Dave Waite & Marianne Segal

Dave Waite & Marianne SegalFrom: England

Before forming the legendary 70s UK folk rock band Jade, Dave Waite and Marian Segal formed a folk duo, well known on the live circuit of the mid to late 60s. Their music was a fusion of English and American contemporary folk artists like John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, The Mamas and The Papas, and Peter, Paul and Mary.

Marianne was going through archives for the re-issue of Jade’s Fly On Strangewings album, a number of tapes were uncovered containing recordings by Dave and Marianne recorded by the duo between 1968 and 1970. Upon further digging, three fully arranged and orchestrated tracks were discovered in the vaults of Jade producer Jon Miller. Along with the material collected from Marianne, an album was put together of previously unreleased material. In 2004, Lightning Tree issued Paper Flowers.

Whilst searching Marianne’s archives for the re-issue of Jade’s Fly On Strangewings album, a whole batch of tapes were uncovered that contained recordings by Dave and Marian recorded whilst they were a duo between early summer 1968 and the summer of 1970. Further searching revealed three fully arranged and orchestrated tracks in the vaults of Jade Producer Jon Miller. Together these tapes revealed a whole previously unreleased collection by Dave and Marian. This collection of songs was issued in 2004 by Lightning Tree under the title Paper Flowers and as such it is a glimpse at one of the great lost UK folk albums of the 1960s.
