16/5/22 – MARTY’S DAILY ALBUM PICKS

Music today has been seventies folk-rock band Trees and their debut album The Garden of Jane Delawney (1970). Singer Celia Humphris as I understand it became the recorded voice on the London Tube, including repeating “Mind The Gap”. What a claim to fame, if she only got 1p for every time it was uttered. She died in 2021 aged 71. The other band members were bassist/keyboardist Bias Boshell who wrote most of the material and found himself replacing Patrick Moraz in The Moody Blues. David Costa played 6 & 12 string acoustic and dulcimer and became a graphic artist working on a long list of famous album covers. Drummer Unwin Brown and lead guitarist Barry Clarke seem to have disappeared after the band broke up in 1972. They made just two albums, the second, On the Shore, was released in 1971.
