Roger the Skiffler Obit: Chris Barber RIP (1930-2021) (20) RE: Obit: Chris Barber RIP (1930-2021) 03 Mar 21

Very sad. We didn't have a gramophone at home so my jazz in the 1950s was via BBC and Radio Luxembourg and I became a fan of Chris. When I earned my first wage I bought a hifi and his records were among the first I bought. We saw him many times in from the 1960s, mainly in the 100 Club in Oxford St but also in larger venues right up into the Big band years. The last time we went to see the Big Band he was absent in hospital after a fall and not long afterwards he retired. Thanfully I still have lots of records, tapes and CDs of the various Barber bands, not to mention the 78 of Rock Island Line that Sheila brought as her dowry!
