Unicorn for a while!! Fantastic site, I'll be
keeping abreast of its progress.
I finally finished re-mixing the "Shed sessions" after
battling with my operating system. I wonder if Pat will
authorise MP3 excerpts from the songs?
All the Best

Unicorn to the world!! I know all their songs by heart and
if others can only hear the magic they created, I'm sure
they will love it too. I thank my friend Carol for sending
me Todd's email that got us all connected. Looking forward
to a great 2001. Everyone keep up the good work, best

Wasn't he a handsome devil in those days! I'm glad I didn't
get his chin ( sorry dad )
Seriously though I know you have done him proud with this
site, I didn't know how good they were as I was running
around in nappies when they were playing together. Maybe
now dad will give me a free copy of the "Best of" cd.....

did a great job. It's about time that Unicorn have their
day, and I think it's on its way. They've always been one
of my favorite bands of all time, and now it's time that
others have the same pleasure of hearing their music.
Everyone reading this MAKE SURE YOU BUY THE BEST OF CD THAT
IS AVAILABLE FROM SEE FOR MILES!!! You won't be sorry.
Pat, Ken, Pete, and Kevin: your music has not, and will not

certainly deserve this long overdue web site - especially
as they now have a new CD to sell. How about online
ordering? It can be set up for free at www.ccnow.com
Have a look at my site www.nostromomusic.co.uk to see how
easy it is.

Name: Jim Ottewell and Valerie E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I am pete perriers cousin and remember him singing
"does your chewing gum lose its flavour on the bed post
over night" Lonnie Donagan? when pete was about 11 or 12
I also followed the group and bought all the LPs through
the 70's and still play them and enjoy them. Petrer wrote a
very moving song for his mothers when she died and sung it
at the funeral. I have it on a very badly recorded tape. I
told him to let dave gilmour hear it. Try and persuade pete
to get a demo done for all to hear. I think its great. The
Best of is a good cd that i have in the car. Well done for
creating a very proffesional site.

Name: Jackie Helm E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: I have known Ken & his family going back many years as I
lived in the same village-Ockham & was friends with his
sister Pat.I was also there in the early days of the band
playing in Ockham Parish Room calling themselves The Pink
Bears!! (around 1966) and followed them endlessly for years
& have been married to one of their roadies Dave Helm for 30
years now!! I have always loved their music & Pat,Ken & Pete
& others who came & went - I am so thrilled with their new
CD & web site. Congrats to you all.

some good things, folk and times are for ever.
The good Norman has provided me with clues of your various
whereabouts and misdemeanours over the years - so I knew
about the CD and the site plan. Both great ideas. Wish you

the good times I shared with you (back in the 70’s when I
lived in England) and for giving your music to us all. It
was great then, it is great now. I have been listening to
your cd, and I am spreading the word! ( I hear Pete has
been singing with Pat not long ago....I wish I had been
there). A Hi! to all you roadies too: Mike, Frank, Dave,
Alec and Norman.

will tell Mike about it!)

Name: Neil Buttery E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: The only recordings I had of Unicorn songs were on a dodgy
sony cassette, recorded on a dodgy dansette circa 1974, so
when this dodgy guy where I work told me he used to play in
the band (Pat- big respec'yo)and Best Of was about to be
released,I slapped my order down.The first thoughts on
hearing some of the songs were "I wish I'd heard these
twenty years ago!"
Superb web site, I'll visit again

Name: stephen E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Finally got my chance to hear Unicorn after many
ravings from my friend Dave, and they are very good
indeed...From the clips here, definitly left me wanting
Its a cliche phrase- but, it sounds timeless (and well
recorded). Like many underrated (underselling) bands
history proves what holds water, as this seems to do.

Name: Pat Martin. E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hey all you cornheads out there,please buy a ''''''Best of
Unicorn'CD.If we sell a few,See For Miles Records will do
another one and then all the three David Gilmour produced
album material will be available and digitally re
processed.This means no more searching for vinyl copies of
the albums and us boys can then retire to a trailor park in
Bognor Regis and contemplate our navels.

Name: Jon Van Horn E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: as Pat said, please buy the "Best Of" CD--you won't be
disappointed! Absolutely terrific music, and the best thing
is: if a second "Best of" is released by See For Miles
records, it will be every bit as fine as the first disc. Yes,
Unicorn are that good! There are a lot more gems waiting to
finally see the light of day on CD release. Please spread the
word and have your music loving friends check out this
website to hear some samples!

play real, good music and not Britney Spears or Limp
Bizkit, the world would be a better place. What you guys
could really use to get the word out is a tribute album.

Name: Alan Harvey E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: I first met Pat and the lads (then The Late) on Friday 21st
June 1968 at Bourne Hall in Farnham Surrey. We (Magic
Alice) were the support band, and got blown away. I have a
poster for that gig on my toilet wall!
After that we bumped into one another many times over the
years and eventually I ended up depping for Pat on drums at
a few gigs - and very enjoyable they were, and I hope will
continue to be!
I thoroughly endorse all the good things that have been
said about the music of Unicorn, and this website. Good
luck lads - you deserve it! I will make it a crusade to
get Kevin back in the fold and you boys giggin' again -
zimmer frames or no.

