What Wondrous Love" Melanie

Post by Gmemg » Tue Dec 12, 2017 3:42 pm

For the last couple of weeks i have, most days been sorting records in a barn in a field, it's been long, hard and cold work despite a patio heater being there records get very cold and retain that cold so it's been rather a thankless task - i have found some gems ! but overall it's been difficult and dirty

Yesterday i went there and switched on a radio left by the owner and found that instead of the interesting "letters from America" i was listening to some sort of Radio 4 Religious lecture - I later found that the Radio was tuned to Radio 4 LW rather than FM but i'm rather glad that it was as i heard the tune below for the first time and actually recognised the voice

I first Heard Melanie interviewed on Woman's Hour whilst i was driving somewhere - i hadn't heard of her before and when they played "brand new Key" i laughed and said :

"Stupid Cow's singing the wrong Words - it should be I Got a Brand New Combine Harvester .............."

when next visiting my parents i mentioned this only for them to know her - they met her in the 1960's and my father had actually chatted her up on "ready Steady Go" the then Pop music show - i had the Horror of imagining some sort of Hippie Pop Star being my ,mother .........The Horror, The Horror

Anyway i heard this yesterday and found it very moving

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
