Eyup Ben! Moving house at our time of life is a right bugger, in’t it? I’ve recently done it and haven’t sat down since April,

I’d be really angry if the removal company had lost our chairs when we moved house smile2

Hey Benj, it sounds like we are having a similar morning. Hubbs put my Billy Fury  CD on and I have cat called my way through all the songs. I only have to hear the first chord and I can guess the song, that has just finished and we are working our way through our Roy Orbison one. I have just murdered 'California Blue'. The patio door is open and I am serenading all the neighbours this morning.

 

It's been so long since I put a video on NS I'm not sure if it is correct. SOZ?

Could talk Jack Bruce & Nottingham, saw him three times in the eighties and refused entry on another occasion, due to being sold out. Amazed that a certain gig hasn't been mentioned on here!

Still playing my old CDs and keep getting memories from them from my travelling days,

Used to do interviews in Grimsby at a Christian place which was known as the"" Ice house" Obviuosly from its fishing industry past,,they had a small theatre and ran things for local kids there,,plus a coffee shop (where i did my interviews) and a little shop selling all kinds of Christian artefacts,,

Anyway the CD I'm playing just now i purchased there about twenty years since,,its by the "Jubilee choir""and is full of uplifting songs,, Morning has broken" "You'll never walk alone" "All people that on earth do dwell"" and many more,,whether your religious or not,,you can't help but be "uplifted" in the morning by songs like these,,

 

My mind slips back to the nice people that ran it,,and and always made me welcome,, loved Grimsby and Cleethorpes,,

Hymns always remind me of assembly at infants and junior school. Reading the words off a large sheet of paper which was fixed to the wall in the school hall.

We had hymns rammed down out throats at school for years. Whenever I go to a wedding or a funeral I know all the words without resorting to a hymn book. You can never shake off the religious indoctrination to which we were subjected.

Phil, if you come to my funeral, you won't know the words of the songs!    I've chosen some of my favourite modern ones - ones which have words that mean a lot to me.   I know I won't be there, but I would like people to remember me partly through the songs.  The church will probably present them via the sound desk with downloaded music and singing...  and the words on a screen.   Many churches nowadays are probably very different places from those you remember - at least the ones are that have moved forward in their outlook.  The basic beliefs are the same but the way these are presented and shared is more up to date.    Christianity is not an old  fashioned belief.  It's relevant in the world today

Not sure which gig you are referring to, but I saw him with Cream at  what was then Nottm Tech (Nottm Trent Uni now I think.) I have mentioned it before.

He played Nottingham twice in 1984. On 5th June, at an Alexis Korner tribute gig with an all-star cast; and on August 21st with a 4-piece band....and I was at the second one.

Ben, when your time comes, we'll rewrite that old song from Oklahoma just for you. Something along these lines...

 

I'm just a boy who cain't say no,

Kissin's my favourite food

with or without the mistletoe

i'm in a holiday mood.

other boys are coy and hard to catch

but other boys aint havin any fun

every time i lose a wrestling match

i have a funny feeling that i won

although i can feel the undertone

i never make a complaint

till its to late for restraint

then when i wanno i caint

i caint say no

Must confess, I thought the Alexis Korner show was April '84, so much so I plonked my size 13 feet on the ladders to the loft..normally when I want something I leave it to my more nimble daughter!

I was looking for a cassette tape..Spot on Cliffton! June 5th spoken by John Shaw on Trent, the Folk show, this was broadcast a few weeks later, Grandad recorded it for me as I didn't reside in Nottingham.

At one time it was on utube, don't know if it still is, but missing the interviews with Jack, Iain Stewart and Jimmy Page.

As for the gig itself, while being very well attended it didn't feel overcrowded, listening to the interviews think it was kept a little 'hush hush' who was appearing..a truly magical night, if I could 'revist' this would be the one.

Sorry for the ramble..Jack Bruce part 2 to come

A boring night on the box last night, so it was earphones on, and an evening of utube gems. Began with Free, then Frankie Miller. Found a pearler of Frankie and Paul Kossoff, 'I know why the sun don't shine'. Then a bit of Alvin Lee, with another super track, 'Motel Blues'. 

Kossoff's playing is so smooth, but raw. Intense, but also so melodic. Contained, but flowing, and expressive. A sad loss.

Play the two aforementioned tracks, and if you're not emotionally moved by them, then I'm afraid you've no pulse!
