Thanks to this week’s Ashes Ken on bass, Brian on drums, Eddie on harmonica and Tom on percussion.
Thanks to those who lead on some of the numbers – usual suspects – Les B, Brendan, Mark and Gillian were Sonny and Cher with I Got You Babe, Mark tried a solo of The Tide is High / Message to Rudi worked Ok-ish until the end where he needed to sing both parts. Eddie, Joe, Donna and Dave with Blue Moon / Stormy Weather, Eric and Brendan with Chantilly Lace, Joy, Trevor.
Shortened STARTME but we enjoyed
- Joe and Dave with Put Your Head On My Shoulder, which I believe is a Paul Anka song from 1959.
- Les B gave us his latest Jim Reeves' number You Kept Me Awake Last Night – a sad song about a steak and kidney pie that gave him indigestion. The record was a “B” side to Angels Don’t Lie and released posthumously in 1970.
Next week it is the Christmas Party special. Dress up posh. I don’t know if someone may be issuing a set list, but I will pass on when and if received.
The first session of the New Year on 2nd January will be the two Grahams, so we look forward to a raft of new songs.
