Marooned with a Dansette.

Recommended Posts

DJ360 (#65), I've posted some of those songs you mentioned on the 'Listening To The Blues' thread. 'Dust My Broom' was also the first Elmore James recording that I'd heard and, like yourself, I was totally blown away and spent that day searching for more stuff by him. When I stated in an earlier post that I'd searched the Internet for Blues music that had influenced the Rolling Stones it was obvious that I meant a lot later on. There was a mountain of stuff that was written about the Rolling Stones at the time and they even had their own fans mag. I've still got all those in the loft..lol.

Mary, the Pogues were on BBC4 last night in a compilation of BBC films from TOTP, Old Grey Whistle Test, and other programmes feature duets. They sang something about Christmas. But what (mildly) interested me was a duet where folk singer Julie Felix and Leonard Cohen both sat on stools, strummed guitars and sang a romantic duet. Never heard Cohen like that before.

I watched that programme, and really enjoyed it. My favorite had to be Shirley Bassey and Neil Diamond singing Play Me. You could almost read their minds it was very very romantic.

Talk about "Eye Contact"

I see, "Whiter Shade of Pale". In so many of these lists. I think a lot of you folks would find you really enjoy a lot of Bach's stuff if you give it a listen.

My record player was a Bush too. You could get a matching front speaker for it that plugged in to make it stereo. I couldn't afford that bit though, so had to make do with mono only.
