Roger the zimmer Songs from Our Teens (60* d) RE: Songs from Our Teens 30 Jul 99


Bert, you shouldn't encourage the likes of me to reminisce!
Suffice it to say that as far as my first love, jazz, is concerned, my teens coincided with the "trad" boom so I realised white British people could play jazz as well as* the Americans I'd heard and admired. Too many tunes, but Monty Sunshine's "Hushabye" which was used as the theme song to a creepy wireless mystery serial will always remind me of those years. As far as popular music goes, I always (too frequently, at too great a length, and too loudly, when a drink taken, according to my long-suffering spouse)maintain 1957 was the zenith, and still listen to the Jerry Lee, Chuck Berry, early Elvis etc with affection. As far as "folkish" material goes, from that era, it would be dear old Lonnie Donegan, yes, Rock Island Line, and Nancy Whisky's Freight Train.
[*as well as in the sense of "too", not as good as -being pedantic old fart again].
Ah, well it's POETS day: Piss Off Early Tomorrow's Saturday.
Off to see "Blues Brother/Soul Sister" at Windsor (Berks, not Ontario!), we both like the Blues and she'as a '60s person (as I'm a '50's one) so the Soul section will remind her of when we met (I hope!)
