Into something good . . .

Posted: June 8, 2016 in Hear This . . . . !

Listen here to the latest Cruising with The Commissioner:

Well, around the Grand Duchy the weather (like the current politic scene) seems uncertain and unpredictable, but one thing was re-assuring constant . . . . our preparations for this week’s Cruising with the Commissioner. So, when the appointed time rolled around, we were well placed to extend cheery greetings to one and all. Our playlist had the usual mix of ‘real’ R&B, some rockabilly and a fair share of Northern Soul, all helped by a trawl Cruising #200through some of the 45s bagged on previous rambles around the record shops. Indeed, this was a timely venture, because the pending tray was getting dangerously overloaded.

So, with some squeals from the wheels of the Cruise Mobile, we set off on our cruise with Wynona Carr and one of her late 50s recordings for Specialty records, ‘Finders Keepers’, and with but a few words more, we found ourselves in the company of Eddie Daniels (with Eddie Cochran on guitar) and a fine piece of rockabilly called ‘I Wanna Know’. If that sounds good, we recommend you sit back and relax in the sumptuous comfort of the Cruise Mobile and enjoy the rest of our playlist:

For our ‘Girls & Guitars’ feature this week, the spotlight fell on Derba Farris, who leads her own Santa Barbara based band, which is well established around California. She’s been recording albums since 1998 and we picked a track, ‘Yellow Moon’, from her 2006 album ‘Gotcha Covered’.

But, all too soon, some familiar faces and places came into view, signalling that we were coming to the end of our cruise. So, as we finished with Billy Hambric’s ‘Flaming Mamie’, we were hoping that there had been plenty in our playlist to tantalise your musical tastebuds. If so, then perhaps you’ll be tempted to join us again next week, when we’ll call by for you in the Cruise Mobile, same time, same place, to take you Cruising with The Commissioner, but until then . . . . have fun!
