Brand new SIMPLY DYLAN footage recorded at the Echo
Auditorium celebrating Bob's 75th Birthday.
In tribute to Graham Evans the band left the microphone free and played along to a mini disk recording of Graham playing the Old Grey Whistle Test's theme song. The recording from the 1990s sounds as vivid and clear as ever and is a fitting tribute to Graham's musicianship. The clips are a mixture of the footage from the Cavern plus some older clips of Groundpig performing (originally Groundhog) and demonstrates the fun and laughter that epitomised the band.
John was delighted to have supported Gordon Haskell at the beginning of December. Gordon formerly of Fleur de Lys and King Crimson turned the music industry upside down when his song How Wonderful You Are enjoyed chart success and went on to become the most requested song on BBC Radio 2.
I am old. It is the only small and miserable advantage I have over the mighty John O'Connell and his remarkable ensemble of musicians in SIMPLY DYLAN. For I am so old that I was there when my first and only hero, Bob Dylan, played Liverpool on the first Saturday in May 1965 and that electric night in May, 1966.ere.
