Cheers for the positive shout outs- one day I’ll receive praise for my fretwork. In the meantime, I’m happy to join in the ‘entertainment ’:laughing:
As always, I’m looking forward to enjoy the whole show without the distraction of having to perform.
Cheers again to everyone for providing such precious memories :pray:

Hey All!!

I had to run straight after the close of the show last night but a big thanks and well done to all the performers.

It was my first time seeing one of these OMs live and direct and it was a thoroughly entertaining evening. I have to say how much I love the great positive community vibe here! It’s seems to me to be a pretty special place given all the issues normally associated on-line forum type places. We all deserve a pat on the back for keeping it a positive and uplifting place to play music!!

Thanks again to @Richard_close2u (who never seems to rest!) and, of course, to the host @JustinGuitar for EMCEEing and making it ALL possible. Looking forward to catching the next one and participating one day soon. Have a wonderful holiday season all!!

That’s also true for me, Jeremy. This community is a very special place. I’m so happy that I’ve found it and can be part of it :smiling_face:.

re: One Step Up

Lovely rendition yesterday of a fine song.

I think I first heard it on the album Love Is A Strange Hotel by Clive Gregson and Christine Collister.
Do you know that version or the album at all?

It is well worth a listen. Every song is a goodie.

@Jenndye429 I meant to say as well that I thought it was awesome to see your daughter and your friend’s daughter in the band. I hope they’re permanent members!!

Ta-dah.

Jackson Browne and Del Amitri, excellent so far. Thanks Richard, nice one.

Hey, guys. Is there a recording of yesterday’s OM? Sorry if I have missed any posting of it. Have a good week, all.

Brucie not sure of the timescale on the release but there will be one.

:sunglasses:

That takes me back!
Great duo, Home and Away was my favourite album of theirs, and also when they were part of the Richard Thompson band - Christine and Richard singing together live was always a treat.

There’s a young lass from Hull called Katie Spencer you should check out. Proper guitarist. Two albums out, Edge of the Land is the new one. She has a very similar voice to Christine Collister and is very influenced by the music of that period and John Martin, and she was mentored by and a friend of Michael Chapman

Re: the recording

It will have gone to Justin (as host) … I am following up

Can’t wait, didn’t get to see it live :roll_eyes:

Couldn’t make the live show, so I’m looking forward to the recording.

Also. Why does the header say 4th December (not livestream)? Have I missed that and the Christmas livestream bash on the 9th?

Gordon it should have been Livestream No 4 but due to “tech issues” could be streamed, hence (not Livestream) and as Zoom not Streamyard was used, it emulated a normal JGC OM. Hope that helps.
:sunglasses:

Thanks Toby all clear now. Not 4th but #4.
