Trader Horne – Peel Sunday Concert – 1970 – Past Daily Soundbooth
Trader Horne – In Concert – Sunday Peel Concert – July 12, 1970 – BBC Radio 1 –
Trader Horne to end the week, in I suspect one of the very rare (if not the only) broadcast appearance by this band, presented by John Peel on his Sunday Concert series for BBC Radio 1 on July 12, 1970.
Together for a little over a year, the duo (with additional musicians) recorded only one album before calling it quits weeks after this performance. McAuley went off to form another short-lived band, The Poor Mouth before splitting and getting involved in session work before going solo. Judy Dyble went on to marry DJ and lyricist Simon Stable and joined a short-lived band called Dyble, Coxhill & the Miller Brothers. She retired from music in 1973. She returned to music and performed at Fairport Convention’s Cropredy Festival in the ‘Anniversary’ years of 1997, 2002 and 2007 and pursued a solo recording career.
Over the years Trader Horne’s debut album Morning Way has acquired mythical status. The band’s singles are now highly collectable. Trader Horne was featured in Kingsley Abbott’s book 500 Lost Gems of the 60s. To coincide with this, Stuart Maconie made a one-hour biopic radio special on Dyble’s career for his BBC 6 Music programme “Freak Zone”, as well as a significant piece in Record Collector.
Jackie and Judy agreed to reunite as Trader Horne for a one-off show on 29 November 2015 at Bush Hall in London, to celebrate 45 years since Morning Way was first released. They played solo spots, then the whole of the album, but not in the original track order. Positive reviews included a 5 star review in The Times. They also appeared at the 2016 Green Man Festival.
In case you missed them the first time around, here is a chance to get aquainted by way of this rather short concert performance for John Peel in July of 1970.
