The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 115

Welcome to the 1951 Rolling Review Show which twice weekly features pieces of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know if you do.

“Dreams of You” – Ralph McTell

The wonderful Ralph McTell  released “Dreams of You” as a single in 1975. The melody was based on a piece of music by composer  J.S. Bach called “Jesus, Joy of Man’s Desiring”.

  1. Good choice. I haven’t heard anything by R McT in a long time – this was a great reminder of his talent.

  2. “Streets of London” fame! Saw him perform at the Peterborough Folk Club in the late 60’s. It was interesting because he needed to borrow a hard shell guitar case to tap his foot on while playing sitting on a high stool! Has done a number of really nice songs – “Nanna’s Song”, “Eight Frames a Second”, “Sleepy Time Blues” etc etc. Great choice Chris! 🙂
