    Tommy, please forgive me. I don't see the connection to the theme - names or 67. Please indicate. Thanks! Linda

    According to wiki ...
    "Rocky Top" is an American country and bluegrass song written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant in 1967 and first recorded by the Osborne Brothers later that same year.

    Now it looks as if it never processed...the title is there on my YT account, but no video. So, sometime later this week, I will try again.
    What a coincidence! We're camping in Dorset at the moment (only got a tent though).

    Managed to sneak my Dolphin into the car but the songs I want to do aren't particularly suited.

    Still gonna try to bring something while we're here though Linda, if only to show off the great setting!

    Ryan, hope you have a super time camping! And, of course, some uking around the campfire. I'm hoping you'll find a song for us.

    Hi, Linda! Wanted to bring this before everyone else decided to do it, and far better than me! This has to be THE anthem of 1967 and the "Summer of Love". (Mitigating circumstances .... I AM wearing a flower in my hair and also my bellbottoms; although you'll have to take my word for that!)

    This got as high as number 3 in the UK charts in August '67. Written by late greats Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane. Apologies, It's written as Itckykoo when of course it's Itchycoo. By the way, please don't feed ducks with buns. It's just not good for them


    By the way, I recorded Bari uke and a bit of backing vocal on my daughters iPad, then just played that back and played along with the Flea,....and sang, obviously, recording it onto my iPad.

    Need to get yourself a RISA solid/stick uke, (& mini amp), for when you 'aren't allowed to take a uke'.
