Get with it . . .

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

Well, our friends in France are welcoming their new leader after an intense and eventful election and the UK has it own national elections shortly too. So, there have been plenty of diversions and discussions to consume our thoughts and time. But, nothing was going to stop us being ready with a very warm welcome as we rolled by in the Cruise Mobile for this week’s Cruising with The Commissioner.

One of the joys of the week was revisiting the TV documentary about the famous Muscle Cruising #185Shoals recording studios and musicians. Just to prove that we were paying close attention, we dug out the first record cut in those now famous studios . . . . Arthur Alexander with ‘You Better Move On’. Knowing our Ambassador to The Islands is a bit of a fan of the Fab Four, we dug out a version of ‘Hey Jude’ by Toots & The Maytals which also may have pleased those amongst the Cruising Crew who like a little ska and reggae.

To get our musical adventure underway, we kicked off down the road with Artie Lewis & The Terry Tyler Orchestra and their 1958 Oklahoma 45 ‘Supposin’ . . . . then we were well on our way . . . .

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 and she’s got a new album out now, but we went back to her 2015 Live album, which included ‘Reason To Be’.

After clocking up plenty of miles on our cruise this week, we knew time had caught up with us when The 5 Royales took us right around the corner, but we managed to sneak in one more before we headed home, which we did in the very good company of Frankie Ford, Huey Piano Smith & The Clowns and ‘Roberta’. Then, we parked up the Cruise Mobile, and got ready to join Mr Merlot and The Cruisettes at the after show party, but not before giving a cheery wave to the Cruising Crew and very much hoping that we’ll have some more of their good company next week when we’ll call by in the Cruise Mobile, same time, same place, all ready to go Cruising with The Commissioner. Until then . . . . have fun!
