A lot thinner on the ground this week, but it did not affect the enjoyment of the evening. Thanks to Trevor for leading, Steve G for scrolling and to both for producing an excellent selection of songs this week. No thigh scrolling this week, Diane’s away. Also we hope Eunice gets well soon. Both were missed.
Thanks to this week’s Ashes – Brendan on drums, Tom on percussion, Eddie on harmonica and Brian on bass.
Sorry the start was a little delayed for technical difficulties we managed to fuse the entire ring-main for a short period.
Thanks to all those who came up to the mic and lead the singing on some of the numbers – Les B, Joe, Mark, Dave D, Joy, Brendan, Ernie, Donna, Martin, Graham P, Betty, Steve G, Eddie, and a great 9 to 5 and Stormy Weather from Joy, Margo and Donna.
Superb STARTIME, so thanks to
- Joy accompanied by Graham with Fleetwood Mac’s Songbird, which featured the voice of Christine McVie (1977). The song was featured on Eva Cassidy’s posthumous no1 album also entitled Songbird (1998).
- Eddie sang Don Williams’ Amanda (Light of my Life)(1973) from his Come Early Morning album, also recorded by Waylon Jennings the following year as a single, which was no 1 on the Billboard Country Hits chart for several weeks.
- Les B gave us Jim Reeves’ Little Ole Dime. Originally released after his untimely death in 1964, on his Distant Drums album 1966, the record was re-mastered and released as a single in 1977.
- Trevor then sang Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right recorded in 1962 and then released on his Freewheelin’ album and again as a “B” side single in 1963. The “A” side was Blowin’ In The Wind.
Next week it’s the turn of Les B and Eunice. Set list later, but we have been warned this may be a Jim Reeves tribute. Jim was killed in a plane crash on 31 July 1964.
This Thursday it’s Diane and Dave’s night at The Crown. Diane’s away so it’s mainly Dave, but go anyway.
