set).

I'm absolutely sure the re-issue request above happened out of honest interest, but still... placed under a link to a freely available flac set I can't help seeing a cynical or at least paradox side to it.

Llinks are now dead - any chance of a re-up?

New 1fichier link doesn't seem to work for me, has anyone else tried?

Ernst Grgo Nebhuth said...

I assume Nick kas deleted the link.
I'm in the process of buying this LP from Ian Brighton.
Shall ask him wether he objects the offering of a link here.
If not I shall re-up the LP.

Thank you Ernst!

Hello, in case anyone isn't aware, Mr Brighton now has two CDs out.

'Now and Then' (collection of material including 'A voice you left behind' for Derek Bailey).
Confront Collectors Series CCS 62


'Reunion: Live from Cafe Oto' (featuring Evan Parker, John Russell, Philipp Wachsmann, Marcio Mattos and Trevor Taylor)
FMR Records CD430

They are both reviewed in the latest edition of Point of Departure:

Nick said...

Hi - both those CDs are enjoyable. It's great to see Ian active in the scene again.
