    Tapestry of Delights:
    This progressive/avant-garde jazz artist has been assisted by a wide variety of artists on his releases. Only Open Music has really attracted much interest from collectors to date. Ophenian is his own record label. He also went on to compose music for the ballet 'Rambert'. He was one of the country's top flautists but moved to live on the continent in the late eighties.
    The Deep Down Heavy album is interesting, it being an amalgam of Bob Downes' music and Robert Cockburn's poetry. They collaborated on most tracks but also had their own moments; Cockburn, for example, reading extracts from his poetry. One memorable track, entitled Poplar Cheam, includes references to more than 40 underground stations with lyrics like:-
    She highgate in her wanstead
    And wapping in her bow
    And shadwell in her hackney hayes
    Makes aldwych greenwich go!
    (from Poplar Cheam)

    An underrated album for sure and something of a surprise on the Music For Pleasure label. ~ (VJ/MWh).

    Spedding has got to be THE under-rated UK guitarist. He played on a TON of great stuff, from jazz, rock to pop (I must listen to the Wombles again!)
