Thanks to Dave and Lee for a great evening of entertainment – never quite finished Froggy Went Courting. Probably a U3A opener on Monday !! – looking forward to that. Thanks to the backing group of Tom on percussion, Brendan on drums, Eddie on harmonica and Ken and Brian on bass. Much appreciated as always. Thanks to the members who lead on some of the numbers – Les B; David S; Mark; Ernie; Carole; Anne; Eddie; Tom; Jo; Elaine; both Brian’s; Joe; Joy and Lee.
Eunice, Joy, Carole, Jackie and Gillian shared an itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny yellow polka dot bikini - now you’re sorry you didn’t come David Brindley !!!!
A very good STARTIME once again, so it’s thanks to
- Les B and Gillian for Faron Young’s Hello Walls (1961). The song was written by Willie Nelson, but I’ve only heard before on an album by Jim Reeves.
- Carole gave us Guns ‘n Roses’ Sweet Child o’ Mine (1987) from their Appetite for Destruction album. The song is their only US no 1 and reached no 6 in the UK charts.
- Dave D gave us Paul Anka’s Diana (1957). Canadian, Anka was only 16 at the time of the record being a hit.
- The Joe Balmer Trio gave us I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself A Letter, which was written in 1935, and has been recorded many times, particularly by Fats Waller and is a part of the Great American Songbook.
Next week it’s the turn of the two Grahams – set list later.
