being the confessions of a recovering hillwalker
Not a bad bit of picking, I'd say. Always preferred the sadly gone Bert, though!
Did you ever hear John James in those days - Head in the Clouds etc. Very underrated.
Indeed I did. He opened for JR & Jacquie McShee at university one evening - a very fine ragtimey player. I subsequently met him when living in Wales and have had contact with him again recently. He's still underrated, sadly!
If I'm struggling to raise the cultural tone of this blog ?I hope your dressed Black tie when you write it up - dinner jacket ,trousers, uncuffed, with one stripe on leg seams; shirt (stiff wing or soft folded collar) with either a pleated, piqué, or ruffled front; a black bow tie; a black evening waistcoat or a cummerbund; black, patent leather or calf Oxfords or court shoes; cuff links and shirt studs ?cheers Danny
