Been listening since '77 39

Man, I love you folks. Here in the US I mostly get blank looks when I mention Magna Carta. I've owned 3 copies of "Seasons" on vinyl (I've unintentionally destroyed 2 from listening to them so much - and struggling to find copies here in the states during the pre-Internet era was no small feat, I can tell you), a compilation called "Spotlight on Magna Carta", and "Putting It Back Together", the American release of "Took a Long Time".
I was fortunate enough to get a copy of Songs from Wastie's Orchard" on eBay on cd last year, but I realize I have a long way to go with the extent that the band has evolved since then. I can proudly state that I am an acoustic guitarist (a working one for 25 years) in a large part because of the Magna influence I have had over the years. I realize I will probably never be able to hear your band live unless I can find a way overseas, but if all I can ever say is "thank you", then Thank You. My friends and my children hear and love your music, and your music has touched and shaped my soul. May Magna Carta shine for many years to come...

been very close to getting into America a few times down the last few years but sadly it hasn't happened yet. We have done a few concerts in South America - but we're still working on the U.S. of A. We're talking to a couple of Canadian Festivals right now too - so you never know what might happen. - Love Linda

I've just come across this web site and I was unaware that the band were still going until now. Sorry it 'took a long time' to find that out! I saw Magna Carta several times in the 1970s and still have fantastic memories of listening in awe to 'Lord of the Ages' at Birmingham Town Hall. I think Magna Carta were the most underrated band ever. Hope you are coming to a town near me in South Wales in 2006.

It would have been so easy to realise that you (Magna Carta) would have a web site...yet it never occurred to me! Good to hear that you are still playing the wonderful music I remember from my teens... and early days in Hampstead - best wishes to you both...

Sorry you didn't get the voice on Stuart's show.

Good to hear you are still going after all this time. Maybe some airplay on Radio 2 now and Mike Harding nowhere in sight!?

70's fan.
