Wak n Roll

Tidying and found this CD which I don't ever remember receiving and certainly not playing....

Gave it a whirl on the way to Saino's for an upgragde wine (not from LIDL today) and this is what I found.

Strangers in the Night, Saxon.  Somewhat of a surprise
Warm Leatherette, The Normal.  Very early Human League
The Story of the Blues The MightyWah. Of it's time. Not Hey Joe though
24 Hour Garage People, Half Man Half Biscuit. Genius in moderation
Parklife (live), Blur Footie warm up anthem
I had too much to dream last night, The Electric Prunes. Self explanatory
Waving Flags, British Sea Power. Swelling, stirring stuff.
Run for Me, Richard Hawley. Didn't even have to open Lyric Search to work that one out....
Baby, Please don't Go. Who knows? Not the Muddy waters one. Bloody good though
Down by the River. Neil Young, not Al Green. Genius anytime and in any quantity
Martin Newell, John Cooper-Clarke. Wivenhoe Anti-BoHo and Salford sharpness
Aisha, Death in Vegas.Rather frightening to be honest
Tank Park Salute. Billy Bragg. What you hear is what you get

Many thanks The Essex Scribbler, it's pushed Eek-a-Mouse out of the cd player..

The book? A ride and walk up the Colne from Lee-over-Sands to the Ridgewell Brook by Ken Rickwood. I would not imagine any of these would be on Ken's thoughts as he traversed the 42 miles of North East Essex life spring. My old stamping grounds.

  1. Even though I say it myself, that is a fantastic compilation.
