Down along the cove . . .

Listen here to this week’s show:

Well, as this was the last Cruising with the Commissioner show before December arrives, we were bracing ourselves for the beginning of the ‘full-on’ commercialism of the festive season. It seems to start earlier each year, but really seems to get a grip when November is done. So, with the imminent prospect of The Cruisettes scattering festive decorations around Cruise Control, we tried to focus on this week’s show.

There Cruising #135was plenty of variety in our playlist this week from rockabilly to Latin rock and some blues. In between there was a little flavour of New Orleans, because this week we had a celebration of Dr John’s birthday and appearances by Dave Ferrato and Jamie Dell’Apa. Indeed, it was Jamie and our good pal The Spongeman who inspired our selection of British 60s bands, including The Count Bishops and The Chances Are. But, we got off to a flying start with a 1958 Capitol from The Five Keys titled ‘You’re The One’ and our enthusiasm quotient was hovering in the red as we followed up with ‘My Love’, a 1962 Jan Ell 45 by Hayward Lee. . . .

Our Girls & Guitars feature this week focused on Australian, Sally-Anne Whitten. She hails from New South Wales and has developed a blend of swampy blues, R&B and southern rock, which we demonstrated with something from her 2006 debut album ‘Blurring The Lines’ and her version of ‘ I Believe I’m In Love With You’.

Sadly, just as everyone was partying in Cruise Control, we ran out of time. Mr Merlot took great delight in wagging his finger at me for that but we did find time for The Spiders to take us home with their appropriately titled ‘Goodbye’. So, with the Cruise Mobile parked up for another week, we were hoping we could entice everyone back again same time, same place next week next week, when we’ll swing by in the Cruise Mobile again with a seat saved especially for you. So, until the next time we go Cruising with the Commissioner . . . have fun!
