Talking about Slim Whitman on another thread got me thinking about Frank Ifield..who liked to do a few Whitman songs.  Frank was one of my Mum's faves..as also was Charley Pride.

 

 

And a Slim Whitman song:

 

 

And Slim's own version:

 

And finally.. a bit of Mum's other favourite:

 

 

..with what sounds very much like the 'slip note' piano style of Floyd Cramer.. in the backing..

I listen to "Always" and I'm thinking of fabulous Mrs WW, from happy courting days to the sweetest honeymoon, through all the years, all the sunsets, all the sunrises, all the hard times, near disaste

Ben, another group called The Spinners with some fantastic shots of the UK. The song was all about the "Right to Roam". Written by Ewan MacColl I've walked and climbed in most of the places in th

Great memories of this song.........Bodega.. sunday nights about 63/64.....Not really a dance venue back then...however Sunday nights had only a few customers.......and with the right Barman we pushed a few tables back and with right music on the Juke Box plus the right Girls from Carlton...(Trina and Maggie) me and my mate Keith (Columbo) we were in heaven........just loved the old 'Bodega''

I did say ''not a dance venue'' Brew...........but Sunday nights were very quiet and the Barman agreed for us to move a few tables..and what with the 'Low lights' it was perfect.......would have been too busy for anyone to Dance Saturday nights...

Pentrich Rising absobloodylutley fantastic RR thanks for posting.

I had never heard of the rising so I looked it up on the webulator. Why oh why weren't we taught this local history at school it would have been so much more interesting.

When we lived in NSW we often visited Kiama where George Weightman died. There is a monument to him in Kiama. and had I known I would have taken a look at it

'Hey Baby' has to be one of the top 10 pop songs of all time.  Incredible atmosphere generated by

Bruce Chanel's voice and that wistful harmonica.

 

For some reason.. probably to do with school.. this one always goes with it..

Thanks Ben, yeah, last summer at school. All the nostalgic icons you could want.

Meet the gang at Joe's cafe (or wherever). Walks through the park (streets) neath the shiny moon, when we kiss she makes my flat top curl! I had a 'Tony Curtis' hair cut in those carefree days; they get better with the recalling!

DJ360. Hey Baby was 2 years after I left school. I like the song. Its nostalgic memory hook for me is that when I was at college in Birmingham it was on the common room juke box and got played a lot. Along with Take Good Care, Bobby Vee. And surprisingly, Never Goodbye, Karl Denver. Now, is that last one in your collection, DJ? :)

Nope.. it isn't WW.  I did like his version of Wimoweh in  sort of masochistic way though..and I once saw him walking down Shaespeare Street when he was playing Nottm. Apparently he is buried in Stockport Cemetary.

Memories of youth. We're all going on a summer holiday (hurray) no more working for a week or 2, (hurray again) fun and laughter, swimmin and ice creams, candy floss, big bag o' chips, and rides on the seaside funfair.

Hi Margie, glad you liked it. One of the happiest clip was of some little Afrikaan children, they were only about 6/7 and the grins on their face was infectious. Also on the Swiss police, I thought funny was a female officer dancing away, with a gun strapped to her hip !
