Thanx for those few kind words! Would I get a fat advance from a publisher? I often wonder what a Motown/Stax fan is doing with such a level of involvement in this absorbing and rewarding music but I am, of course only standing in for the late Tony Wilson - a 6 months tenure that became a way of life.
Gill Burns is back living in Wallasey with long-term partner Richard and steadfastly declining to pick up a guitar. She lived in Herefordshire, near Bromyard for many years. She works in "Folk In Education" or some such body, and if nowhere else I see her annually at John Mackintosh's at-home Burns Night bash in Port Sunlight.
I still have all her records including the single 'Skates And Bananas'and I'm sure she's also got plenty of copies!!!! Loved those songs of hers - 'Romeo' and 'The One About The Beatles' which was deserving of a better title but she never got around to anything more catchy and that tag was what everyone asked her for at the 'Victoria.'
