Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames! Man, I thought that I was the only one who still remembered that guy (he's actually collaborated with Van Morrison on a few occasions - stuff from the 90s).

Will: Thanks for stopping by! I got turned on to Georgie Fame back in the 80s when I used to listen to oldies stations as a kid.

I didn't realize Georgie worked with Van the Man in the 90s... thanks for the info.

If you haven't already, I hope you can check out my second blog (which deals with race-related issues):
