Great songs, thanks Peake. I have all those on a Dubliners CD (stolen, I believe, by one of the sons :lol: ).

A few just for you MAD, the third song is what it was like on the sites in the '50's & '60's, I remember it well, Wimpy is a shorthand for We Import More Paddies Every Year

I last saw Jacqui and Bridie at the Ivinghoe folk, way back in '68 and '69

Many years ago, just before Christmas, I was working in Nigeria. The British Council decided to sponsor an English week culminating in an evening of traditional English music with - you've guessed it - The Spinners.

Anyway, come the night the Head Man of Ibadan plus his entourage were seated in the reserved front row. The rest of us "also rans" were ensconced in the back. Cliff Hall started his introduction to the next number, a christmas carol, with the words " Back home in England it is the pantomime season ... " - at which moment a wag from the back shouted out " try working out here all year round".

The occupants of the front row immediately made an affronted exit and a minor diplomatic crisis was precipitated.

Years ago Tony Davis (the tallest member of the Spinners) was a regular in my late father's local in Wallasey. After retiring from the Spinners Tony founded his own Jazz/Swing band, this musical genre being his first love.

That brings back memories!

I last saw them perform 45 years ago at the Everyman, Adrian Henri bouncing around the stage like Tigger (Henri was a big bloke and his bouncing could be detected on the Richter scale).

cheers,

Fred (a Wool, not a Scouser)

I'm not a Scouser, but lived near Liverpool 1960 to 1963. Our first 2 were born there.

Video blocked for me ( in the UK). Billy Kinsley and Tony Crane still perform on the 60s circuit.

Incidentally, regarding the Neville Skelly postings, a French friend of mine who has visited Liverpool and is a Neville Skelly fan once asked me why everyone in scouseland is called Skelly!

Here's something completely different from a Woolyback (Heswall variety):
