Some new old songs

Every so often I check YouTube to see what new old music has been posted, and today I found:

Haitian Fight Song, here played by Danny Thompson in Norway in 1968

and Bert Jansch and Danny Thompson playing Thames Lighterman (great pictures as well as great music):

Bert Jansch composition. Recorded at the BBC for John Peel’s Night Ride, broadcast Dec 18, 1968. Apologies for poor sound quality: taken from 50 year old 1/4″ 4-track mono tape running at 3 3/4 ips. The title refers to Pentangle roadie Bobby Cadman, whose previous occupation had been Thames Lighterman. Bert’s song “One For Jo” is also about him, addressed to Bobby’s wife.
