"another 'hot' young lady called Jennifer Pike"

Yes indeedy she could "fiddle" with me any time.

OK I'm off to stand in the corner.

You would need to watch out for your crotchet or you might quaver!

Wonderful Beethoven: second only to Mozart.

For the jazz-loving Andra- what about this? A sparkling wee band, a grand melody and a brilliant kid.

Thanks, DM, and in appreciation your forthcoming court-martial for errors in strategic thinking is cancelled - or on second thoughts, postponed!

Very nice, DM. Very pretty and talented too.
And to keep the musical theme moving along, check out Tommy See Poy on Utube. The sax man's elder son.

Can you please give me a proper link, Andra, I am not signed up to YouTube.

David, I don't seem to know how to do that.
Maybe JK will be able to manage it.
It ain't working for me.

I may need the band's name Andra. Is this it?

JK - that's Tom & Harry Rivers (Muddy Waters' younger cousin)alright. Nice little place on the beach.

The "band" has no name and that's a pretty bland tune.

But, there is another Utube clip which I found by just Googling Tommy See Poy. Much better than this one.

But many thanks, JK. I hadn't seen this one and I'm not sure that Tom and Harry know about it. I'll tell them.

For Wagner lovers, here is an 'alternative' rendition of 'Ride of the Valkyries', followed by a bit of Hawkwind : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBweqmLk6dU

Enjoy!

Paul, the thud you heard was the Regimental Sergeant-Major of the Parachute Regiment fainting away and the distant hum is poor old 'Waggers' spinning in his mausoleum! Great fun!

Will "Nobody Else But Me" do?

If YouTube not working, try this.

Click "play" on far right.

The first one worked for me, Uppers, thanks.

Andra, he's certainly a chip off the old block, it's uncanny!

Yes, he is a big talent and his father is very proud of him. Many thanks to you, Mr (?) Up2L8.

Y'un's welcome.

Thanks Ups.

I've a lot of stuff blocked an' all I knew to do was go to Cairns.

(Andra? What's specifically blocked is that site resembles something like "everybody's" tip o' the nose back to before the ear-rings & all the whatnot "everybody" posts there. --- ya know?)

Ups of course (that I know of) never had the pro ... ... experience of being on an Aussie-Captained ship. Well maybe but I doubt it.

Ups?

You the guy *helped* me "behind the radiator" as me'n the Aussies'd already got to The China Fleet Club in Hong Kong just before the US Seventh Fleet showed up?

1978?

Just wondering.

JK - I'm having trouble with this. Give me a hint.

A bit after my time, JK. My experiences (perhaps somewhat questionable) in HK ranged between 59`-67`.
