Congratulations to Graham and Bridget on their anniversary, hope you had a nice meal out. Brand spanking new Wren kitchen, and they go for a 2 for £10. Safe journey to Lee, off to Canada, long way to go for a Pokeman. Hope Brian enjoyed his Christopher Tin concert. And sorry to learn that Les Harris is unwell, there has been a lot in the news about listeria in salad products. This is not a euphemism but please, “Wash Your Lettuce”.
Ashes this week were Ken alone on bass, Tom on percussion and cahone, and Eddie on harmonica. Many thanks. Thanks to our soloists this week, Joe, Mark, Ernie, David S, Les B, Steve McG, we had Donna, Anne, Eunice, Betty, Diane, Elaine and Margo all wishing they were Bobby’s Girl, Graham K, Bernard, and 7 (4) Little Girls Sitting in the Back Seat – Diane, Eunice, Donne and Betty.
Great STARTIME again, so thanks to
- Eddie who gave us Bob Dylan’s Mr Tambourine Man, famously recorded by The Byrds, No 1 in the UK Charts in 1965.
- Les B gave us another Jim Reeves’ song, (I told you he recorded 50 albums) I’m Gonna Change Everything (That Holds a Memory of You) (1962) ****Please let Les know your favourite Jim Reeves numbers for future sessions, my request is Hello Walls.
- Steve McG gave us a calypso, Shame and Scandal in the Family. Originally written in 1943 by Trinidadians Lord Melody and Sir Lancelot, it was a 1965 hit for Lance Percival. Remember him from That Was The Week That Was?
- Mark gave us The Kinks’ A Well Respected Man again (1965). The song was never released as a single in the UK, but was a hit in the US and Mainland Europe.
Next Week it’s Steve Gilmore and Trevor Gwynn. Set list later.
This Thursday it’s Diane and Dave’s session at The Crown, New Springs.
