What are you listening to now ??

Recommended Posts

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 the old stalwart Nottstalgians poke their heads around the door and see that all is calm again.

 If we get loppy back, and as Lizzie says, get a few old stalwarts returning, we might get some REAL banter back.

Pleased to see you here again Ben and hope things start to settle down a bit. Seems a few of us have been in the wars of late, hopefully there will be no more for awhile and we get on...

This should keep music buffs busy for a while .

 

The Boston (USA) Public Library have put online some 48000 recordings , many of them 78s .

 

I selected "Ellington" and these came up but earlier had a listen to some old Sonny Boy Williamson tracks .

Terrific stuff! If you listen to Creole Love Call, you hear the vocal which was done by the late Adelaide Hall, who came to England in the 1930s and remained here.  I was priveleged to meet her in of all places Southport, were she was on the same bill as my late Father in Law in an 'Olde Tyme Music Hall' show.

Also some great early tracks such as Immigration Blues, The Creeper', etc., which I still have on a Decca compilation AH23 'The Duke in Harlem' from around 1962.

Jackie De Shannon, one of my all time favourite songwriters.. but this time singing her version of Bacharach and David's 'What The World Needs Now is Love'. Seems timely.

Bulwell and Foreign are interchangeable. 

 

It depends whether you're outside looking in, or inside looking out.

Bulwell definitely stirs the emotions in folk,,i recently defended Bulwell on "nottm,way back when" and got 18 likes,,,i think its terrific that its still known as Bulwell Town,,within the city,,the only other i can think of is Basford Town,,anyone think of any others?

Beeston Town?  Not many people know that there's a B&Q in Beeston square.

Just watching England vs India in the cricket, a great opening partnership between Bairstow and Roy. Between the overs they are playing a version of this.
