Maine Street Jazzmen at Rosie Malone's

Olive Rudd (vcl), Ray Harley (tpt), Jim McBriarty (clt/sop), Herbie Hudson (tmb/hca/vcl), Malcolm Armstrong (pno), Alan Rudd (bs), Mike Humble (dms).
A typical afternoon at Rosie 's with all the gang going for it. Herbie was in an impish mood - witness his vocal on Sunnyside of the Street; "I'm a rover, woof woof, who's crossed over"!
Olive, these days, seems to be rationed. Lock Away My Heart, Don't Mean A Thing, Hard Hearted Hannah were the few pearls she threw to us swine - we want more Olive. The petition will be going round next week.
Band numbers included Big Butter and Egg Man, Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone and the earthy C-C Rider with Herbie on harp and Jimmy on Soprano.
Another splendid afternoon.
Lance.
