  1. Exactly, one is an area, the other a shopping centre.
  2. As Col says. By about 64, the impresario, agents and other hangers on were thankfully beginning to lose their grip and influence on artists song content. Rock & Roll had been going for a good few years, and now was the time for the singer/ songwriters , beat and blues groups and rock music to prevail. Thank goodness. Just watching Lynyrd Skynyrd doing Freebird live from Atlantic City on utube. That kiddies is how it's done !
  3. Remembered. Slip Away was Clarence Carter, and Dark End was James Carr. Both brilliant versions.
  4. Yes Col, I know Frankie V did a lot for charity, and I admire him for it, but it was just his looks and song content I struggled with. Anyway, back on topic regarding lyrics. I liked Leroy Van Dyke's 'Walk on By' also two covers by Gregg Allman, namely, Steal Away, and The Dark End of the Street. I love songs of clandestine and illicit associations. That's life !
  5. Of that era, I thought Malcolm Vaughan had a superb voice. He knocked spots of that oily smarmy git, Frankie Vaughan.
  6. Of course groups are valid B. Most of the chart entries over the last 50 years have been done by groups. Especially in the 60's. Some fantastic stuff. Someone mentioned The Hollies, who I consider to be probably the best group other than the Stones and Beatles. Then Manfred Mann. Great talent. Then at the other end of the spectrum. Freddie and the Dreamers.
  7. He did a lot of session work for other artists too.
  8. Homburg is a great story. However the story song that I can't abide at any price is that appalling dirge 'Where do you go to my lovely?' by the equally appalling Peter Sarstedt. Did anyone REALLY look like that ?
  9. Yes, I'm certain I read once that Dave Clark owned the RSG footage. I think it was due to his association with Kathy McGowan that enabled him to do it.
  10. I don't mind good pop songs from any era, but it's the banal mind numbing stuff like Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep and other such ridiculous so called 'novelty' songs. This has developed into a good topic, as long as music snobbery doesn't creep in. Music provides something for most people. Those who say they dislike any form of music must be bereft of emotion. They should check their pulse !
  11. Sorry CT, I can't agree re the Pearly Spencer lyrics. I think they're very raw, emotional and very true to life. I love songs with a story.
  12. Perhaps the police haven't a car capable of catching him !
  13. People interpret songs differently. There's a Frankie Miller song Long way home which Mrs Fly gets a totally different impression of that I do .
  14. One is a game, and the other is a discussion !
  15. Maybe that's over simple Den ! LOL
  16. I wasn't blaming you in particular Compo, but it's become rather infuriatingly prevalent lately. Also rather tedious is the unnecessary habit of ending a post with ones name, when we can all see the coloured disc or avatar. Just what's the point ? Keep it simple without the need for over familiarity.
  17. Sorry chaps, I'm getting pee'd of with the use of 'just sayin'. It's become very prevalent lately......... Just f*****g saying !
  18. Two of my favourites, although very sad are .... Sea of Heartbreak by Don Gibson, and Always on my Mind by Willie Nelson. Also, The Rose, by Bette Midler !
  19. Brilliant Compo. Check out some Frankie Miller song lyrics on Long Way Home CD. Awesome. Bob Segar stuff too.
  20. It'll say 'Not Read' under their name !
  21. Top right hand side. It states you, and the other member in the conversation. Underneath are the times !
  22. Not read I'm afraid. B, you've had pms, look at the top.
  23. Well there's nowt as strange as folks eh ! A newbie posted once, and I knew it was someone from FFGS, so I replied to their request via pm, as some details were personal. That was six months ago, and the PM hasn't even been read yet. This is probably the third time this sort of thing has happened. Very odd. So much for forum etiquette !
