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”.
Good choice. I haven’t heard anything by R McT in a long time – this was a great reminder of his talent.
Hi there. He is one of the very best. Lovely songs and memories over the years.
“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! 🙂
Hi Colin. I’ve seen him play quite a few times over the years. A great performer. One of the best songwriters around. 🎸🎶
