My Notes…Enjoy please…
PS. roughseas if you want a copy of this song or vid i can pass it to you.
Hey roughseas you ask me for this song and I was not going to let it beat me. I managed to find the song, but not a video, so to get over this I managed to find a place that allowed me to download it, and then to enable me to put it on my site I made the music into a video and uploaded it to You Tube and then do the normal thing to get it onto my CyKlopps site. Roughseas I really hope you enjoy this song and of course the simple pictures into video. This song comes off the Album called ‘Mighty Garvey’ The song I use is from BBC pick of the pops. Thank you roughseas enjoyed this challenge
Manfred Mann….brief notes.
The Mann-Hugg Blues Brothers were formed in London by keyboard player Manfred Mann and drummer/vibes/piano player Mike Hugg, who formed a house band in Clacton-on-Sea that also featured Graham Bond. Bringing a shared love of jazz to the British blues boom, then sweeping London’s clubs (which also spawned Alexis Korner, The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds), the band was completed by Mike Vickers on guitar, alto saxophone and flute, bassist Dave Richmond and Paul Jones as lead vocalist and harmonicist. By this time they had changed their name to Manfred Mann & The Manfreds. Gigging throughout late 1962 and early 1963 the band soon attracted attention for their distinctive sound.
After changing their name to Manfred Mann at the behest of their label’s producer John Burgess, the group signed with His Master’s Voice in March 1963 and began their recorded output that July with the slow, bluesy instrumental single “Why Should We Not?” It failed to chart, as did its follow-up (with vocals), “Cock-a-Hoop.” The overdubbed instrumental soloing on woodwinds, vibes, harmonica and second keyboard lent considerable weight to the group’s sound and demonstrated the jazz-inspired technical prowess in which they took pride.
After doing this post I have to say I learnt something, one note is the amount of players he had and one especially by the name of Jack Bruce, ex Cream, actually before Cream. Thank you roughseas enjoyed this challenge
She is best known for her 1976 duet with Elton John, entitled “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart“, which went to Number 1 both in the UK Singles Chartand the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. In 1993 she performed another duet with Elton John for his Duets album, a cover version of Cole Porter‘s “True Love“, which reached #2 in the UK.
In the 1970’s, Kiki was in a long-term relationship with Elton John’s guitarist Davey Johnstone. When the relationship ended, it took her a long time to get over the loss. She has never married and has never had children. In 1991, Kiki was diagnosed with uterine cancer. After surgery and radiation treatments, Dee seems to have beaten the disease. She currently lives in a cottage in Hertfordshire.
