Hard to believe this one is getting on for 30 years old already! One of ABC lesser known hits from their Alphabet City album in 1987 – made No1 in France but only reached 31 in the UK.
Kon Kan were a Canadian duo who rather liked sampling earlier hits from the 70’s including Lynn Anderson’s Rose Garden. This was their only UK top 40 hit and it reached No 5 in 1988.
And finally, following the unfortunate early death of David Bowie, here’s a track he recorded with The Pat Metheny Group for the film The Falcon & The Snowman. It made no 14 in the UK in 1985.
Had a great time at Coventry last weekend. Excellent mix played by Big Dave from the easier ones through the more intermediate and some I’d never even heard of! Maggie G taught Locklin’s Bar, Sax, Second Hand Heart and a brand new one to Lawson’s Up In Flames. They were the band who recorded the song for her recent dance, Roads.
First time we had seen Daniel Trepat from Holland. He taught I Don’t Want To Go To Bed and Grown (Little Mix). Sheets for these are now on the Copperknob website.
Have already booked to return next November.
