Thanks to Trevor and Steve for a great evening for those who attended with an excellent selection of songs. Reduced Ashes this week. For a time we thought the multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist Tom was going to have to play cajon, bass and ukulele. However, thanks to Tom on percussion, Eddie on harmonica and Brian on bass. Thanks to those who lead on many of the numbers – Les B, Mark, Dave D, Al, Eddie, Ernie, Donna, Betty, Gillian and Bernard.
Another fine STARTIME , thanks to:
- Al who gave us James Taylor’s Fire and Rain (1970) from his Sweet Baby James album. The song is said to be a reaction to the suicide of a close friend and his own experience with drug addiction.
- Les B sang Ned Miller’s From A Jack To A King. Originally released 1957 it failed to chart, but the re-release in1962 became a massive hit.
- Dave D gave us The Verve’s The Drugs Don’t Work, written by Richard Ashcroft, from their Urban Hymns album (1997).
- Mark then sang The Beatle’s Girl from the Rubber Soul album (1965)
To-night is Diane and Dave’s evening at the Crown, New Springs. Enjoy.
