Have You Ever Had it Blue?

It's Friday night and after dancing around the room to the latest Rockabilly number at Swiss Adam's place it is time to relax with some stripped back Americana.
And who better to provide same than Paul Burch and the WPA Ballclub.
Pour yourself a large one, sit back and let the music of  Blue Notes wash over you
His third album released in 2000 on Spit and Polish a division of Glasgow's very own Shoeshine Records run by Francis McDonald.
I was 95% sure that I had seen him live and sure enough a quick rummage through my ticket tin confirms that I saw him on Monday 7th May 2001 in the Tron Victorian Bar paying £5 for the pleasure

Paul Burch & the WPA Ballclub - Forever Yours

Paul Burch & the WPA Ballclub - Tonight, Tonight


  1. Paul Burch - great voice, and those early albums are just splendid. And in my hectic schedule finally got round to yesterday's music, also good.

  2. Sorry, no rockabilly tonight. Drawn a blank this week.
    Swiss Adam

  3. Great storyteller and a great singer, two excellent tracks today CC...

  4. I believe that (ahem) 'back in the day' (please kill that phrase), when I'd just got a PC and realised you could copy music (what an amazing thrill that was - no joke when you'd spent nearly all your disposable income on the stuff for about 40 years - this album was one of the very first I nicked from my local library (original returned, of course). I picked it up because of his brief Lambchop connection. It's great. Will now have to dig the CDR out of the vault. Many apologies for all the brackets but it happens with me (sometimes).