Name: Ken Baker E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Since the Best of Unicorn CD was released it's been like being a member of a group again,a mini-return to the old days. The work we did all those years ago stands the test of time doesn't it! But it was reading the names and messages on the Website that really took me back! No don't go getting all sentimental now.
Of course I know the danger once you get to the big 50 mark of getting all nostalgic and wandering down that old memory lane. All those sunny memories and familar faces.....?
No fear you won't catch me going all soft! You find yourself slipping into the older generation stereotype. Especially as Rock 'n Roll was supposed to be a rebellion against the old generation! But it happens, yes Dave I do remember the time we........
I was sorting through some old lyrics the other day and I found a discarded verse of "Sleepsong" which reminded me of what it was all about. There had been a house warming party when Pat and Shirley moved to Cranleigh and I had drank too much. To cut a long story short my parent's car got crashed and the next morning I had to be sure to keep a low profile- "to keep out of sight". Does it ring any bells with any one ? Hello to all my freinds out there in computerland, and a big thank you also to our new friends across the Atlantic

Name: corey burke Comments: If you think "The Best of" is a gem, wait until you
hear the (hopefully soon to be released) "Shed Sessions".
It provides even greater evidence of the remarkable depth and breadth of the band's versatility. Peter Perryer
and Patrick Martin's ethereal harmonies linger long after the last note fades. May I hear some more, please?
Sunday, May 6th 2001 - 08:17:45 AM
Name: corey burke Comments: Regarding the "Shed Sessions" CD, I seem to have placed
foot firmly in mouth once again.
Ken Baker sings lead on all but about three of the songs (Peter Perryer sings lead on the others) and works out all the harmonies. Peter sings the part above Ken and Pat Martin
sings the one below him. Pat also does the falsetto
above Peter. My abject apologies to Ken Baker for
slighting (unintentionally, I swear) his artistry.
Incidentally, the vocals to "Singing Your Praise" were recorded outdoors in Pat Martin's dad's garden on a
beautiful English summer day. If you listen carefully, you can hear the birds in accompaniment.
you can actually hear

Name: David DiSanzo E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: I wanted to publicly thank Ken Baker for his posting! Sleep Song has always been a favorite, it was great to hear where it came from. Funny, because I always pictured it as something similar...having too much to drink the night before, maybe making a fool of oneself, then that next hungover morning. "I was reaching too tall...". It is such a beautiful song! Thanks again Unicorn for all the great music.

Name: Jackie Helm E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Dear Todd
I hate to critisize your beautiful web site BUT there is one major component missing - that is, a joke from Pat Martin - which he is the most famous for. Come on Pat, put your thinking hat on & come up with a good one, that even I can get!

I have just jumped back many years to my youth, spent travelling round with my brother Ken and enjoying the ego trip of being related to one of the band. Looking at the guest book has left me reeling with memories from all the old names, Mick, Jackie and Dave, Norman etc. etc.
Good luck with the site, I shall visit it again

Name: Jim Nolan E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: The marvellous thing about the web is if you think it there's a site on it.
I was scratching round the back of the hi-fi trying to work out why no sound was coming out. When while on my knees I looked down the side of the amp to find a clutch of singles stuck down there. They had been around a bit surviving at least three house moves. I pulled them out to find PF sloane, and the memories came flooding back.
Great song, great band, great times, and a great site.
Can life get any better.

Name: Brian Robinson E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: OK - serves me right for assuming that Nokia Media Development needed a musician to develop media. They really needed another manager to attend endless back-slapping meetings. Does anyone else wonder how many managers this world needs??
I needed an alternative e-mail address, see above, below or sideways.
I'm the one who rescued the "Shed Sessions" from imminent oxide degradation and I can do the same for any of you old rockers with dodgy tapes.
Love Unicorn, love you all.

Name: Jill Robinson E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Kenny, Pat, Pete – hello guys – what memories come flooding back ……….
I, like Jackie(Hi Jackie) also was born in Ockham. I went to Primary School with Kenny and know Pete from St.Bede’s and the band of course and Pat from the band. Like Jackie I was also one of their first ‘groupies’(I even still have the membership card for ‘Senders’ fan club – signed! ermm 1963 I think). Any one remember Ockham Youth Club?
The Web Site is fantastic and they really deserve the recognition – well done.
I got the Best Of Unicorn cd last year (anyone want some second-hand albums – just kidding wouldn’t part with those and I still enjoy playing vinyl).
Finally a big hello to everyone who knows me.

Name: Pat Martin E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Anyone out there interested in finding out about the 'Legendary Shed Sessions' probably some of the best Unicorn stuff.Never been released but loved by a select few that have heard them.Just checking for any reaction-may put some samples on this site,theres some great songs and performances -all recorded in the Shed Studio where Unicorn rehearsed from 63 to 78-some even recorded outside in the garden (complete with birdies singing along)Working title for the thirteen best tracks is 'Bakers Dozen The Shed Studio Sessions.'If you like Unicorn you'll love this.

Especially "Open Books", "Rainy Season", "Canada's

And for those of you in the Austin, TX, USA, area,
radio station KGSR (107.1FM)has begun playing Unicorn.
Just last week they played the original version of "No

Kenny Baker single "Whatever money can
buy/Walking in the night" (Logo records,
GO 357, (P) 1979) in the discography.
Why not try to arrange a CD copy of the
Shed sessions? (And maybe throw in some
extra tracks, like singles' B-sides and
old acetates). I would surely be willing
to pay £ 15 for such a CD.

Name: pat martin. E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Not out of the realms of possibility ,Eric.It would be nice to get some feedback from people -if they think its worth doing ? I think the Shed stuff is the best we've done.It was recorded in the Shed Studio at my Dads house in Send.We just learnt the songs and played them straight away-no rehearsing the life out of them.We recorded vocals in the garden(Heathrow Flight Path permitting) and used my kitchen too(lots of ceramic tiles gave an interesting echo)I could go on and on-so let me know of any interest.

