GUEST,Tim Nadia Cattouse - whatever happened to? (158* d) RE: Nadia Cattouse - whatever happened to? 06 Aug 11


What a fine post from Veronica (24.06.11). I can't match the epic consequences that she describes, but I once heard Nadia Cattouse sing, in the summer of 1964 or 65. It was in the White Hart pub, Drury Lane, London, which at the time had a folk night once a week, and I went to maybe 8 or 10 gigs altogether, before moving away. I don't remember any of the other singers, but Nadia was absolutely memorable. And of course her most memorable song was "Long time boy", which I already knew from Nina and Frederik's LP, but Nadia's version was much better. For weeks and weeks the song was what the Germans call an "ear-worm", I couldn't get it out of my head.
Then a few months later I met the love of my life, we lived in Italy, we had two children, I had a career, we had three grandchildren, and I forgot all about Nadia, the beautiful singer who had come to the White Hart. Now, 46 years later, it all comes back to me and it is such a pleasure to see all these happy memories of Nadia. I wish someone would issue a CD of some of her songs, I would buy it like a shot.
To Nadia I would like to say Thank you for a memorable evening, and to her family I would like to say how lucky you are to be related to such an illustrious person, so look after the old lady, for a lot of us remember her with great affection.
