OLD PA'S WEDNESDAYS CLUB
POT LUCK - 2!
This is the second in the series where I pick a number and I find the corresponing song on a list of 'My All Times Greats File' (my choices of course). The intention is to see if I can do a Post about that song.
Good choice Old Pa, UB40s Don't Slow (Down Extended Version)
A few weeks back I did a post about UB40 and Ally Campbell's version of Dylan's, I want You. Maybe I did them a little dis-service. But a great thing about doing posts is that you somtimes get the odd comment that counts.. (You don't get many, I hasten to add), But I got a comment that mentioned Present Arms (1981), UB40's second album and I got a flood of emotions and visions thinking about that album.
It reminded me of so much!.
looking forward to their follow up album to Signing On and not being disappointed (is that a first). Making up a compilation tape and being happy when this came on. Being in Nice in Old Ma's, Mum's flat with a glass of local Vino in hand after being at the Jockey Club (a local bar) and leaving behind the 5 plastic shopping bags from the local supermarket.
But we were 'Starriyed and Laughing' . It was not the end of the World!.
We were happy, Flycasual was happy, an ice cream cone in his hands.
I have probably got that tape somewhere, somewhere!
A happy tape!
Good times.Thank You UB40 for the memory.
