The 10th Uncut New Music Playlist Of 2020

William Tyler, New Order, Todd Rundgren, Gwenifer Raymond and much more

As archive finds go, the material here is a connoisseur’s dream. Forty-two live tracks, all but six of which haven’t been heard since they went out on John Peels Top Gear, Sounds Of The Seventies and Wally Whyton’s Country Meets Folk. At their deceptively ramshackle, raga-inflected best, Messrs Jansch, Renbourn, Cox, Thompson and McShee achieved a musical empathy comparable in its field to the Marley-Tosh-Livingston-era Wailers and Dylan’s ’66 Band. Among the riches are Terry Cox’s tribute to Moondog, the rarely performed “Springtime Promises” and two lyrically different versions of “Light Flight”, the theme music to BBC2’s Take Three Girls. Talking of which, somebody somewhere must still have all that show’s splendid incidental music. Get searching.
