I love the idea of a Church pianist, but better an organ or very better still a harmonium! I own an 1870's Sterling reed organ from Derby, Connecticut that is very rare, I got it for £10, around 12 dollars, it's worth much more as it's a rare one. How on earth it came to England, don't ask me, but I deal in antiquities.... It takes up space but I love it!

I prefer the organ, too, but the one in my church is out of commission. I was right in the middle of the second hymn of the Easter service back in 2017 and everything but the bass pedals cut out. My brother looked it over, since I can repair a piano but electronics are beyond me, and we narrowed the problem down to the speaker. I've been trying to track down a replacement speaker since then, but I can't find one in the price range that the church will authorize and I'm not in a position to be able to pay for one without compensation.

It's amazing how small the world is really, I met someone that clearly knew someone, very closely, that you met! Banks was the best keyboardist of the day, with Wakeman a close second.... it was a new beginning, a renaissance of music that got dashed!!!!

I'm afraid there was a misunderstanding. I didn't meet Tony Banks. I was saying that it did me more good to meet the unknown, though widely heard, keyboardist than it would have to meet the man that got me into keyboards to begin with.

I actually lost a bit of respect for Banks when I found out that his condition for keeping the band together was to get rid of their drummer and hire one of "equal stature." Mayhew actually did pretty well on Trespass, so I'm sure he wasn't talking about music. Mayhew was the only working class member of Genesis. I'm not sure how the whole class system works in England, but as an egalitarian who couldn't care less about being descended from members of the merchant class the whole "get rid of this peasant or we shut down the band" thing rubbed me the wrong way.

I'm still on a Genesis kick, but lately I've been going back to Billy Joel. I honestly don't know what I think of him. Only the Good Die Young, a song I can't escape hearing at least every two days, is basically a few minutes of him saying "forget your values and jump into bed with me." As such it is the only song to date that I've heard that infuriates me to the point of wanting to punch the author.

But at the same time he wrote four of my all time favorite songs. I don't know if I want to chat with him for ideas or just break his jaw.

Here's one of his that's been getting a lot of mileage with me lately.

The only  stadium concert I ever went to was Billy Joel in Croke park, in Dublin pronounced Crow. He was introduced by the comedian  Peter  Kay. Check  him out if you  don't know  him.
I was with my girlfriend. I was entranced.

Oh some gems tonight. What a day, out with a friend buying collectables and antiques. Bought a £10 figure that is worth a standard 200-300 pounds! Others are 20+ hits.... oh my God am I good!!! Only one bad buy outta around 20.... a big Chicken vase, note to self.... never buy Chicken vases!!!!!!!

So I retire end of September.... I will be 60. Gonna take that sabbatical and finally travel, so watch out....

My new vocation has me with enough now to fill two long tables on antiques and collectable fair stalls a full of goodies three or four times over and I am raring to go!!!! I can't wait!!!! So excited!!!! I will be travelling all around Southern and Western England again, something I did with racecourses in my heyday..... no I was not a gambler, I worked at the races! And back then, I could bewitch many a man that was straight into 'king me....

The Banks Of The Old Ohio is a poular song. But.... not many people know that is s old. The original composition cannot be trace to any one person, though modern arrangements claim much. It is at least 19th century, but most likely an early tune. For many of such graphic horridness usually are at least 1810s if not 18th century, it for sure arrived from somewhere else and it would be good if someone, one day discovered a European ballad that is it's precursor.

Here is Olivia Newton-John with the tune..... fine Englishwoman she be, as is half... nay... quarter English of me, if ever there was.... (I must not forgot my eighth Irish and eighth Scottish bits on top of my half Norwegian bits)....



And on to another.... Kossoy Sisters, I'll Fly Away. The original and first. I love these twins!!!! This one is known, it was written in 1929 by Albert Brumley but still had an earlier influence it is thought. So the song could be very early. I'm gonna add 'Ohio' and 'Little Birdie by the Kossoy sisters and you may realise why they did not get the recognition they deserve. They were superb, but do not have the lustre, the falseness, the cheapness of the rubbish, sheer rubbish, trash, shit that sells as  being sold under false pretention as music today...... you get to see the sisters live on the last song, Little Birdie.

Ellen and Irene take it away!!!!!

So I did like the film, Oh Brother, how art thou, because it showcased some great songs..... oh my did I like them!!!!

Kinda the style was already there, I surely don't have to put the Kissoys here again? . I like these



I accept there is no replacement for the Peasall Sisters, but the very famous... in the thirties Carter Sisters sang the song better...



I love these songs, simply because they are very, very old. They predate historic record by a century and more and are the true beginnings of modern music, and, sorry.... all modern music originates from Europe, I do not accept that it came from anywhere else. I am the most libertarian type of person, but I do like facts. And I do not doubt it is where the main stream of modern music arrived from, although it is true enough it had influence upon it's way.. My third most important hobby is the origin of music.

Early rock and roll in Lousiana, predates Bill Haley & The Comets by nearly thirty years...... this is pushing it but it has the same rythmn, many were closer to raw rock and roll in the twenties.

This is beautiful...



... and a rare beauty.... maybe I already put this here, but it will show you how real performers can ... well perform! I doubt few modern fancies, and it's true for many years could do such a rendition of their hits in somebody's living room!

It's my birthday and a special one..... I am all alone tonight. So here is my bestest six songs ever!!! All mean something to me, the last one is evocative of bad times, but strangely I like this outta all of that man's music..... I play it now and then to get over those times. I find joy in many kinds of music, I could put a hundred here. Celia xx















So, I am adding a sixth, and then going to beddybyes. Coz it's about what went on in Mayfair back in the day.... I had one experience there, Mayfair, and I was treated well by the man I met. It would have been around 1979. Millie, did too, a different one coz she was published nude by a magazine that should have known better. She sings of the those times....... I will always love her song of Mayfair...
