Good Morning Andy ! Consider your blog is now part of my morning read :)
A good list of memories! You now have my "earworm" ringing with the tunes from Fats Domino, Charley Pride, Willie Nelson, Little Richard, Harry Belafonte for sure and as for Petula Clarke's "Downtown ? "... you just took me back in time and gave me that homesick feeling. Ha !

I have taken some advice from lead guitarist of The Trekkers.

Thank you for suggesting putting up a list of our Senior Singers: Sixties Seventies.
