Anyway, thanks to both Graham’s, for leading, for choosing a great selection of tunes and, of course, for all the scrolling.
Reduced accompaniment, but thanks for making some noise to Tom on drums, Eddie on harmonica and Brian on bass.
Thanks to those who volunteered to lead on some of the numbers – Les B, Joe, Eddie, Trevor, Dave D, Anne, all the girls – Margo, Jo, Anne and Betty on Shirley Bassey’s Kiss Me Honey Honey and also Daisy Bell and I think I did one.
Those who were absent missed out on an extended STARTIME. Thanks to...
- Don who gave us Tom Jones 1966 No 1 Green Green Grass of Home
- Les B who sang Skeeter Davis’ The End of the World. This song was a hit in 1962 and was produced by Chet Atkins and featured Floyd Cramer.
- Dave D gave us Bob Dylan’s To Make You Feel My Love (1997). The song has been recorded by several including Billy Joel and Garth Brooks, the most recent hit was by Adele from her 19 album (2008)
- Joe (in ¾ time) waltzed through Vaya Con Dios (May God Go With You), literally Go With God (Spanish). This was a hit for Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1963.
