Been away for a week visiting my daughter but forgot to pack a harp so I'm just catching up. I've been following the thread but not doing much listening. I will have to have a catch up on all the tunes being posted.
Meantime, here's a B from me: Bright Eyes. Solo on a Seydel De Luxe Steel in G. Just need the button once for an accidental
Just seen this. Here's to a speedy recovery Sarge and glad your gig went OK. Spent my afternoon in a pub session today. Great time.

Chuck Berry was one of the best. I never saw him live but I've seen him several times on TV - videos of complete concerts, one relatively recently with his son playing bass and to say he was in his 80s he was still in great form.
I also remember seeing the clip of him playing Sweet Little Sixteen in Jazz on a Summer's Day - a film of the Newport Jazz Festival. He really woke the audience up at a time when they seem to have gone to sleep. The clip is on You Tube and someone posted it on Facebook the other day. It's still magic even after all these years - and he had some Jazz greats playing along with them - just listen to the clarinet solo in the middle, brilliant.
A fantastic performer and a great songwriter.
