Salty Dog


This band was folk based, though not out and out traditional folk. These recordings were made in a folk club somewhere near Wolverhampton. I can't remember much about these sessions, and have no recollections of the band at all. Still, the songs are good, and apart from the lead singer, who's voice is a little shrill, they sound pretty good. Remember, these recordings are almost 50 years old, and recorded in mono at 71/2 ips.

Had this from Keith Turle, one of the band.

Hi Colin The recording you did for the Band, was - I think maybe 1973/74 however I could be corrected on that. It was recorded at J.B,s club which was then in King St. Dudley, this was done on a Sunday afternoon as I recall. The band members were as follows : John Bryant - Vocals ( he of shrill voice) Dave Burton - Vocals. Keith Turley - Lead guitar, B. vocals. John Worton - 2nd Lead guitar, B. vocals. Roger Hudson - Bass Guitar. Graham Hollis - Drums, Vibraphone.

The band gigged for a while before fading into the sunset, I still have contact with most of the band members, I still play guitar and write and record in my own home studio. I remember being in awe of the Ferrograph reel to reel you used at the recording, how things have changed in recording hardware. I hope you find this information useful for your Website, I cant tell you how surprised I was when I first came across the Garage Tapes, I do have a copy of the tape but never expected to see it pop up again like this. If I think of anymore information I will contact you. p.s I did enjoy the other items on the Tapes.
