I’m On My Way . . .

Posted: September 28, 2016 in Hear This . . . . !

Listen here to this week’s Cruising with The Commissioner:

Well, here’s hoping that all has been well with you in your corner of the universe this past week. It has been a busy week here, with much traveling in excellent company, with plenty of sunshine and some great moments along the way. Not surprisingly, our travels Cruising #67uncovered some musical moments too, not all of which have found their way into this week’s playlist, but there’s plenty to maximise your enjoyment quotient.

Now, there was some sad news this week, because we got the sad news of Joe Clay’s passing . . . . so we did a little tribute to him with a few songs from his catalogue, including his first release, ‘Duck Tail’ and a few others. But, before that, we started off our musical adventure this week in the company of Big Walter Price & His Thunderbirds with their 1956 recording on Peacock Records of ‘Pack Fair & Square’.
