From Ray Laidlaw:
'New photos have recently surfaced thanks to Jamie McLaren.
In June 1972, we were preparing to go into the studio to record Lindisfarne's third album. There was a song we intentionally saved from the Fog on the Tyne sessions that we felt needed orchestration.
Me and Alan jumped on the train at Kings Cross and travelled to York meet my brother Paul who was - and still is - a proper musician. We played him the song and explained what we were after so he could write the orchestral arrangement. We also booked him to come to the studio to conduct and deal with the session musicians.
When the meeting was over Paul took us to the Lion and Lamb where we proceeded to make merry along with some of the locals, one of whom was Jamie. His brother Ian was a keen photographer who went home for his camera. Thanks Jamie for these memories.
The song was Dingly Dell.'
