There was an interesting programme on BBC4 tonight, featuring performances by singer-songwriters of the 70s (mostly from the Old Grey Whistle Test archives). Dory Previn, Ralph McTell, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, Roy Harper, Bobbie Gentry, Buffy Saint-Marie, Don McLean, Gordon Lightfoot and John Martyn amongst others. But I couldn't help but think of a certain singer-songwriter of the 1970s not featured who most surely should have been.

But that aside there were some nice performances. It might be available on BBC iPlayer.

Really enjoyed the series. A particular highlight for me was The Pearl, by Judee Sill. I've been a fan of hers for a while now and I hadn't seen that footage before. Fantastic.

JCM - IIRC there were a couple of performances from Neil Young, but you'll probably have seen them before
