Hey, Ayup Ben, pleased to see you back and sorry you’ve had health issues but hope you settle into your new home quickly.  Did you get out before the rent man called?   Just hope that a few of th

Ben, I'm pretty sure you would be able to get a nice holiday accommodation in Boolwull, possibly Crabtree on sea or perhaps Rise Park Mews. 

 

Rise Park Mews?  How very dare you BK.  I don't care what the council says.. Rise Park is very firmly within the boundaries of Bestwood... as in ..the old hunting estate..

 

Boowul indeed....  :angry:

I only found out earlier that the lovely Nanci Griffith left us yesterday, at the young age of 68. No cause of death officially stated yet.. but she survived cancer twice earlier on.  A terrific singer and songwriter. I never saw her live but all of the UK folks I know who did so, said she was a warm and very human lady.

I have about 9 or 10 of her albums..and picking a favourite song is difficult, but 'Gulf Coast Highway', and 'Love at the Five and Dime', both show the side of Nanci which referred both humorously, and sentimentally to her view of small town America..filled with everyday people being people.

 

 

RIP Nanci.  Enjoy your Sweet Bluebonnet Spring.

Excellent singer in all respects, DJ, but for some reason I never encountered her work at the time. Busy life 70s and 80s.

I'm interested by your selection though and will catch up sometime tonight. Cheers.

I looked up the song to see what inspired it.….

 the song was created after keyboardist Dave Greenfield sadly died in 2020.

JJ says of the meaning behind the track:

“Next thing I knew, Dave passed away. So I started writing about that… He was one of life’s innocents. So I thought it would be good to mark the point – ‘innocence has left this house, to wander among the stars, to light a path before us so we can see’. Just thought, that summed Dave up.”


A strange idea to me but it obviously meant something to the person who wrote it

Same here.  I didn't really pick up on Nanci until the mid 90s.

'Afraid we can't do much about the quality..' Or similar.  Pure genius.

The Gas Man Cometh.

I really enjoy Flanders and Swan clever lyrics and tunes so many gems that become ear worms.

My favourites include The Hippopotamus Song and A Transport of Delight and The Gasman Cometh

Yes, Oz. There is the danger of earworms!  Mozart's horn concerto is still going round in my head.

 

However, it's worth it to see two very talented people enjoying that now endangered animal, The English Sense of Humour!

Didn’t Chris Montez have a song with the same title or at least similar? Very often played at Goose Fair?
