Duffy Power

Duffy Power has long been regarded by Blues critics and cognoscenti as one of the most compelling British singers and songwriters of his generation.

This new compilation brings together several BBC radio sessions - recorded between 1968 and 1973 - which had previously been feared lost or wiped. Also included is a bonus session from 1994. None of these recordings have ever been released before.

The 8 page booklet includes rare photographs from Duffy's own collection and comprehensive liner notes by Colin Harper, author of Dazzling Stranger: Bert Jansch and the British folk and blues revival. The booklet also features liner notes by Duffy himself, detailing his own recollections of these sessions.


"At the time of these recordings, I had mixed feelings as to the worth of my performances and choice of material...So it came as a pleasant surprise to hear these sessions for the first time in 28 years or more"
Duffy Power
