The Wizz Jones tape

This was on a 7.5ips reel and labelled "anonymous folk" which is a pity as they shouldn't be, and Phil thinks it was recorded at The Marquee Studios some time in the early seventies.

Thank you once again to John Beresford for identifying this group of tracks;

"The vocalist is Wizz Jones and the samples are takes of the first five tracks on his 1972 LP 'Right Now', which was recorded at Marquee Studios. Other musicians credited on the LP sleeve include John Renbourn (sitar, harmonica), Pete Berryman (guitars), Sue Draheim (fiddle) and Sandy Jones (Wizz' s wife) (banjo).

Following on from this discovery, I found that tape 43 which Phil had originally attributed to John Renbourn is in fact the rest of this Wizz Jones album and so has been moved here as a correction.
