for all the poor unfortunates that couldn't get to glorious blackpool for illumination night. it's all a bit shoddy these days if i'm really honest but it was a birthday treat for years and years and there's still the fisherman's friend shiptram that always astounds and just enough magic to turn me titchy again
Lovely, our lass.
More a case of 'hallucinations' for me these days.
From Winter Gardens to Pleasure Beach, its all a little musty, tired and spent. I can still hear 'Sunny' as I pass the Manchester. I can still smell the rock being rolled. I can still taste the vinegar on the cockles. I can still touch ... the memories. Oh so many memories.
Er....happy birthday?? x
Ally, apologies if I'm stating the bleedin' obvious but it's gotta be an excuse for Vic to do a reprise of his Blackpool number ...
I've been after that Ray Bryant tune for years. So long that I'd forgotten I was after it. Thank you ever so much.
Your site has introduced me to so many amazing pieces of music so thank you for all of them.
pleasure sweetie - it's a little cracker isn't it
yho - there can never be too much vic round here - i've got that song hiding somewhere from when it was on his myspace so i'll dig it out
dvd - i'll memories you in a minute
dh - ta duckie. there was supposed to a big themed hoohah but i never quite got round to it. there might be a little themed hoohah belatedly
Blackpool must have been a treat in its heyday.
I've heard Ray Bryant on other people's records but never heard any of his own music before. I like this. Makes me think of sort of stripped down downtempo Ramsey Lewis or something.
it's an old favourite round here - it really gets jumping after a minute or so and jumps me with it
my old mum and dad went back this year for the first time in about 25 years. They loved it....
