The Hugh Featherstone video channel at YouTube:

So far on the channel (as of July 2021) there are three types of videos, which I have named Series A, B and C:

"Series A" : A series with Hugh seated in a small studio, singing solo with guitar. Good sound and picture quality.

"Series B" : A mix of home studio and live performances. Varying quality.

"Series C" : Other types of videos, including Hugh playing in bands other than his own, or performing works by others.

All songs in "Series A" and "Series B", words and music by Hugh Featherstone.

Song titles marked * have not (yet) been released as recordings on disc.

See the songs page for further information about individual songs.

A number of rare "unofficial" or pirated recordings of Hugh's songs, mostly
from concerts, have been in circulation over the years. These include:

• The "Pierre le Suit Tape", a concert by Hugh's band Pierre le Suit at Reading University, early 1970s;

• The "Up Club Tape", recorded live at the Up Club, Bangor, North Wales in 1975;

• The "Best Foot Tape", a recording of the 1975 concert by Hugh's band Best Foot
at the Theatre Gwynedd, Bangor, plus some unreleased studio stuff;

• The "Anglesey Tape", recorded live at the Beaumont Arms, Anglesey, Wales in 1979;

• The "Yellow Tape", a demo of 5 songs produced by Gerd Fellner in 1985,
fattened up with a couple of pirated tracks;

• "Gam & Jam", a CD of the same material, but with some extra premixed songs from 1982;

• A lo-fi recording of one of Hugh's concerts with Red Shift in Erfurt, east Germany, winter 1995;

• The "Trans/At Demo", around 50 copies of a rare CD recording of 5 songs,
including two unpublished, with Hugh's band Trans/At;

• "Walls to Fall", a CD recorded live at the "Walls to Fall" event, Allianz Stiftungsforum, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin
in 2014, with 7 tracks by Hugh Featherstone & the FeatherTones, including the Walls to Fall theme song.
9 on the sub-prime – the new CD by
Hugh Featherstone & A Panel of Experts

10 April 2010  The first copies of 9 on the sub-prime, the new album
by Hugh Featherstone & A Panel of Experts, are now available.

Hugh describes the studio album as:

"Nine tasty tracks of intelligent and catchy acoustic and hot-wired, typically Featherstone songwriter-stuff for those who still have a shirt to lose. Smooth songs in a sharp package.

Slightly less "music for jumping off bridges to" this time out, I seem to have caught a little of the "hey ho, may as well look on the bright side" attitude currently going around. Could travel."
