Lest We Forget

This year, as every year, we have lost some great musicians. Big names such as Bobby Womack, Phil Everly and Pete Seeger rightly received plenty of attention when they died. We would like to pay a small tribute to some of the less famous artists whose deaths you may have missed but who have left some great music behind.

So R.I.P. Rosetta Hightower, James Govan, Barbara Jones, Lapiro de Mbanga, Clive Palmer, Mighty Hannibal, Jo Jo Benson, Hopeton Lewis, King Kester Emeneya, Stephen Fromholz and Lynsey de Paul

"Remember Me" - Rosetta Hightower

"Help Me, I'm In Need" - James Govan

"Come And Get Some" - Barbara Jones

"Jolies Filles" - Lapiro de Mbanga

"Spirit Of Love" - Clive's Own Band (C.O.B.)

"Meet Me At Mary's Place" - The Mighty Hannibal

"Pickin' Wild Mountain Berries" - Peggy Scott & Jo Jo Benson

"Cool Collie" - Hopeton Lewis

"Milonga Kwango" - King Kester Emeneya

"A Little More Holy" - Stephen Fromholz


  1. Bless you, Chic. And belated birthday wishes to Mrs CC, by the way

  2. Just found out that Colin Bentley (Stoner from Doctors of Madness - also in T.V. Smith's Explorers) has died. Makes that October gig more poignant.
