Tall Ships Day 3

I think it may be four or more decades since I first heard the Mississippi Dreamboats when they had a residency in Tynemouth. I was sorry to see them give up their regular gig at The Bell and Bucket in North Sheilds a little while ago.  It was pleasing  to find them playing better than ever in Blyth today. Could not stop long as parking was difficult. 
Another guy taking snaps was non-other than Cliff Soden, bass player and professional photographer. Oliver Soden's son Cliff is back living in Blyth and  was at the gig on his cycle. A man in the style of Lance!! 
Cliff gave me a copy of the last CD he made when he lived in Germany:-
Review later and hopefully some pro pics from Cliff
