Nice to see some members missing from the previous week, Ernie and Eunice back from the Western Front and Les B now one of the Jersey Boys.
Thanks to Brendan on drums, Eddie on harmonica, Tom on percussion and Brian on bass.
Thanks to our soloists this week – Les B; Ernie; Graham K; Trevor; Joe; David S; Eddie; Mark; Les H and Tom. Anne, Jackie, Margo, Diane, Donna, Eunice and Betty were persuaded to deal with the Suds in the Bucket, but unfortunately we only heard Dave. Slightly better when Eunice, Diane and Donna were some of the Seven Little Girls Sitting in the Back Seat.
A full and good STARTIME, thanks to
- Eddie who gave us Hank Williams’ I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry (1949). The song has been sung by many over the years, and Elvis introduced it as “the saddest song he’s ever heard”.
- Les B gave us a maths lesson with Hank Locklin’s Forty Nine, Fifty One (1965)
- Trevor gave us an excellent version of Lionel Richie’s Stuck On You (1984). He never chooses an easy one, does he?
- Les H was beaten up and battered round with the Traveling Wilbury’s Handle With Care (1988)
Next week, it looks like I’m helping Les H with the session. Set List later.
This Thursday evening it’s Diane and Dave’s session at the Crown, New Springs.
