On the eve of our annual statement of daylight critical mass on the bank of the Yarra, TFC aggregated some top tunes and a tentative first.

Exciting times all round.

Meanwhile here’s my latest piece of Eurovision tomfooleryon the estimable ”


Long Walk Back – The Rifles

United Provinces Of India –Cornershop

I’m The Urban Spaceman – Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band

That Old Black Magic – Kevin Spacey

Talented man Mr Spacey who has just done a season  in Shakepeare’s Richard III in Sydney.  Pretty good at impressions too.

Long Big Slidin’ Thing –Dinah Washinton

I couldn’t possibly comment.

Nid Diwedd Y Gan – Maffia Mr Huws

One of the best Welsh language band of all time.  To wish my visitor from Cardiff bon voyage after a month here.  We’ll always have Puffing Billy.

Gason Total – Orchestre Tropicana D’Haiti

You’re The Cream In My Coffee – Seth MacFarlane

Yep the man behind “Family Guy”.  As Peter, Brian, Stewie and more Seth MacF has displayed his vocal chops on numerous occasions.  This track is from his recently released album “Music Is Better than Words”.

Here he is in more familiard circumstances.

 Changing Of The Guard – Bob Dylan

Day In, Day Out – Petula Clark

The Hitler Audition – The Producers Soundtrack

This is my first digitising from my vinyl & cassette collection !! It comes from a soundtrack album of the original film “The Producers” which became a musical. 

Good Behaviour – Rock Follies

Returning to a great UK series from the 70s about an all-woman rock band. “Rock Follies” was an incredibly political series which aired on commercial television.

Up On The Roof – The Drifters

I Am Woman – Jessica Williams

Haste Que Pueda – Amanda Martinez

Pull Up To The Bumper – Grace Jones

Charlie Brown – Vince Guaraldi
