Subject: Diz Disley Discography
From: cptsnapper

Seeing the recent requests for lyrics to Get Away Old Man Get Away & Ivan Skavinski Skavar brought Diz to mind and I was wondering if anyone knows if he's been recorded live at a folk club. It would be a shame if he hasn't.

"Live at the White Bear" sounds as if it might be at a folk club. His tracks on Cambridge FF compilation look as if they're with Grapelli. He also recorded as a duo with Johnny Silvo (more bluesy)which I have. He is, of course, on a myriad of jazz records, trad bands as well as Hot Club style bands.

IF I can get the old bugger to answer his phone , I'll ask him if he has any 'live' recordings .

There was a club in Hounslow in a pub called the White Bear. It was run by the Strawbs, or they were the residents in the days when I went. I do remember Lonnie Donegan turning up there one night, and it was the sort of place that had a good buzz about it. So I wouldn't be at all surprised if the recording was done there.
Giok

Leadfingers, did Diz answer the phone? I dearly hope his "It's Rubbish, but it's British Rubbish!" was recorded for posterity. Any word of recordings?

I remember being swept away by him at the Talisman folk club in Hitchin with his awesome mixture of jazz guitar and comic songs. I had never heard the like. Wow!

I remember a bit of a chorus line from one song: "Yaz, Yaz, Yazz" as in (I'm making this bit up) "and the old boy kicked him up the Yaz, Yaz, Yazz". Ring any bells.

I remember Maureen calling "just one more please!" (one more song) as she tried to bring the performer to a halt.

Good times! :)

I hope he's recovered from his heart attack.

Dave Van Ronk used to sing that song too, it's called Yass Yass Yass.

Thanks for mentioning Dave Van Ronk. Diz was the only one I'd heard sing it. Do you know the lyrics. I can only find The Cold Roll mentioning Yasx3 on DT and I don't think that's it.

Computers! Will I ever get the hang of them?
(I think I'm logged in now).

Doesn't sound like any of Diz's amazing pub sessions have been recorded though? Unless "Live at the White Bear" holds these delights?

Diz was a big influence on Chris Flegg, - says he taught him chord inversions! - who is a very accomplished guitarist having learned at Diz's knee ,so to speak , and at many other low down joints.

so it up to me to mention his rendition of the Marriot Edgar/Stan Holloway monlogues, of which 'The Battle of Hastings ' remains my fave

And Bloody Orkney

and the Pakistani cloak room attendant , Mahatma Coat and
the drunken Spanish guitarist , Sickoveryer Carpet

Since this thread started I acquired a copy of "Live at the White Bear" which dates from 1958 with line up of DD, Dick Powell (vln) Neville Skrimshire & Danny Purssord (gtrs) Johnny Johnson or Tim Mahn or Tony Goffe (bass) .Why 3 bassists taking turns on the same evening I don't know (Mahn was booked but arrived late so was deputised at the start). If anyone is interestd I'll list the tracks, all usual Hot Club titles.

Good gags! :)

I added a couple of bits of discography to Wikipedia (link above), but there is little there really. The Hot Club stuff is wonderful, but are there any recordings of Diz's comic turn?

When Diz came back from a LONG time in USA , he ws asking if anyone had any Bootleg recordings of his live stuff , as he had forgotten so much , not having been doing Live gigs for so long

I remember playing with him one time at Cambridge and he started delivering his usual two-liners, and the audience actually joined in with the punchlines. For example:

DD: Here's a song called 'I'll never get over a girl like you...'
Audience: YOU'LL HAVE TO ANSWER THE PHONE YOURSELF

DD: (nursing a glass of whisky: Just a drop to steady myself...
Audience: SOMETIMES I GET SO STEADY...I CAN'T MOVE

And so on. It was really bizarre. I've often heard audiences join in with songs, but never before (or since) with gags.

He's an incredibly funny man, as well as a terrific guitarist. I wish I had a recording of one of those gigs from so long ago.

Like guest CN I was present at a supposed guitar workshop given by Diz where we joined in with the repartee and even though we'd heard it several times before we were still laughing our heads off.
A friend of of mine has promised me a copy of a tape that he made of Diz several years ago so I'll jog his memory. Does anyone have a copy of the skiffle reunion CD on which he appeared a few years ago?

Does anyone know of a recording made, probably early 1963 with Diz, John Barton, Mick Waldrun, Malcolm Pool and possibly a violinist - Hot Club of London. Any info appreciated.
Thanks, Tony.
