I’ve been away rather a while. Sorry. Let’s get going again.
An opener from The Sandals full of surf rock sunshine. Oof, those sixties summers… I was there, you know. In the very same 1966 that The Sandals soundtracked ‘The Endless Summer’ I was listening to tune number two here. I watched ‘The Trap’ at the Reigate Majestic just after turning fifteen. A simmering affair of a film in spite of its Canadian cold setting. I still find myself humming Ron Goodwin’s theme music. The main reason for that is that it’s been revived and sustained in my memory ever since 1981 when the BBC used it to underpin their live coverage of one of our iconic sporting festivals. You should recognise it in that context even if you don’t go back as far as Oliver Reed, Rita Tushingham and me. Heck…none of you is as steaming well old as me, are you.
Please don’t miss the inimitable (unless you include Florence Foster Jenkins) Mrs. Miller who is sandwiched between, among others, the lounge-lizardly lovely Jeff Goldblum and a sultry, touched-by-torch-song Grace Jones.
Great to be with you again.
Serious plans to supply another Cooker very soon. But you know how badly I do serious. Let’s see.
Oh… but let’s listen first.
