Ben, for a minute, I thought you were singing,

"Over the mountains,

Over the sea,

That's where my heart is,

Waiting for me.

Please let the light that shines on me,

Shine on the one I love".

I remember John Barnwell dating Louis Levin's secretary, Eileen, back in the 60's. They subsequently married. Louis, of the lacemaking family, was a lifelong fan of Notts County and became a director. He was an orthodox Jew and wasn't allowed to use transport on the sabbath so he walked from his home on Adam's Hill to the County ground for home matches on a Saturday. I don't know how he got to away fixtures!

I love that song!  Every so often on fb I get the video of a Scottish grandma reading the Wonky Donkey book to a toddler.  I’ve seen it several times but it’s funny every time because she (grandma)  gets increasingly giggly as she reads each page.  Sometimes she is almost helpless with laughing.  Laughter is very contagious….

I did a modern tap dance (with 2 others)to the above song in the old theatre on George Street  when I was about 14.  We had a pianist, though, not Frankie’s strange voice.

I've danced on that stage many times. I wasn't keen on tap dancing but remember taking part in a 42nd Street routine there. Also Thoroughly Modern Millie, song and dance. That's where my shoe came off during the Charleston and flew into the second row!  Our dance teacher was very strict and always told us that even if your head fell off on stage, you take no notice and carry on!

Green Door was originally recorded in the US by Jim Lowe, and his version charted in the UK too.

 

Similarly, Frankie Vaughan's 'Garden of Eden', was inspired by the USA original by Joe Valino

 

 

I don't want to take anything away from Frankie Vaughan, because by all accounts he was a decent bloke.

 

I remember  him opening the rebuilt Boowul Youth Club....  swept by the Bogs in a Land Rover as I recall.. I saw him.

Here's another great ballad from the same period...

 

 

 

This song..and all the others from that period.. always remind me of so much other stuff. Mostly the two fields opposite the street where I was raised.  The way those tunes floated on the air from every house, on a Sunday, as the joint roasted, the veg cooked, and we all listened to 'Two Way Family Favourites'. That was an odd programme which would feature pop songs alongside the 1812 Overture.. and another of my faves at the time:

 

 

And of course this was the height of the Skiffle craze too:

 

 

Lost World..
