I remember how many R & B nights I missed with the early Rolling Stones, but I did see the Downliner Sect at Studio 51 many times!

My mother-in-law had a cottage on Eel Pie Island. Cross the bridge and turn right. Cross the bridge and turn left and you came to the hotel. The most memorable afternoon for me was Peter Green and a few mates playing an amazing concert in the grounds of the hotel. There were so many great gigs played there.

Eel Pie Island Jazz Club provided a platform for trad-jazz musicians including Acker Bilk and George Melly, but also welcomed touring US blues musicians including Jesse Fuller, Buddy Guy and Howlin' Wolf.
It wasn't long before a little known British blues band called the Rolling Stones took up residency at the club.

They had folk nights organised by Sandy Paton there, I recall, when he was here in about 1958-9.

Carousing on Eel Pie Island was not peculiar to the 20th century.
Charles Dickens, in Nicholas Nickelby -
"Unto the Eel-Pie Island at Twickenham, there to ..."
"make merry upon a cold collation, bottled beer, shrub, and shrimps, and to dance in the open air to the music of a locomotive band."
Like this, maybe?

The hotel was very run down when I was there and the surrounding area to it.Always a place to take your new girl friend to ,too impress her.
Cy Laurie was a regular there and they always reckoned that it was later after the band had had plenty to drink you got the best jazz.I only heard Traditional Jazz there ,interesting about the Folk I did not know that was performed on the island.
The inventor of the wind up torches ,phones and computers lives on the island now.
I remember the strange little bridge that went over to it.
Great times.
Al
