  1. I was expecting a segue into 'Tokyo Melody' by Helmut Zacharias ! !
  2. Greetings. UPFRONT ADMISSION - I'm not a fan of Reggae/Dub/BlueBeat/Ska etc.. but reading some of the posts in 'The Reggae Thread' elsewhere on this Forum got me thinking. Way back in the 70's I used to watch a TV programme called 'Reggae Sunsplash'. IIRC, the programme showcased the 'authentic' side of Jamaican Reggae. The only band name I can recall is 'Chalice'. Anybody else remember the programme? There seems to be a lot of respect for Sly 'n' Robbie on BC so I listened to a few of their tracks recently, and I remain underwhemed (I did say that I'm not a Reggae fan) - but my interest has been piqued and I would be interested in checking out some good un-commercial reggae - any suggestions please. Chris
  3. You beat me to it Meterman. I've been listening to this track since 1970 when my Dad bought the album - and it's on my iPod. 2' 25" of percussion-istic (?) exuberance, excitement and sheer joy. Play it loud and then play it again
  4. Thanks for the clarification Muppet, I missed that ! Chris
  5. Extract from https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/the-visitor-economy (Last sentence of paragraph following 'The 14 Steps That Will Usually Be Needed') "At this time, venues should not permit indoor performances, including drama, comedy and music, to take place in front of a live audience." Dammit. Chris
  6. ............ kitchen finished today ! !
  7. Oh - so many good solos out there but my current faves are both sax solos Steven Marcus' solo (starts at 2' 30") is a bit tasty AND Richard Elliot's sax playing .................. - pick the bones out of that.
  8. I've recently taken delivery of 2 x StewMac catalogues from Keith. Great communications and prompt delivery. Thanks for a smooth transaction Keith.
  9. Been playing for church services for a while now. I've managed to incorporate bits of the bass lines from 'Another Brick In The Wall' (Pink Floyd), 'Do It Again' (Steely Dan), and 'South Of The Border' (Doobie Brothers). Generates grins from the other band members and positive comments from musically aware members of the congregation. Chris
  10. Oh go on then, I'll give them a new home - PM on its way.
  11. Had the pleasure of seeing Sweet live at Woods Leisure Centre in Colchester when Blockbuster was top of the charts (around 1973 ish). Great band, and they really rocked the place. They played a Who Medley which included My Generation with accurate Bass Breaks. I got their autographs for my sister. RIP Steve Priest - a fine bass guitarist and a nice guy. Chris
  12. Right now I am listening to Crossroads by FREE - live in Sunderland
  13. Ideally - tonight. Realistically - when situation and circumstances permit, and even then it depends on whether the band members are still up for it. Chris
  14. Welcome back and hope you make a full and speedy recovery. Best wishes to Mrs NFF too, must have been an ordeal for her. Take care and stay safe. Chris
  15. Mornin' all. Some businesses are re-opening on or about 15 June (presumably with the appropriate social distancing measures) - any thoughts as to whether this will include rehearsal rooms and/or recording studios? Chris
