Kevin Ayers and Ollie Hallsall – Thanks to Marvin Siau for this wondeful photo!
Kevin Ayers released a stunning volume of work over the years and I am currently putting together a big spreadsheet of all his songs and albums. However progress is slow, so any help would be appreciated! The idea is that you will be able to use this site to cross reference his songs and get familiar with different versions that appeared on different albums, live recordings, compilations and singles. It’s a big task, but I think it will be a good project and hopefully along the way we will get to discover and hear some Kevin Ayers music that we didn’t even know existed.
We began writing this blog at the end of July 2013 and shortly afterwards we went to Kevin’s Memorial Event in Deia, Mallorca which was held on the 16th August 2013, which would have been Kevin’s 69th birthday. Susan has written a book about the events leading up to this event and the even itself. It is now available on Amazon.