Name: Carol Pyle E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I understand that Pat Martin and Ken Baker have
been playing gigs together with various
folks in the Guildford/Farnham area. Pete Perryer
also plays at times, although I'm not sure if it's
with the same band. So if you have 3 out of 4 Unicorn members playing and singing, doesn't it make sense
that they should do some Unicorn material?
Like maybe some from the Shed Sessions - which
incidentally might build a support base for having
a CD released? Or how about some of their other songs
folks would still like to hear? I've been privileged
to hear Pete (on cassette) and Pat (on CD) recently
and their voices have only improved with the years.
Also, a mailing list for Unicorn news would
be nice - if it's not too difficult or expensive to

Name: Jon Van Horn E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hi Pat Ken and Pete,
I know you already know how brilliant a band I feel Unicorn were/are, (one of the all time best!) and I just want to reiterate what others have said: the Shed Sessions are some of their finest music, annd sounds as if it was recorded yesterday! (Quality original music never goes out of style, and kudos to Brian Robinson for the resurrection of the tapes) and it would just be a damned shame not to see it released in one way or another, whether through the usual channels or simply on this site.
I want to suggest that any fans out there copy the link to this site and send it to their friends, if you haven't already. And if your friends like it, tell 'em to pass the link to their friends as well. And if anyone out there has any suggestions of how to stir up some interest in Unicorn, please post it here!
best of luck, and keep the faith...

Name: Sue Patterson E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I totally agree with everyone that the shed tapes are some of the best Unicorn songs and most definitely should be released on cd. I want to thank Todd again for keeping the website going, I visit it regularly and I love the new pictures of the group , especially the really young ones, it certainly takes me back a few years. I shall certainly keep trying to pass on the web site to friends, I've bought plenty of best of cd's to give to my friends. There are now plenty of Texans getting into the groove!! I have an old Unicorn tee shirt, back from the U.S.A tour, which I wonder if we could make new copies from it , if anyone is interested? Let me know. Anyway keep up the good work, I shall always be singing along to Unicorn and I hope others will follow.

Thanks for visiting...please sign the guest too
I heard a "rumor" that Ken, Pat and Pete have gotten together and been practicing some of their songs.
Can we expect a Unicorn reunion tour in 2001?
I sure hope so!!!!!!
Don't forget...Christmas is just around the corner.
"Best of Unicorn" CDs make great stocking stuffers
The gift that keeps on giving!!!!
Take care everyone

Name: Jenny McAllen E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Pete Perrier! Met him at Ockham in about 1966 when they were playing at the village hall, with Dave McGregor. I was staying with Jackie Helm (Meech) and that was how it all began.
I met Pete recently in town and we chatted more than we ever did in those early days.
He was shall I say, my idol, and to find the words to speak when he was around - well!!!! Pete - did you ever know?
Crazy days, fantastic music and the memories come flooding back- The Late Edition, The Late, The Late Elite Package and Lunar Two.
Sadly, I lost touch after Trevor left the band but I am so glad you put this site together. I wont ever lose touch again. Keep up the good work.

Unicorn Reunited bash today at Pat's house. They're performing some Unicorn tunes for David DiSanzo of
EMI/Capitol Records. Let's hope this stirs a record
company to some action!

It was great to meet other friends and fans of the band and a warm welcome was given to David DiSanzo (visiting from somewhere in the Colonies) who ATE MY PIZZA. Despite that he was a really cool guy and we need more like him in the music industry.
I understand there where a couple of bootleggers there - a video? A recording?? Naaaaah - it can't be true.
Jon and Todd - where were you??? See you next time!

Who would have thought a few days after signing the guest book for the first time I would be sitting in a room listening to the members of Unicorn playing and singing like they used to all those years ago.
What a privilege. Thank you so, so much!

My brother Pete Perryer said that everyone had a fantastic time and they didn't want it to end. It must have been tremendous listening to all those songs again, I just hope that I get to see the video and hear the tape at some time in the future. Thanks to Pat and Shirley for making this possible at their home and thanks to Dave for being such a great fan of Unicorn, I hope his trip back to the States was a safe one! Maybe I'll be in England for the next Unicorn get together! Keep playing Pat , Pete and Ken, we all love you. Lots of love Sue Patterson

The reunion gig was AMAZING! I will make copies for anyone who wants one. The band had so much fun they did not want to quit. They received a great reception from their friends, likely the nicest people anyone could ever hope to meet. Thanks, everyone for making me feel so welcome and at home. And, Pat, thanks especially for hanging with me all week! I had a blast, and those songs from all those old cassettes ..... I am still reeling....... You guys are the best.

Name: Erik Low E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hallo everyone,
There's a great review of The Best Of Unicorn CD in the latest issue of Record Collector. Written by Daryl Easlea,here it is (the transcript is correct, although
a couple of the sentences don't make sense):
Unicorn were another one of those groups,who, despite
having celebrity patronage and an enormous following in
the US, couldn't achieve domestic commercial success for
love nor money.
They supported the likes of Fleetwood Mac and Chicago.They
backed Kate Bush on her earliest demos, and one Ken Baker,
their drummer,vocalist and songwriter,composition ´No way
out of here´, was covered by David Gilmour on his first
solo album, from 1978. Of course, not everything is judgded
by financial rewards,but when you hear the quality of the
songs,you wonder why groups such as Supertramp made it and
Unicorn were relegated to the dump-bin of history.
After a debut album on Transatlantic in the early 70s, they
had the fortune of playing a friend's wedding reception in
1973.Gilmour,always one with an ear to the ground for talent,was present.He signed them to Pink Floyd's management
,got them a deal with Capitol in America and Charisma in the
UK and,in 1974,produced Blue Pine Trees- complete with
obligatory Hipgnosis sleeve - an album of melodic rock,which
reached no. 129 in the US.
Although Gilmour hangs over the proceedings - the slide on
´Just Wanna Hold You´ from 1974 is very much a dry-run for
the following year's ´Wish You Were Here´ - this collection
of their three mid-70s albums prove that they were much more
than just a band with a celebrity producer.
It's dated,of course,but when you see Toploader and Train
riding high in the charts,perhaps the time is right to sniff
out this collection and hear how it should be done. For
collectors of Floyd-associated ephemera and lovers of
The Best of Unicorn might well surprise a few.

