What a brilliant singer that Sue was! Just a note about song titles: the first was 'While Gamekeepers Lie Sleeping' and the second was 'Rout of the Blues'...

For various obscure reasons this entry will have to remain anonymous. I am sure though, that Sue would want to apologise to Berry for the lack of rehearsal that lead to the buggering up of her final song.

Entirely agree about 'highlight land'. This couple add a new dimension of delight to the ukelele.
+vely 4th St. was pretty good too, but would be complemented by cello accompaniment/solo.

There is a school of thought within the rock music sphere that when a band becomes devoid of ideas or wishes to appear sophisticated they "get the cellos out"....
(cue posh totty sawing away on TOTP as was...)
Heaven fore fend that I should ever find myself in that unenviable position...!

St. Anley said...

I understand, but question this 'school of thought'.
Surely you could accommodate a ukelele, particularly a PINK one!

Not wishing to be at all pedantic but...
I think you'll find that Dave's uke is orange...
