Monday Isolation Blues

Start of another week of confinement its enough to given you the blues.

These old tunes remind me of Friday nights in London getting the tube from Ealing Broadway to Westbourne Grove near Notting Hill to the “Station Tavern” where resident blues band Shout Sister Shout played the blues for hours while gents in porkpie hats sat in the corner playing dominoes great atmosphere smokey boozy & fun.

Without the blues don’t think we would have had the richness & variety of music we have today.

Have a good week if your working, stay sane if your stuck at home most of all STAY SAFE !!!
