Subject: Origins: Jez Lowe re couple dance Xmas Eve

I remember a song from way back that Jez wrote. Might have been written about Christmas and believe it was about a couple away from home (possibly West Indian?) who dance to old songs on their record player which makes them feel less homesick. It was a good many years ago and we don't seem to have it on vinyl or cd so it might have been on a tape, which of course we no longer have. Forgive me if I've mis-remembered some of the details but it was definitely by Jez Lowe as I complimented him about it when he was a guest at the White Horse Festival at Grove a long time ago.

Would be really grateful if anyone who can help with this search: name of the song and which album it was on.

Many thanks

I think it might be Gramophone Dancing from Wotcheor! (2010) by Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies. 2010 is not so long ago so Jez might have re-recorded it or only just got round to it by then!

The couple in the song are Mr & Mrs Patel who Jez describes as "Hindu and homesick"

Available on Amazon & iTunes.

From the listing on Jez's site:

GRAMOPHONE DANCING – 3.33 (J.Lowe / Lowelife Music) Jez – Vocals, guitar / Kate – violin / Andy – Piano / David – Bass / Hinny – Violin

Christmas through the eyes of immigrant shopkeepers from India, who came to make their home and their living in North East England back in the 1960’s

That's fantastic! Thank you so much. What would we do without you, Mudcat?

You're welcome, G-Force. It's a charming song I wouldn't have come across if not for your query!
