Subject: RE: Early Lonnie Recording
Roger... sad to hear about Monty, I saw him with Chris on the reunion tour as great as ever.
Also saw his band at The 100 Club in my travelling to Slough days in the early '90s, can't remember the line-up at the time, but they were really wailing. I walked in to Cake-walking Babies, sat down and stayed until they chucked us out.
Shared a table with an Aussie couple, conversation went as follows:-

Girl; Who is the clarinettist?
Fella: That's Monty Sunshine!
Girl ; It can't be, Monty Sunshine is a slim young man.
Me; No, Monty Sunshine is a stout middle aged man now!

I still get withdrawal symptons for Soho and Oxford Street.
