High energy stuff from Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels

Basically a medley of a trad. blues.. C.C.Rider, and Jenny Jenny..which I think is a Little Richard composition.

 

 

I think this one is better.  Devil With a Blue Dress/Good Golly Miss Molly.

 

 

Played this a lot 'dahn the three sixteh..' :)

 

Very 'derivative' stuff but good fun... and as one Youtube comment says.. 'If this doesn't make you move..you're dead'.

Here's an interesting one.  I ended up having a very severe dislike for Terry Scott, but this one was funny....

 

 

Later. Scott revealed his true nature..  I recall hm on some panel show.. where Mick Jagger also featured.  Scott came across as a pompous reactionary bigot, and especially persisted in attacking Jagger for being in a hotel, wrecking the place, etc.  Mick Jagger listened quietly..took all the flak and then responded.  'Absolutely unforgiveable behaviour Terry.. But it wasn't us...'  He reduced Scott to the idiot he was.. with a few words.

 

On the other hand...

 

 

This last one surprised me.  I'd only heard the record of Benny Hill's 'Garden of Love'.. so it was a delight to see him performing it with a suitably unimpressed Aussie star.. the late Patsy Ann 'Trish' Noble.

DJ360, I never enjoyed any of Terry Scott's stuff he was just not funny. Tommy Cooper on the other hand was just brilliant. Wish there was someone around today like him and Benny Hill. Who can forget Ernie.

Bernard Cribbins did some funny comic songs, Hole in the Ground and Right Said Fred, to name a couple. Still with us aged 92

Soon be that time again, memories of standing on the walkway round the waltzer, black leather jacket, collar up, wad of chewing gum, smoking a PD tipped (11d for 5) cars thundering round, gals screaming.

And belting out of the speakers, this;

I loved both Cliff and  Elvis, but I was especially fond of the Everley Brothers.  The  waltzers to me are always associated with Paul Anka’s Diana

The fairgrpound music did slowly catch up with the charts, but the first one I definitely recall from Goose Fair in the early 60s was:

 

I couldn't resist the vid with usual loony American dancers....

 

I heard these two on one memorable visit to Basford Wakes.. in the field (can't remember the name of it.. around 1965:

 

And:

Yes Trogg, the Goose Fair with the smell of the diesel generators, the brandy snaps and the fried onions for the hot dogs and hamburgers.

I claim my $100 pound prize for the first mention of the Goose Fair, Is it likely to go ahead this year?

City Council want to charge people to go onto the Forest site  , the show men will not agree to it , so if no agreement is reached they may move Goose Fair to a different location.

They could always move it back to Slab square ! It certainly would be interesting watching the tram dodge between the waltzer and dodgems etc.

Netherfield Wakes in Jacky Bell's field - trying to look cool, no handed on Fred Cox's Speedway, until the last 20 seconds at full speed -  then hanging on for grim death !

I remember feeling so sad when we heard of Buddy Holly’s death.  I’ve always associate his songs with the summer when I was on holiday in Filey.  I had a crush on the lad who was in charge of the pony rides on the beach, and another lad whom I met at a fair there.  Buddy Holly records were being played on the fairground rides!

When I played in a group, way back in the far and distant past, we used to do a lot of Buddy Holly numbers. I've still got a lot of his LP tapes which I haven't played in years. I wish I hadn't lost a fingertip. I would so such much like to play my Fender Stratocaster again.
