Nice to have Carole and Brian back with us after quite a while, and to have Brian back on the drums, to take over from Brendan away to-night. Wait a minute, have you ever seen Brian and Brendan together in the same room?
Thanks to all our soloists on some of the numbers – Les B, Tommy, Trevor, Eddie, Graham K and Graham P, Dave D, Les H, Steve McG, Steve G, Joy, Carole and Ernie.
Really good STARTIME again, so it’s thanks to
- Les B gave us Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton’s Just Someone I Used To Know from the 1970 album Porter Wayne and Dolly Rebecca. He was OK with the Porter parts but maybe lacked the lungs for the Dolly bits!!
- Trevor gave us an amplified reprise of all the A chords in Labi Siffre’s It Must Be Love (1970)
- Eddie gave us (Lecil Travis Martin) Box Car Willie’s The Lord Made An Hobo Outa Of Me. The wife and I were quite fans of Old Box Car some years ago, so if anyone wants to hear any of his stuff on vinyl, I’m yer man.
- Joy and Graham gave us an excellent well arranged version of Loudon Wainwright III’s White Winos (Mother Liked Her White Wine), the song appears on the album The Last Man On Earth (2001)
Next Week it’s the turn of Les Harris and Al Cross. Set List later.
There are already some photos from the Cheltenham weekend up on the website, so please have a look. http://phoenixukes.weebly.com/
Carole announced that we are booked to do another turn at McCarthy and Stone in Southport on 9th July, about 1pm. Get there for noon and you will be provided with a three course dinner. Please let Carole or Eunice know if you are able to attend, we need about a dozen players.
Congratulations to our own Martin Ainscough on the richly deserved award of a CBE. Brendan it must be your turn soon, services to drumming?
