Cruising #2030 -header.

Listen here to this week’s show:

Well, an extra warm welcome indeed . . . . . because we’re back! We’re cruising again and to prove it, we rolled out the Cruise Mobile, polished it up and, as ever, we called by with a seat saved especially for you . . . just so we can all go Cruising with The Commissioner. Everything seemed to work OK and we made sure that we had plenty of great music for our musical adventure, including Fats Domino ‘s ‘Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans’ . . . . and we do . . . . but the Cruise Mobile took us now from New Orleans to Austin in Texas, where we dropped into Darwin’s down on 6th Street to catch The Sidemen giving us their live take on Johnny Taylor’s ‘Cheaper To Keep Her’, with the genial, Wendell Williams up on stage with the band. But, to get things kicked off with great style, we pulled out a favourite by Jerry Lee Lewis and his rocking little number, ‘I’m On Fire’ and we following fast with a great piece of real R&B from Roy Montrell with his 1956 Specialty 45, ‘ Ooh Wow’,

When folks think of the duo Bob & Earl there’s a good Jump Back - Lost Dog Foundchance they think of Harlem Shuffle, but they made plenty of other fine tracks and we dug out one of those for this week’s playlist, ‘When She Walks’. There was also a song that was recorded in America by a band called The Pirates, (nothing to do with the UK’s Johnny Kidd & The Pirates) and they recorded ‘Cuttin’ Out’ for the Back Stage label in 1966 . . . . which sounds strangely similar to the more recent song by both The Steeldrivers and Adele ‘If It Hadn’t Have Been For Love’.

We were so enjoying being back Cruising again, that we lost track of time and, all too soon, we had to turn for home. With well practiced ease, the Cruise Mobile brought us home safe and sound from our musical adventure and as it rolled gently to a stop, we gave it a polish, so it was all ready for the next time we go Cruising with The Commissioner. . . . . and rest assured, when we call by we’ll have a seat saved especially for you and a playlist of some more great choices for our playlist.

So, until the next time we go Cruising with The Commissioner, remember . . . have fun!