Name: Brian Robinson E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Thanks Daryl - but Ken (as far as I know) never played drums and Pete was the main man on vocals whilst playing his positive, sometimes aggressive, but always musically sympathetic drum lines. Pete's songwriting has yet to be discovered (I'm working on it!)
All the band members contributed 25% each, including Kevin Smith, who doesn't seem to have the "fan base" of the other guys. As a guitarist I can 'review' his brilliant input and say that Unicorn could never have been "Unicorn" without him. I know that Pat, Ken and Pete would agree with me. As a guitarist I'm sure Dave Gilmour would have "heard" Kevin's guitar before he listened to the band at that fateful wedding reception.
It's a shame Kevin is not in touch with the rest of the band, who will have missed him at their reunion gig.
Anyone who knows his whereabouts, please get in touch. There's a huge reward!

I hope you have a great trip and time over in Britain and meet all kinds of wonderful people. As I'd said, if you'd care for

But really, I'd be glad to cat -

Name: chris guest E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: This site is a too-well-kept secret! Just found it via google (last time I tried it all I got was a Japanese rock group - not a tribute band, unfortunately).
Via that Les Davis (you know who I mean, Pat) I learnt a little about Pat's 'secret' past. I started investigatng and managed to find the LPs at a second-hand shop. I really liked the music and so, having missed them the first time round (despite being from Woking), I became a bit of a fan.
It was a real treat to meet and chat with Ken when he played with Pat & Fiveplay at Tunsgate in Guildford, last year. It was a pleasure to be able to tell Ken how highly I think of his songwriting - even though I was 'new' to them (if you see what I mean).
Of course I did the 'fan' thing and got them to sign my new copy of 'The Best Of . .' CD.
So, a big yes vote of interest in the 'Shed' recordings and to a further CD release.
Some kind of further reunion gig would be a must to attend. How about at The Star in Guildford, or maybe the Lancaster Hall, Send? Keep it going lads!

I just upgraded Pat's computer. Too bad I can't upgrade him or his terrible jokes. Did you realise that his hero is James Jamerson of Motown fame and that he owns a limited edition re-issue of THAT bass guitar? The only regret Pat has is that he wasn't born BLACK.
Pat plays tasteful guitar, always "in tune", and I tell him that his Irish forefathers would have been proud of him.
I've just upgraded my studio and my concensus reference material was from the "Shed Sessions". I'm still impressed with the band and their songwriter. Like me they were at least thirty years ahead of the 'quick thief' - Time!
Todd, you're a star.

Brilliant. It is also great to hear that the band got together last year and performed some of their songs - did they play Disco Dancer? - now that
is one epic tune. Lets just hope they go public next time - a pub gig or something, so that I may finally realise a dream of seeing Unicorn. Keep the website going, Best Regards, Andrew.

I kind of got into them after I heard the track There's No Way Out Of Here on Dave Gilmours first solo album although I was aware of the name. I am currently putting together a Classic Rock radio station called CLASSIC ROCK RADIO The station will launch sometime in March or April 2003.It will be a national station broadcast across the UK on the Sky Digital Network and internationally on the world wide web. I will be presenting a programme called ROCKAHEAD and I will more than likely play tracks by Unicorn on there. I won't be playing their stuff every week of course but they will certainly get a lot more attention than they have in the past. I certainly think that there is a small but devoted market for their music and as such will be happy to play it on my programme

When is someone going to do something with "The Backing Track"? It didn't make it to the "Shed Sessions" C.D., although it shone like a little star.
Ask Todd or Pat what I mean. It sounds like Kevin Smith and the band at their best.
We just need to pursuade Ken to write some lyrics and Pete to sing them. I'd be happy to assist Mad Dog and Norman Whapshott with the Production and Engineering :0)

I've always been aware of the music
but only a couple of years ago Pat press ganged
me into buying a CD from him, just after the rights
were released & it was rather smart
Pat is my uncle, I think, during the band's hey-day
I was running around playing action man or footie
(actually we were probably being mean to Joanne;-)
Joanne was a bridesmaid at my wedding in 199....something
I seem to have a distant memory of the boys staying at our house when gigging near us in Sussex. Apple pie all round
I think it was!!
this is a great site & although im too young to remember
the early stuff, its a great read
best regards to you all

that backing track Is really fine indeed, and deserves the full Unicorn treatment! Apparently none of the boys can remember how it went, but it's great fun to listen to in the car and make up yer own daft melody and lyrics...I'm sure the guys could write a melody line and some new lyrics...if Ken isn't interested (c'mon Ken!) as I assume he wrote the music (?), then i'm sure that the author of the (in)famous song "Family tree" could do it! Provided he was given the right nourishment of course! (6 pints should do it...eh, Pat?)

Anybody who loves Unicorn (That's why you're looking at this site, right?) needs this CD! Naturally, "Best of..." is a must, too. I'm looking forward to the rest of the Unicorn catalog being released on CD. "Blue Pine Trees" (the only Unicorn LP I ever managed to dig up) is one of the few reasons I still have a working turntable!

