Thanks to this week’s Ashes, Brian on drums, Tom on percussion, Ken on bass and Eddie on harmonica.
Thanks to those who lead on some of the numbers, Trevor did a great job when others didn’t – Les B, Mark, Gillian, Martin, Dave D, Joe, Donna, Bernard, Steve McG and finally Tom.
Excellent STARTIME this week, so it’s thanks to:
- Joe and Dave (again mainly Joe) – with If I Had My Life To Live Over, originally written in 1939, it has become a classic for many artists including Eddie Arnold, Doris Day, Foster and Allen and one Joe used, by Davey Arthur and the Fureys (1986).
- Les B kept our eyes dry this week and sang Harry Belafonte’s Island in the Sun, written and recorded by Harry in 1957 for the film of the same name.
- The Carole Belshaw Trio (Carole, Ken and Graham) gave us Fats Domino’s Blue Monday (1957), one of the earlier R&B songs to make Billboard’s Pop Charts.
- Mark sang Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me To The Moon. Written in 1954 the song was recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1964. A copy of the song was placed aboard the Apollo 10 mission, but was the first heard music on the moon when played by on a cassette recorder by Buzz Aldrin (1969).
Next week we have Dave and Lee Davies. Set list later.
This Thursday it’s Diane and Dave’s do at the Crown, New Springs..
