    Hello again, Mads! This song comes from 1932 and was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic for singer and bandleader, Ray Noble, in a version recorded by South African singer, Al Bowlly. I found two verses for this after a lot of research, and then found out that they were not recorded in the original Al Bowlly version ... they are in MY version, though! As a matter of interest, I found them on this website, which I'd never seen before http://digitalcollections.baylor.edu...ection/fa-spnc (And apologies ... I didn't realise until I attempted to sing this at full volume that I am losing my voice.)

    I just checked, Ryan ... it's there for me; although it took a while to come up. I wonder if it's just coming up for me and no one else????

    GOOD! (You don't have to watch it, though!) Thanks, Ryan!

    I have been absent from posting for a while because I have been very busy getting all my ducks in-line for the premiere of a new swing trio I am in. (First gig on 21. January!)
    This involves A LOT of practice.
    I was standing in the corner with my metronome practicing this tune, but after a while, I set down my uke because I realised it was mid-week and I had no idea what the theme was for this week. (Not that I was going to have time to prepare anything, mind you, I just wanted to know what my fellow Seasonistas were up to this week.)
    When I saw the theme, I realised I could just point and shoot at exactly what I was doing minutes ago in the corner of my room.
    So I did just that.

    Here is a little interlude, relating to both Ryan’s season last week and this one. Amy Winehouse with a very jazzy acoustic version of Back to Black.



    And now we are back...

    I saw that Cee Jay beat me to posting this one, but I was already working on it, so here is my rendition of St. James Infirmary. Multi track ukulele and accompaniment by Band in a Box on bass and drums.



    Hope you like it.