I may be new to this magnificent Todd Glenn website but I am a long-time fan of Unicorn; although here in the States we heard precious little of them on radio in their heydey. I am now trying to make amends for that as I am the host of a Saturday morning public radio show in Boston, MA on Folk Radio, WUMB 91.9FM from 7-11am EST. The show is called Highway 61 Revisited and is a fond and respectful look back at some of the wonderful US and UK folk and folk-rock of the 60's and 70's. Come check us out as we stream live 24/7/365 via the Internet at www.wumb.org . Always happy to play Unicorn. These guys have always been among my favorites and I am thrilled to be in touch with them and do my part to make their music available again. Cheers! Barnes Newberry

Unicorn has played 2 small reunion gigs and I was fortunate enough to be present during one of them. I met Pat, Pete and Ken, and I have heard from Kevin. The Shed Sessions CD was released after 20+ years and is now for sale on this site.

I've listened to both the Shed Studio Sessions and the surprise extra CD you enclosed with it (thanks buddy) and found this band to be very easy to listen to. I was reminded mostly of Crosby, Stills, and Nash -with a small taste of The Allman Brothers and maybe just a tiny bit of Simon and Garfunkle flavor mixed in (regarding that comparison to S&G I think it was a slight similarity of the voice to Paul Simon that I was hearing rather than style of music -and that's just my opinion). I LIKE 'em and surprised I never heard more about them back in the day. It's good this stuff is getting a second wind or resurrected here on your site. It's made a Unicorn fan out of me :-).
From one guy with two 1st names to another, Thanks! And keep up the good work...

The fans were saying things like "is Unicorn having a renaissance ?". Just a little publicity can get quite a response it seems !

There will never be music of this quality made again and we are lucky to still be able to hear it. Anyone who has a passion for British bands such as Unicorn please feel free to write me. Rob

I was a small (very small) town disc jockey in North Carolina when their records came out and we used to get promo copies of all the Capitol Records material. When "Blue Pine Trees" came out I about wore the grooves off of it playing cuts like "Electric Night". Unicorn reminds me of The Byrds, in that they combined great songs and musicianship in a way that you can listen to them now and they don't sound dated. Thanks to Todd for helping us reconnect with a terrific memory and outstanding group.

If I were cast away on a desert island and could only take 10 albums with me - one of them would definitely be "Blue Pine Trees" or "Too Many Crooks" - who am I kidding? I'd take both of them.

Not only do I now posess my treasured Vinyl and 'The Best Of' CD, which gave me cristal clear recordings of all my fave tracks, but I now have 'Uphill' (which I searched for in vain for years) and the amazing 'Shed'. I feel like I've known these songs all my life. No one has a voice like Pete (Ken comes close), no-one plays bass like Pat. Add some excellent guitar from Kevin and there you have it!
The Unicorn from which they take their name was a myth, but these guys are real, immortal for their music and that timeless sound.
The world is a better place for Unicorn. Let's hear it for the boys!

Name: Mark Miller E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I bought what was known as "Unicorn 2" in the states in 1976. In the UK, I understand it was called "Too Many Crooks". I especially liked the songs "He's Got Pride" and "Keep On Going" where the former reminded me of the Stones in a country groove (Dead Flowers, Honky Tonk Women, et.al.) and the latter had that guitar hook that sort of sounded like Memphis soul meets LA country rock. I later bought "Blue Pine Trees" and "one More Tomorrow", but "2" is my favorite of the three. I've only heard snippets of "Uphill All The Way", which I may order some day. Your greatest hits compilation would have been better if you included "Keep On Going". I wish my radio station (WXRT in Chicago) would play your version "There's No Way Out Of Here" or at least acknowledge the original performer and writer when they play David Gilmour's version.

When I was resident in the UK, up to '82, was in Acton based band "Heroes" (with Pete Townshend's younger brother Paul on guitar) and found an old tape the other evening in some packing cases-not bad after about 30 years!

I've heard so many stories of your kindness and humor, as well as quite a few tales of adventure (and misadventure!) from Pat, that I almost feel I'd known you. That probably also comes from having your voice running through my head for the last 30 years. And I know it'll be there for the next 30 as well.

Where the hell am I going to find a drummer who knows what I'm going to play on my bass before I do ?
Where am I going to find a drummer who doesn't need two sticks to play 16's on the hi hat and can sing with all his heart and soul at the same time ?
Where is Ken going to find someone who can sing his songs with as much thought,love and enthusiasm as if you wrote them yourself ?
I definitely ain't going to find someone who can make me laugh until my body aches like you could.
I'll never find someone who can't tell a lie or even exaggerate.
Pete,you had more talent in your little finger than I have in my entire body.This is the end of a bloody good rhythm section that played together for the best part of fifteen years.
Thank God we have some of that talent captured on CD for ever,so that we can keep reminding ourselves how special you were.
You sure you're alright with just three quarters of that seat Pete !!!!
Peace and love. There's no mine,there's no yours................'ere who knicked me bike ?
The boys from Wharf Lane did good.
Proud to have been the bassist in Unicorn.

