Believe it or not, "my" now seriously defunct blues band used to end the official part of their set with "Whole Lotta Rosie", with the brass announcing Angus's iconic riff before the rest of us pitched in:

"Mary Skeffington" is another cover to be played at the forthcoming party, this time as a keyboard solo by yours truly. Gerry Rafferty's Can I Have My Money Back? is one of my wife's favourite albums.

Marc Cohn's "Walking In Memphis" is another song we performed at that party. I learned it from an MP3 sent me by my fellow-performer and now I'm listening to the original version for the first time!

Going back to Midnight Blue, the first band I played in (with my brother on lead guitar), The Animals' "For Miss Caulker" (basically a vehicle for keyboard player Alan Price) was pretty well the only track where I could actually be heard (my acoustic piano was unmic'd). My piano intro was unaccompanied--after that I was inaudible again. Sleep

This one popped into my head a few days ago. Randy Crawford's "One Day I'll Fly Away" was in the repertoire of the professional band when I joined in 1988. At my audition they were impressed with the fact that I played all the fiddly strings bits during the verses. Hair-raising times--that band taught me a lot about how to make music onstage.
