Thanks Brian and Eric. Don’t know what came over Graham P, Dave D and Trevor but they were like the Three Tenors. It’s either the e numbers in the sandwiches or Brian’s choice of music, but great entertaining stuff. Thanks to this week’s Ashes Tom on percussion, Dave (sometimes Ken or Tom) on bass, Eddie on harmonica and panpipes and Brendan on drums. Thanks to those who lead on some of the numbers – Les B, David “Dave” Sloan, Dave D, Donna and Eddie who were Cooking Something Up, Trevor, Eddie, Joe, Donna, Brian dumped his diddle deedle. Eunice, Margo, Jo and Elaine with My Boy Lollipop, Les H, Graham P, Trevor and Graham didn’t want some girl bothering them, Dave and Elaine had one last love song. Donna, Betty, Eunice and Margo left their Suds in the Bucket
An extended and varied STARTIME, so it’s thanks to
- Don sang Elvis’ first record release on the Sun label That’s Alright (Mama) 1954.
- David S with Dave D gave us Dave Dudley’s Six Days on the Road (1963). The song has been recorded by many country artists including The Flying Burrito Brothers and one of Tom Petty’s bands Mudcrutch. Great names.
- I originally thought Les B was going to do a Barbra Streisand, but it turned out to be a Roy Drusky song Second Hand Rose. The song reached no 3 in the US Country charts in 1962.
- Joe with Dave D were taking it Nice ‘n’ Easy with a song probably best associated with Frank Sinatra with the Nelson Riddle orchestra. The album of the same title was 1960.
- Les H gave us High and Dry from the Rolling Stones 1966 album Aftermath
We are presently being asked by several people and groups to perform small concert items for them at local venues and events. Eunice is keeping a list of members interested in doing the occasional gig, and Brian is willing to be the organiser and contact point for the requests. We would probably need about a dozen members, reasonably competent players and willing vocalists. If you are interested and were not at the last session please seek out Eunice and get your name pencilled in.