My Birthday's coming up this week and usually Pete would sing Happy Birthday to me and make me laugh. He was always my idol growing up, and I just wasn't ready for him to be taken quite yet. I have to believe that he's singing away again,chatting up all the pretty angels and making everyone feel at ease, with his wonderful smile lighting up the room. I would like to thank all the good friends and family that came to the funeral, it really was an incredible day that poured forth love from all walks of life. Pete had touched so many lives and he will live always in my heart. I miss you Pete so very much, it's going to take a very long time for the pain to ease up. I think of you all the time and I listen to your wonderful music every day. All my love, Sister Sue xxx

I first heard Blue Pine Trees in '74 when I was 15. I had an older brother who worked in a hi-fi shop and introduced me to a whole lot of great music that I would never have discovered myself. Unicorn stood out for me alongside the other greats - Eagles and Steely Dan. Years later I was able to replace cassettes/LPs of those two bands with crisp, clear CDs. But my literally worn out Unicorn tape couldn't be replaced - no music shop had ever heard of the band or could find them in any back catalogues. The Blue Pine Trees and Too Many Crooks albums have haunted me for the last ten years as I feared I would never hear them again. Imagine my joy at finding through this site that the music still lives on - even better than before (actually my partner foun

Intuitively,Pat knew how to bring out the best in this tune with his impressive gloomy bass lines,that amazingly captured the song's restless atmosphere,that might be called a point of impasse...
Great achievement!...to state the obvious...need I say more??

Are you Pete Perryer's sister?? I'm amazed 'bout the merging of true and perfect feelings of "brother and sister". I have found in many places, brothers and sisters competing between themselves.It's a process for most of us, and it can be pretty excruciating.
By being vocal and supportive about Pete,everything you've said about him done nothing so much as emphasize how much you loved him.
There is no cure for love lost, but what he left behind is his gift to you and to us.

Stuart Mathis ? I remember, up at the top of the school field, Stuart and Trevor Grossmith beat me up. I tell you ! they were just lucky I wasn't in one of my aggressive moods.

Just love scrolling down and reading the messages from all the many friends and Unicorn avids that pop up...
Please keep writing everyone...... (yes Ken I remember Stuart Mathis... also remember the 'top of the field' at St Bedes!.....)
Listening to music from Unicorn holds special memories and thoughts for all of us...
SO let's keep playing, listening and enjoying....I know I will..
PS What about 'Songs from the Family Tree' (The Late) then?..... Terrific! "Go Pat"!.......

Name: Dave DiSanzo E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Hey Everyone,
I was listening to Unicorn last night on my evening commute out of the New York City concrete jungle. For some reason it was "Lenny Dee" and "The Sweeter Life" that I just could not stop playing over and over for the entire hour long journey. The latter is just such a beautiful tune in every way. It's so ..unicorn. "Lenny Dee" just cracks me up and I love the way that it's sung. The music is so serious and dark yet knowing the story behind the song I can't help but cracking up every time I hear it.
"Their faces turned to me, twisted in agony!" ..... "No one even mentioned Lenny Deeeee!" Such great stuff. I could just see Ken (Ken, correct me if I'm wrong) being turned off by the bandwagon nature of group adulation and really imposing the music of Lenny Dee onto a crowd of hipsters.
I know the feeling. I was often apt to insert a Carpenters tune in the midst of a set of party music when I used to DJ. But hey, I love the Carpenters so why not? You'd actually be surprised how well "Superstar" works in that situation! At least it forces people to pay attention!
Anyway, I do thank God for the music of Unicorn.
Listening now to The Late. Anyone reading this and remotely interested in Unicorn should get this new release. "Working Man" is a 60's CLASSIC.
Best to All Reading!

I know it is in a couple of days but didn't want to miss it - as if we would ! Still can't believe he has gone when we are still here & thankfully our best friend Pat & special friend Ken.
Still feels so bad about Pete not being here & what he could be singing - thank goodness we have him on recordings forever. We will always love you Pete - I hope he knows that
We would also like to say how much we love 'Lenny Dee' on the Anthology & especially knowing the story behind the song !!& probably being there !

I still just can't believe you are no longer here with us Pete, I listen to your beautiful voice and see your smiling face in my mind. I just miss you so very much, at times the pain is so hard to endure, but then I thank God that I have your voice forever to listen to and think how fortunate we all are to hear the wonderful music of Unicorn. Today I sat in my little wood and looked at the tree that Pete loved so much when he came to Texas, and I could feel you looking down and smiling. I love you so much Pete and miss you so!

Always thinking about you and telling all those great stories about you.I'm still playing that bass and I've played with some real good drummers but none give me that buzz I always got playing with you.I wish I hadn't taken it for granted how fantastic a singer you were too,I just expected everyone to sing with so much feeling,boy did I get a shock.I'm so glad we've got the Unicorn CD's to listen to and remind us of how wonderful a drummer,singer and person you were.Who'd have thought that Wharf Lane,Send would provide such a good rhythm section ? maybe it was something to do with those throbbing diesel trucks going to and from Wintons yard.

Name: Brian Robinson E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: I only met Pete Perryer twice, once at a Pat Martin gig at the 'Three Lions' in Godalming and again at the first Unicorn Reunion. He was a completely open book, his smile and his faith radiated like a beacon. There was something about him that made me feel as though I'd known him for ages.
In a way, I had. When I was remastering the Shed Sessions I was listening to every detail of every track of 40+ songs over and over again. I knew I was listening to a master
class in drumming, bass playing and song-writing, and a pretty stunning guitarist as well.
One of the things I had to do was erase tape noise, burps, farts, laughter (well, nearly all the laughter), mic stands being kicked, raucous remarks - and Pete Perryer's hand-claps on the backing vocals overdub tracks. Pete REALLY enjoyed doing backing vocals - I guess he could savour singing without part of his brain having to do drums too. I erased several hundred of these whilst cleaning up the recordings, and I knew the sound of Pete's hand-claps. In fact, I knew what they looked like too, in my sound editing software.
Pat invited me to the Three Lions gig and told me that Pete might turn up. There was quite a crowd and after the fourth number, in the middle of some enthusiastic applause, I heard THAT hand-clap. I 'homed in' on Pete and he laughed when I told him how I knew he'd arrived. He bought me a beer too, but that's not why I think he was one of the nicest people I've ever met, and one of the most talented.
Rock on Pete, wherever you are. When I get 'there' too, will you show me how you got that groove in 'Sitting In Line'? I'll get you a beer.

