Thanks to this week’s Ashes – Brian on drums, Ken on bass, Tom on percussion and Eddie on harmonica.
Thanks to those members who took the lead on many of the songs – Les B; Anne; Carole; George; Graham P; Mark; Trevor; Dave D; Eric; Dave Shotliff; Eddie; Ernie; Joe and Les H. Dave D, Trevor and Graham P were all at the Hop, and Brian Belshaw was lying through his eyes.
Excellent STARTIME this week, so it’s thanks to:
- Joy and Graham who sang the BeeGees’ I Started A Joke (1968). This song was never released in Britain as a single.
- Les B gave us Wings Of a Dove. Originally written in 1958 by Bob Ferguson, it was first recorded in 1960 by one Ferlin Husky. Never heard of him ?, neither have I, but he had a string of US Country hits from 1953 to 1975.
- Mark sang The Animals’ Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood. Written originally for Nina Simone, who recorded it in 1964, this version is from 1965. Eric Burden re-recorded the song a few times over the years.
- Joe accompanied by his backing band Dave D, sang a very good version of Six Days on the Road. Originally recorded in 1963 by Dave Dudley – not another Dave D !!!!!
