Quality Sounds For Under A Pound

Poor quality snap by refreshed me of Mr Rob's actual 45 at actual event

Well the joint sure was jumping in EC1 on Saturday and I am so, so glad I went: very spontaneously and already a tad refreshed from the cooking tea at home and all, I do apologise Ms A.

This was the song that sent us home elated at the end of the night, played by Mr Rob Ryan who has, I will say, a few quite nice records I expect set him back a bit: standing ovation, cries for more, but it was 1am in the basement and the pub had to close and there were Night Buses to catch - thank you 99p Soul regular Sally for helping me head West on the right one(s); thank you everyone for being so lovely x

  1. I do like that kind of drumming.

    Last time I was larging it out east I had to abandon taxi (due to lack of funds) and walk it from Bishopsgate to Pall Mall and the night bus.

  2. Tune.

    I am really jealous sounds like a great night. I watched Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and grumbled about how Gary Oldman wasn't George Smiley.

  5. Yay! Sally! Thanks to you my dear, no. Had a longish wait at the end of Shepherd's Bush Rd but an amusing shouty man entertained the queue, so that was OK x

    The drumming, the drumming! Yes, grooviness itself Tog, though probs not the kind in Ms A's head yesterday : (

    Alec Guinness is George Smiley, Sean Connery is James Bond, John Wayne is big leggy.

  6. PS: Rob Ryan also sez 'it's the drumming that really gets me now, so, so tight!' - more lovely tunes to stream there too.

  7. I'm just watching Tinker Tailor now for the first time. Spooky. Not very impressed so far to be honest. It looks great, captures the look of the time really well, and the cast is great, if not Guinness. But it's lacking something. I can't stand Colin Firth is most of my problem.

    Ah I miss living in London. I'd have been down for one of these nights well before now if I was still there. Still glad everyone had a good night.