It was a wonderful suprise to see all the new guestbook entries since my last visit. Thanks to everyone who has visited & signed.
I was lucky enough to meet Pete during my 2002 visit & hear the band play together for possibly the last time. Even the Pink Bear was there!
I remember Pete as always smiling whenever I saw him.
I have fond memories of an afternoon spent at Pete's apartment drinking tea & listening to music. It was clear to see why Pete is loved & missed by so many.

He was always an extrovert but when he became a Christian in 1990 he was ......well as you can see from the photographs, just about the most alive person you ever did see !
I love the fact that someone enjoys the humour of a song like Lenny Dee(thanks Dave). I was speaking to Alec on the phone recently and we got talking about Bullseye Bill. That's another joke that passed for a song.

You always could make me laugh so hard. It's been a hard year for me medically, but I know that you were keeping me safe through all the surgery and I thank you for being my guardian angel. I know it was you that helped me come through it all. I love you so much Pete, I just wish we could chat one more time. Keep smiling Pete, lots of love Your sweet sister Sue.

Name: Norman Whapshott E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: Dancing in t’Street
Some of the more sedentary readers of this list might, like me, have seen in the new year from the sofa while watching the TV.
Those doing this in Britain were probably watching the Jools Holland new year show. It is always the best bet. Some of the featured contemporary singers and bands are a bit perplexing but there is always the playing of the first class house band, the Rhythm and Blue Orchestra, to enjoy. The line up for the show always includes a veteran ‘legend’ act and this year it was Martha and the Vandellas. They gave us their biggest hits: Jimmy Mac, Heatwave and, just after midnight, Dancing in the Street.
I wonder if I was the only one to mentally substitute the northern English locations of Accrington Stanley and Crewe for two of the American cities from Martha’s version.
Pete invariably made this change when he sang the song in the days of the Late and Late Edition.
(I particularly remember him doing so on a gig in Romford. The show had several bands of a similar status performing on a notably wide stage. It may also have been the occasion of a fan club coach trip organised by Mr Martin and there may have been a second show somewhere else that evening but I cannot now be sure.)
It was a daft joke but a good one and remembering it gave me the first laugh of 2009.
Happy New Year

I suppose it's worth noting that I was able to hear it in the first place by downloading it for free but am still gonna buy the real one... These things work out sometimes... Take care.

Name: Pat Martin Comments: I'm sad to announce the passing of Ricky Hopper.We first met him when he was a plugger at Transatlantic Records back in 1971.He loved Unicorn and our first single 'P.F.Sloane' and really put his heart into plugging it.One of his succeses was getting it played on Alan'Fluff'Freemans 'Pick Of The Pops' on prime time BBC Radio.Fluff even predicted Unicorn had a great future and I nearly bought that house I promised my Mum when I got famous.
Ricky left Transatlantic and we really noticed the difference.In 1972/3 he phoned me up to ask if Unicorn would play at his wedding for free,with the promise that there would be lots of famous people there and that we might benefit from it.We took that with a pinch of salt but figured we owed him a favour.There were several famous people there,one being David Gilmour who was just reaping the success of Dark Side Of The Moon.He had a jam with us at the end and asked me for a phone number.A few days later he phoned me up and offered us some free time in the studio he had just had installed in his Essex home.He went on to produce three albums for us and his manager became our manager too.
Ricky was always talking about a young female singer songwriter who was the sister of a friend he went to Cambridge with.He asked David Gilmour to listen to her and David asked Pete Perryer and I to play on her first recording sessions in his home studio.That female singer songwriter was Kate Bush.David Gilmour is always credited with discovering Kate but it was Ricky Hopper.
His funeral will be held at Haycombe Cemetary & Cremitorium,Whiteway Road,Bath.BA2 2RQ. on Thursday 25 June at Noon

Name: Dave DiSanzo E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: I was just thinking about this site this morning wondering if it was about 8 years old and low and behold it just turned 9. Time flies. Nearly a decade of having this site and forum for all things Unicorn - Todd you've done a great job. I remember when Todd and I had a brief conversation one day about how there needs to be a Unicorn web site. The next day he called me and sent me the link and asked what I thought! I was duly impressed and still am.
I spent the morning today listening to Unicorn tracks, they never lose their freshness. Ever. I listen to Unicorn more than any other artist. The artistry astounds me more the more I listen. Thanks again Todd and thanks to Pete, Pat, Ken, and all the others that were involved in getting this music recorded in the first place....and especially Pat for keeping the Unicorn archived material safe and sound throughout the decades so that we were all able to benefit in recent years with the releases of the Shed Sessions, The Late acetates, The Anthology, and other goodies... Little did I know ten years ago how much great Unicorn music had yet make it to my ears....
So here's to the 1st 9 years! Let's see what we can accomplish in the next 9!
...perhaps a Unicorn convention!

