Turning The Town Red
For my birthday Mrs CC very kindly and very thoughtfully got me a portable turntable.
So the muso room now presently houses not one, not two but three turntables!
A man can't have enough turntables.
The main purpose of the recent foray to the Oxfam music shop which I referred to last week was to stock up on vinyl.
Meagre pickings I'm afraid but I came away with three 12 inch singles.
First up is I Wanna Be Adored by Elvis and his Attractions.
A very good song and one that features on Goodbye Cruel World.
However the main reason for purchasing this one was to get my hands on Turning the Town Red a track I did not previously have.
UK readers with long memories and a love of trivia will remember this as the theme tune to Scully a TV series written by Alan Bleasdale where Elvis played the brother of the title character
