Thanks to this week’s Ashes, Brian on bass, Brendan on drums and Tom on percussion. Yes, you were missed Eddie. Thanks also to our soloists on many of the numbers – Les B, Steve G, Dave D, Tommy, Graham P, Both Brian’s, Mark, Brendan, Trevor, Al and Joy and Carole.
Good and varied STARTIME, thanks to
- Les B who gave us Six Days On The Road, made famous by Dave Dudley, but also recorded by many country stars.
- Trevor gave us a choice and was persuaded to do two numbers.
- Oh You New York Girls (Can’t You Dance The Polka), a traditional sea shanty song, recorded by many folk groups including Steeleye Span and more recently BellowHead. Santy is probably Saint Anne, the patron saint of unmarried women.
- And then Father and Son by Cat Stevens (1970) from his Tea For The Tillerman album.
- Dave Davies accompanied by Graham Porter gave us Lou Reed’s Perfect Day. First released in 1972, featured on his Transformer album recorded following his break from Velvet Underground. A various artistes recording was made by the BBC in 1997 for Children in Need.
- Eunice, Diane, Donna and Joy gave us I’ll Tell Me Ma, sung by many, probably most famously by the Dubliners.
Thanks to Donna for this week’s cakes, delicious. Believe it’s Diana’ turn next !!!
