Did anyone catch Arthur Lee when he came back in the 00s? I saw him at the tiny Gaelic Club in Sydney and it was mind blowing how good his stuff sounded live (helped by the fact he had an amazing band behind him). Also caught him on the Saturday night of Glastonbury 2004 in a half full acoustic tent - the options that night were Oasis on the main stage or a double header of Arthur Lee followed by The Tindersticks in The Acoustic Tent. Hmm, tricky. Wish I’d got to see the Royal Albert Hall show with the full orchestra. Was something of a shock when he died so soon after his comeback
