Gotta get away from the busy man’s iphones….

Musical trivia time!  The bass player on this – Herbie Flowers – has two other claims to fame. One is he played bass on Lou Reed’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ and came up with one of the great bass hooks of all time.

Second claim is he wrote ‘Granddad’ for Clive Dunn. This was one of those novelty Christmas hits the Brits love so well   much  excessively.  It was a hit here too.

Loved both these songs when I was a kid. Now? I’m embarrassed about the Clive Dunn thing, but ‘Good Morning Freedom’ has aged better than it might have.

Off to the hills for a week. Good morning, freedom.
