This set contains informal backstage tapes, previously thought lost, from 1966 Waldeck Festival. John Pearse has near-mythic status among guitar players, builders & designers. "The folk guitarist who taught the protest generation how to play" - The Guardian. The 18 tracks presented here, for the first time ever, showcase Pearse backstage at the Waldeck Folk Festival in 1966. Pearse appeared at this premier German festival on four consecutive years, between 1965-68. The tapes offer a rare glimpse of his casual, non-studio persona. Unless you were in the first ten rows, you wouldn't have heard him so clearly. Tracks include: Beacon On The Hill, Cocaine, (I'm) Satisfied, Seaport Town, Trouble In Mind, Blow Away The Morning Dew.
