Subject: RE: Review: Early Lonnie Dongan tracks
Just checked, this double CD (Chris Barber: 40 Years Jubilee)came out in 1994.As Flash says it was issued in Holland from Dutch & German live recordings. Number is Timeless CD TTD 586.
Saw CB last night with his bigger band (10 piece). Sheila was upset as blues guitarist John Slaughter was off sick with labrynthitis (she's had a crush on him since he joined the band 42 years ago with a bubble perm like Brian May's!).However Andy Coutts, the young (2 generations younger than most of the band, as CB said!)banjo player replacing Paul Sealey, played good blues guitar as well as rhythm and single string banjo. The band played usual mix from Jelly Roll Morton through early Ellington and Rhythm 'n' Blues through to Miles Davis, with vocals from Chris and Pat Halcox (52 years together, is this a record?)....but I digress!
