A Friday night record

So no comments for the Way of the West post. I can’t pretend I’m not disappointed, they are pretty good records after all. I know just the thing to get you all going. How about a record featuring Chas Jankel and Kenny Young, writers of ‘Ai No Corrida’ no less? Not that I would pretend these songs are in the same class but ‘Muchas Gracias’ is a ‘fun’ party record with an unmistakeable Chas feel and b-side ‘Limelight’ should really have been the a-side.

(Kenny Young/Chas Jankel)
Produced by Kenny Young, Chas Jankel, Chris Warwick

The Pack - Limelight (1981)
(Kenny Young/Herbie Armstrong)
Produced by Kenny Young

Most definately agree the b side is the stronger...and judging by that,this I assume is the same Kenny Young of 'Under The Boardwalk',Clogagh Rogers,Mark Lidsay's 'Arizona' and Yellow Dog fame.

The very same. I meant to include this link in the post.

I met Clodagh Rogers once during a recording of 3-2-1 at YTV in 1978. Very freckly.

Oh, and interesting post by the way.

BrotheRay will be jealous. Men of a certain age love Clodagh Rogers and he is that age. I heard her on the radio when Eurovision was on and she said she got booed by some sections for representing Royaume Uni.

She won Dusty Bin by the way!

I think she fell victim of the 1970s evening dress. Light entertainment ensnared her. These days, she's be glammed up in fake tan and Hunter wellies - to go with the spangled hotpants.

In Monty Python's Flying Circus, 'The Cycling Tour', Mr Gulliver (Terry Jones) is convinced that he is Clodagh Rodgers.

I completely forgot you were back blogging Mick.

There have been a few false dawns Lee but I'm determined to keep it up this time.

Loving the site, but gutted that I seem to have discovered it now that it's finished. Some of the earlier links don't work either, which is a shame. If anyone knows if Mick has a new site, please post a link so I can start following him, thanks, p
