Howdy music lovers,
The full tale begins nearly 30 years ago (1985). Which is when I first heard
the song that turned out to be entitled “Lover.” Though at the time I had no
idea who wrote and was singing it. And therefore also didn’t know it was on
the album Last Dance On Saturday Night. Close to two decades later (I was still mainly living in Devon, England then), I finally went on the hunt for the singer/songwriter. And within a few months found him. A link to that complete back story is appended below. Just now, however, I want to concentrate on the man and his music.
And so with great pleasure I hereby present the entire album (for ages unavailable in any form). Specially internet designed and uploaded to YouTube by my good friend and colleague Bart Plantenga.
All ten songs play one after the other. But you can pause at any point, look to the right-hand menu, and select another track. While again below you’ll find separate links to each of the songs.
So here it is. The legendary Dick Damron’s classic album
Last Dance On Saturday Night
I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, over and over.
And do pass the link on to all your friends!
Cheers, EDDIEContinue Reading »
Hi there music and film lovers!
Whether doo-wop is your thing or not (although after this it probably will be!), here is one short film you’ll definitely want to see.

Now Michiel Brongers has posted his excellent 2008 film about Bill the DJ on the internet for all to see. For free. Ready for a wild ‘n woolly 15 minutes?Continue Reading »
