    It's nearly midnight here, so I can say this was posted on another day to fit in with this Season's rules. Basically if I don't post this last song of mine for this week now, then I won't be able to ever. We are going on a hiking break tomorrow, staying at a mountain refuge and then further walking on Sunday. So this is my last chance to post.

    This song has both the desert and blistering heat in it. It is a synopsis, in song, of a chapter from my (unpublished) novel "The Warrior". The book is based on the wartime adventures of an old Spanish Republican I met in my early days in Catalonia. He saw service in the Republican army and then with the collapse of Catalonia he fled into France, was imprisoned in a concentration camp and after many hair raising adventures was shipped to Algeria to fight with the French Foreign Legion. What happened to him next is told in this song.

    I fully intend to publish the trilogy of which "The Warrior" forms the final book, sometime in my early retirement - even if I have to accept digitally publishing it on some obscure website.

    Meanwhile, here is a taster in song:



    PS it is five minutes long - because there is a lot of story to tell.

    This is an XTC song called "Summer's Cauldron".

    Hello Andy, thanks for hosting! This theme is great, though I must admit it has been harder than I expected to find songs, not to mention time to learn and record one This song caught my attention when it was played last night at our monthly ukulele meetup. It's an Iz song called White Sandy Beaches.

    I think we need this song to be in the season.

    Late one for me. Been a long day. So here's a Blind Willie McTell song I stumbled upon a few weeks ago.


    "Even on a cloudy day, I'll keep my eyes fixed on the sun"

    "But I heard voices, Not in the head, out in the air, they called to me. Through record speakers, through thick and thin, they found a shelter, beneath my skin"

    This is an instrumental from Jeff Wayne's 1978 musical version of H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds", arranged for Kiwaya K-Wave concert ukulele and electric kazoo. I'm only sorry that the tiple didn't work out for the middle section.
