NEW FAN!! 220
November 27 2006 Contributor: Ken Prescott

Hello from Canada!
I was recently pondering through a vintage record store in Toronto and stumbled upon Seasons, by Magna Carta. Reading through the liner notes, I noticed some interesting musicians (Wakeman, Johnstone, Visconti) So on a whim I took a chance and purchased the cd. Being a 60s and 70s collector, I had read something years ago about a band called Magna Carta, but their lack of notoriety in North America never caused me to come across their music...that is until March 3, 2006....When I took Seasons home and was blown away by the beauty and harmonies intertwined with the brilliant musicianship. For me it was like finding the Holy Grail! I love this album sooo much, it is incredible. To be in my early 40s and discover this lost gem from nearly 40 years ago is astounding. Thanks you SO MUCH!
I was wondering if you ever have toured Canada or the USA? WIll you ever again? As well, did you ever tour with Lindisfarne?, another British folk rock group I admire very much.
Thanks for the honesty and purity you convey in your lyrics. I am so glad to hear the the band that created such a masterpiece as Seasons are still together.

PS: I just discovered that Airport Song reached #111 in the Billboard Music Charts in 1970 in the USA...incredible...

Hi there,
We did play in Canada this year - not so far from you (check the diary for details). Sadly it was only one concert and at the moment there are no plans for another....but we're working on it. We're so glad that you like the music.
Chris said he would contact you personallay so watch out for that in your in-box.

Hello, Chris, Linda and Matt,
We visited your concert in Nyega on November 24th and enjoyed it very much.
Especially the second part, after the break, was very special to us. We have most of your records, on vinyl as well as on CD, but never were able to visit a concert. From now on we look forward to listen to you live at a concert when you are near by Leeuwarden! (We'll contact Matt for adresses)
Your jokes, marvellous playing, chats, everything was very special to us during and after the concert!
Please go on composing and playing your beautiful music

Durk and Jetske

Dear Both,
Thank you for your nice comments - I know that sometimes we get a bit carried away with the chat - but all northerners together can't be bad can it?

Sorry for Leaving your Concert... 218

Hello Magna Carta,

Saturday the 18th of November we visited your concert, at Cultura in Ede. We enjoyed the music, but halfway the second part we've got an urgent telephone call. Because of the suddenly approaching death of our father, we had to leave the concert. Hopefully we didn't interrupt you.

Greetings, Marc & Ingrid.

It was very brave and thoughtful of you to write to the guestbook. Of course you did not disturb us although I do always wonder why people have to leave and hope that everything is OK. You now have my private e-mail so please let me know if you would like me to remove this mail from the book.

Love to you both, Linda
