I saw Roger Edwards from Purple Ear today. Roger was a major influence when I started this Buddhism lark and was one of the original SGI people in Somerset. We had a very pleasant day following an invigorating Kosen Rufu Gongyo in Taunton, today being November 18th and 77 years since the Soka Gakkai was founded by Mr Makiguchi. It’s also 63 years since he died – co-incidentally on the same day, today.

We went to my parents-in-law where interesting histories of Accrington were exchanged. Roger has had some compy probs and can’t access his old purple ear stuff, but fortunately (or not, I suppose it depends on your viewpoint!), in 2003 I downloaded everything he had online at the time. So Roger, just for you until you tell me to pull them, here are your tracks. I think that they are all yours as I’ve just uploaded ones with similar dates and sounds. I hear what you say about the North African feel. You should do more like these. I think a trip to Mali like we were talking today would be a great benefit to you.

Postscript:

Roger Died in 2017.  He was a great bloke.  I really miss some people from my life, and, even though I didn’t see him much in later years, when we occasionally met –  it was like before.

For his music, Santur City is still luxurious to my ears.  It’s one of those above.  Goa4Goa is pretty good as well.  A bit like Can’s E.F.S.‘s that we did as The Crawling Chaos  – an example here
