Here's a curiosity...

 

UK folk group Prelude did this beautiful 'a capella' version of Neil Young's  'After the Goldrush' in Jan 1974. It charted at No. 21.  I bought the single and still have it somewhere.  But as far as I am concerned they got the lyrics wrong..singing 'in the nineteen seventeen' rather than Young's 'nineteen seventies'.

 

 

 

Here's Young's version from the album of the same title, which I also bought....and still have..

 

 

 

Prelude went through numerous personnel changes over the years but re-recorded the song in 1982, when it was a hit once more.  If I recall they got the lyrics right this time.. I can't find an upload of it, but found this 1984 live version.

 

'Trio'  (Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt) also did a very nice version.

Another early 70s album I still love is Paul Simon's solo effort 'There Goes Rhymin' Simon'.  Some lovely songs on it:

 

 

 

Lovely album.

Indeed. I have a few Paul Simon/S and G albums on vinyl. I also bought the S&G Box set CDs for Mrs Col. That has all their studio albums, plus assorted concerts etc.

But when he gets it right.. he has no equal.

I haven't heard that in probably 45-50 years. I had Pictures at an Exhibition when it was released and liked it, although I never had much time for any of their other albums. Too much technique and not enough music.

Listening to radio 2 playing chart from 1981: It's taking me back to when I was single & used to chase girls at disco's, especial Bestwood Welfare on a Sunday night, also Hucknall Welfare + Apollo & Horse & Jockey in Bulwell...

Picko, who I started out DJ ing with at the 360 etc..was later involved with Pulse Disco, which I believe was at Bestwood Welfare..though not sure of the dates as I wasn't in Nottm at the time.  I think 'Pulse' was to do with somebody called Steve Austin?

Hoping to have a holiday soon. 

To one of our favourite resorts. 

A summery song.

There'll be a chip shop, a posh-ish restaurant and an ice cream kiosk and some boats coming and going, plus a promenade for daily excercise. And of course sunshine.

Your lot wouldn't let us in. We'd have to quarantine on Tasmania for about 3 months, then they could say no. Especially after We'd made an illegal voyage on an inflatable.

Beekay, at the moment we are even restricting entry to our own citizens and as of 14th July the cap on numbers returning will be further reduced. All cases of covid in Australia have their origin in returned overseas travelers 

Our government's implementation of the vaccination roll out has been an omni-shambles and they are still following an eradication strategy. If they want to achieve this then they need to fully close the borders. They would be far better getting on with vaccinating us all as quick as they can.

But if Australians aren't allowed in to their own country after visiting abroad, where are they supposed to go and what do they do??

I guess stay with family, friends or run up mega hotel bills, I don't know but what is more important our federal government does not seem to care.

The latest data indicates that there are some 34-36,000 Australian citizens and permanent residents who want to come home and the list is growing. We are only going to allow 3,035 people to return to Australia a week from July 14th.

From the start of the pandemic having closed the borders the federal government has stubbornly refused to recognise that hotel quarantine is not ideal, in containing covid and that it needs to purpose build quarantine accommodation if it wants to continue with the eradication strategy.

It's a bugger when your own country won't let you come home.

Do they become displaced persons? A bit like that lot in the channel.
