Nineteen of the best. And thanks to Jewel for two cracking Nina Simone tunes.
It’s been a while but here we are – 18 of the best by our favourite blues band.
Peter Moore dropped in and gave us a couple of tracks – check out Cyprus Avenue. Also a cracking rendition of Gloria.
If anyone knows the second track Peter did, let me know by comment here so I can update the track.
See you next Thursday.
So Ed mentions casually that a friend of his is dropping in and that he’s a great sax and harmonica player. Of course it being Ed’s usual understated style, we didn’t expect the treat we were in store for.
Frank Meade squeezed himself in the middle of the stage and we had a Guinness record for the smallest area you could shoehorn a five price band into.
Thanks Frank, and drop in any time (please)! Read more…
The Farewell Gig
It is hard to believe that it’s been over two years since the lads took up residency. Since March 26th, 2009 Noel, Ed and John (joined by Trevor last year) have brought us Dublin’s best blues gig. And we don’t say that lightly.
Alas it all comes to an end and tonight was the last Left, Right & Centre gig in Frank Ryans – and what a send-off.
The lads of course continue to play, so watch out for them. Until then, from all of us at Frank Ryans, thanks for everything and all the best for the future. It’s been a cracking two years.
John Quearney was away this week so Garvin Gallagher substituted on bass. As they say – “a change is as good as a rest” and Garvin added his own unique flavour to our favourite blues set.
Seventeen of the best. For the first time: St. James Infirmary.
Updated 16/04/2011: I fixed an issue that was preventing people from downloading/playing individual tracks.
Seventeen of the best.
According to Tadgh, Ed recorded a version of Louie, Louie with Richard Berry (writer and composer of the song) for the BBC.
Sixteen tracks and the return of Trevor.
Highlights this week: A long awaited Get Right Church and Like A Rolling Stone.
Again work got in the way, so there is no recording of the Paddy’s Day gig.
Great gig and the sound was particularly good this Thursday. It’s a pity that Trevor couldn’t make it – the tinkle of the ivories would have been in with Bring It On Home. (Hope the back’s better Trev.)
