Lilac Wine

I will not be imbibing tonight on account of having to drive into the town to see Allo Darlin' in the Captain's Rest. But may I suggest something sweet and heady for the rest of you drunkards out there.

I promise that this is the first and last time Jeff Beck appears on this blog. It could have been worse it could have been the Elkie Brooks version which I had to endure during my childhood my mother being a fan of Elkie's and once a record went on the music center in the living room it stayed there for months if not years.

I will however have not a word said against Pearl's A Singer. She stands up when she plays the piano, you know.

Have a good weekend people.

I'm not sure if I'll be scooping tonight. Went to see Chas Hodges at The Railway last night (he plays sitting down) - so slightly fuggy.

You can grab some early doors Elkie here along with Dave Essex doing Northern

I'm curious about this one. As you said, all I can think of is Elkie Brooks.
All the best

Elkie Brooks version of "Lilac Wine is sooooo the best version.

Anonymous - after listening to it again when doing this post I have to agree with you the Elkie Brooks version is the definitive one. Just hearing it so much when growing up sort of wasted it for me I think.
