Listen here to this week’s show:

Well, the Autumn chills seem to have finally arrived in earnest, but we were ready with a very warm welcome and we rolled by in the Cruise Mobile in the hope that everyone was in a groovy mood and ready to party.

One of the joys of the week was revisiting the TV documentary about the famous Muscle Shoals recording studios and musicians . . . . and to prove we were paying close attention, we dug out the first record cut in those now famous studios . . . . that was Arthur Alexander with ‘You Better Move On’. Our viewing also caught up with the documentary film ‘The Wrecking Crew’ and the film is well worth a look, especially if you’re in any way interested in the 60s music scene in America. There are plenty of fascinating ‘Wrecking Crew’ stories and a few myths shattered along the way, including finding out just how many artists didn’t play the instruments on their own records.

If you ever wondered what the Allman Brothers sounded like when they started out, then we were able to dispel the mystery with something from The Hour Glass . . . . and one of their recordings from 1967 . . . . ‘Out Of The Night’. But, before that we got the Cruise Mobile rolling along with the sounds of Artie Lewis and his Oklahoma 45 ‘Supposin’ . . . .

Our Girls & Guitars feature this week focused on a new album release by Irish singer and guitarist Grainne Duffy. She hails from County Monaghan in Ireland, but she’s over in the UK now to promote her new album. If you catch her on tour, you might just hear her playing tracks from her 2015 Live album, including ‘Reason To Be’.

After clocking up plenty of miles on our cruise this week, time caught up with us . . . . . but all good things have to come to and end and time caught up with us. So, we parked up the Cruise Mobile, and started putting away the records and CDs. We very much hope that we’ll have some more of your good company next week when we’ll call by in the Cruise Mobile, same time, same place, all ready to take you Cruising with The Commissioner. Until then . . . . have fun!
