I think you've set the bar a little high there. That lot include Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper. It's like my twentieth century hall of fame. To be much better it would have to include a few folk that had already died when that was recorded. Cheers Ovalteeny I'm now going to watch the rest of the concert on YT.

Smudge & Foxy, I came across it via Steve Croppers Facebook Page. When I saw it I thought wow, I wasn't even aware that such a concert had occurred. By the way, a couple of years ago I went to The Playhouse in Alnwick to see John Steele's Animals with special guest - Steve Cropper. So there we are in Alnwick, a couple of hundred locals turning up to see a couple of guys who had been in The Animals (plus a couple of able Dep's), then at the start of the second half of the show they bring out The Colonel. It was spine tingling, fascinating, as he took a few minutes before each number to explain how he wrote each song with Otis Redding or Eddie Floyd et al. It is in my Top 10 gigs of all time. Privileged and grateful.

By the way Smudge & Foxy, do either of you know who the guitarist was/is in the green suit, acting as MD in this video.

I believe he could be G.E. Smith, who was Dylans lead guitarist for several years, but I saw him first with Hall & Oates at the Oxford Apollo in 1982/83 and he impressed me with his playing then. Can either of you confirm my guess?

I like this one from 1987 Grammy Awards. Hell of a backing band, never mind the chosen singers.

Quite simple, the Band was put together for one special performance at the 1987 Grammys.

If you look at the musicians behind the featured, front-line singers & players you'll see the likes of Ry Cooder.

Here's another one to watch out for - Wintergatan (The Milky way)!

Totally blown away by what this local group has to offer! Watched a 1½ hour live show at Göteborgs kulturkalas (Gothenburg Culture Festival)) last night. The marble machine (Google it, if haven’t already seen it) wasn’t on stage. Apparently there are too many problems with dried out elastic bands and escaping marbles but a new machine is in the making that will be able to withstand the trials and tribulations of being ‘on-tour’. I look forward to that!

They’ve just started touring outside of Sweden – Germany earlier this year – but keep an eye out for them.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
