The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 7


We all have a musical backdrop to our lives which extends from the cradle to the grave. The great pianist, composer and conductor Alberto Semprini used to host a light music programme on BBC radio called Semprini Seranade. He always introduced his musical selection with the words: “Old ones, new ones, loved ones, neglected ones”. 

This then is the The 1951 Rolling Review Show which each week features a piece of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know and please feel free to Reblog.

A Small Fruit Song (Al Stewart)

This is a brilliant song by Al Stewart from his album Zero She Flies released in 1970. Al Stewart played at the first-ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, knew Yoko Ono before she met John Lennon, shared a London flat with a young Paul Simon and hosted at the Les Cousins folk club in London in the 1960s.

  1. Nice song about the miscegenation of fruits. I also admire that record player of yours. Never skips and has no scratchy sounds.
