Good STARTIME again this week, so thanks to:
- Carole who gave us Kirsty MacColl’s There’s A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis. Kirsty’s first hit in 1981. The US version is called There’s A Guy Works Down The Truck Stop. Chips to them are crisps. Divided by a common language.
- Les B gave us another Jim Reeves song, I Missed Me, from his Distant Drums Album (1960). With 60 albums to his name, there’s always more where this came from, you’ll be pleased to learn.
- Trevor (accompanied by Paul) gave us Scottish Rock Band Del Amitri’s Nothing Ever Happens (1989), this reached no 11 in the UK charts in 1990.
- Rounded off by Al with Eric Clapton’s Before You Accuse Me (Take A Look At Yourself) , from Eric’s 1989 Journeyman album. This song had previously been recorded by Bo Diddley in 1957 and Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1968.
Next Week it’s the turn of Dave and Lee Davies. Set List later.