Name: Alan Pettit E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Call it nostalgia or whatever, but I recently googled Unicorn and came up with this site. I used to be the bass player/vocalist in the Elite, with Kevin Smith and Chris Harding. There's even a photo of us as 'The Late/Elite Package 1966' - I'm the nerd on right next to Pat Martin. I lost touch with everyone around '67 or '68.
I felt a real lump in my throat when I heard that Pete had passed away. I know it's more than 40 years since I saw him but it was still very sad.
I still play and listen to music so I guess it never leaves you. I even own a couple of Unicorn albums - on vinyl of course!
It seems that the Unicorn legend still lives on so congratulations to you all on your legacy.

Kevin is a great guitarist (but you knew that) and Francis is a talented musician. There - I've jammed with all of them now!

I now live in the Oriental Republic of Uruguay and was hugely disappointed to find that the various commercial download sites refuse to download music to the ROU... perhaps the MAN wishes to encourage bit torrenting?

Name: John Kerans E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: "Unicorn" were a superb band who got nowhere ; The story of many other great Bands ("Patto" in particular.)
I never got to see them live for a variety of arcane reasons but thought them superb from the continuous playing of the 3 albums.
I recently heard " Holland" on BBC at some ridiculous hour on the radio, brought out the 3 albums and have started playing them again to my wife's chagrin and to my son's delight!
Not a duff track in sight/hearing and many ("He's got pride;" The Night;" "Disco Dancer") worthy of multiple playing and appreciation.
I am 65 with GOOD HEARING(!) and still appreciate good records and bands.

I also did a taped interview the next day with Ken and Pete. It's just wonderful to find you guys...

May the positive vibes of his singing continue, they will in my house until I go to the same place. Power to Unicorn.

That was a few days ago on the 6th. Unfortunately the huge fire in Bastrop started on the 4th. September and I had to flee our home of twenty three years, without hardly a thing to my name. Our house burnt down to the ground, along with all it's contents, on the anniversary of Pete's passing. I have lost all my Unicorn cds. albums, cds. of Pete's songs he wrote and most special of all, his guitar and bible. I shall find a new home, but I can never replace all the things that were most precious to me. I should be feeling so glad that Jake and I are alive, but at this point in time I just feel so sad that I have lost all the photos, films and anything else I ever had related to my wonderful brother Pete. I miss you even more every Pete and I wonder when the Uphill Struggle will end! For sure I will never Give up Trying. I love you Pete, love Sister Sue

God bless Sue!!! If it gets hard my advice- sit down and listen to the man singing "Dont Ever Give Up Trying"(if you've got it that is).
When we were playing darts and it wasn't going so well Pete used to say "It's a good game to win". Why don't I just let him have the last word?

Name: Lanark McVie E-mail address: email@example.com Comments: I see that some wee lassie (with a BIG voice) has done a cover of Jimmy Webb's "P F Sloan" recently. My big brother had the first Unicorn album (I possess his copy now - a bit of well-worn vinyl). I listened to this album a lot when I was growing up, I loved the sound. Nice acoustic guitars, mandolins and tasteful electric licks. Lovely balance. Beautiful vocal harmonies. I learned to play guitar, strumming along to some of the more straightforward stuff on "Uphill All The Way".
I'm glad "P F Sloan" is on the airwaves again, it is one of the most beautiful songs I ever heard in my life. It has stayed with me for forty years and frankly the Unicorn version simply cascades all over the new cover. I hope the new exposure shines a light on Unicorns work at some point.

I discovered this band in the early 70s and their music formed the pre-cursor of my liking of other bands like CSNY and America. It took me a long time to get their music digitally but it was worth it! I've never forgotten their influence on me during those formative years - I'm now 58! Rumer has just recorded PF Sloan but I knew it with them first! Thanks Boys!

I know he is always there in my heart and I listen to his beautiful voice every single day! Unicorn are such a big part of my life and I have such fond memories of going to those fantastic gigs all over England in the 70's. I know Pete is singing up a storm in Heaven! I love and miss you so Pete, your sweet sister Sue!

I used to give myself a hard time that I kept forgetting to check the website or leave a message for Pete in septmeber. Then I realized without thinking about it I was avoiding it. Well then here a new year message. It's just a great song Pete wrote once, a taste of old Unicorn humour,I was thinking of the other day..........."Woke up this morning, blues ran all over my toast" ( Pete hated blue songs)..........Timeless

The evening is red the sheep will be pleased
The folk are inside and eating their teas
There's tea in the pot and milk in the cow
Guess we all get those days when it pays not to speak
But to keep out of sight and to stay 'neath my sheets
In the safety of sleep, in the safety of sleep.
See you in 6 months !

thanks so much for your support on saturday at the unicorn reunion gig in wales! jackie has just put some pics on facebook.
It was such an honour for me to be asked to play guitar by pat and ken, and was a very special day.

Name: Jill E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Spent a fabulous day last Saturday 10th August at the Croissant Neuf Summer Party (yes it was 'croissant'!)
We were treated to a splendid Unicorn performance (the first since around 35 years!!), who offered up a small selection of their excellent compositions. Ken and Pat were amazing as you would expect and they were joined by the wonderful Nick Powell (on guitar) and the awesome Wayne Riches (drums). Needless to say we missed our lovely Pete, but sure he would have loved the day too. It was fabulous that Dave and Jackie were able to make it and Helen (Nick's girlfriend). Totally amazing too was the fact that we had Todd with us! Alec even came along to make sure the sounds were good. Wayne also brought along two of his band members from Unsung Lilly.
Looking forward to our next treat (how about it chaps?)
Thanks once again from an old fan x x x x

I see your lovely smile when I think of you and I know you are singing for joy in Heaven. Now you have our sweet brother Robbie and lovely sister Brenda joining you in the choir up there! So many angels from the Perryer clan! I'll never stop missing you and I love you so! Your sweet sister Sue!
