Classic Rock Bottom


No one knows precisely when Fairs started.
They were primarily Commercial in nature, consisting of Agricultural Products and Animals.
They naturally crossed the ocean over here to the Colonies, and we've had them ever since.
You can find one almost any time of year.
The goal here is to Musically bring you All The Fun Of The Fair!

Yes I played Springsteen primarily for Jon, then ignored his reference to it, lol!
I think he does sing Soldier's Field while I too would bet it is Soldier Field.
But he also said speedball instead of fastball, which bothered me remember, lol!  
And right away, the Golden Pell to David Essex for All The Fun Of The Fair.
I hadn't thought of that song in years, it took this series to bring it back for me and glad I played it.
While in the city, we have Fairs of a much smaller nature, I have gone to a couple more rural and a lot better.
All the best memories of being a kid include sounds and smells- funny eh?
Add in rides, games and other stuff, no kid can resist!
So I understand yours.
Thanks for the listen and writing,

You do impress me with your buying David Essex, and sure, put that 18 cents on my tab, lol!
Despite my kidding you, it would seem you have a pretty good-sized collection- and like me, an openness to all kinds of music..
While I probably have the edge in 50's & 60's songs, you'd take me with the 90's & 2000's!
This was NOT a repeat, don't know why you thought so, it's a subject I never did before.
Nice couple of Scarborough Fairs there, I listened in reverse order.
Enjoyed the first, then the Brightman which was more traditional, but liked them both.
I'll file them away, since I played 3 versions on the show.
But check into that group Roundtable, put out a real good album in 1969, got into jazz, blues, etc.
It was a very good year, lol!
Oh, nice prediction on Renaissance, I gave it away with the title!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

So glad you played some Springsteen for Jon.  Did he say "Soldier's Field"?  I thought it was Soldier Field.  Anyway.  I'll give the Golden Pell to David Essex for All The Fun Of The Fair.

I loved the fair when I was a kid.  We had one downtown.  You had to drive down a four lane highway that had several overpasses.  Once you got to about the third overpass you could see all the lights and the double Ferris Wheel.  It was unbelievably exciting.  The smell.  The night air.  The rides.  The games.  I loved it.  

They still have that one downtown, but we don't go to it anymore.  It's not in the best area of town.  Now we go to the one in the county we live in.  It's not nearly as big, but the kids still love it.

Oh, and I was expecting Renaissance, but it should be on Part 2! Right????

So, a few months ago I was checking out some stuff on Amazon and came across the David Essex album for less than $3 new. It wasn't going to be available for about 6 weeks, so I saved it for later.

So, I hear the David Essex song in this show and remember I had that album saved, went to check and it was available. So I bought it. But now Amazon charges tax in MI so it's more expensive, by about 18 cents. Do you owe me 18 cents? I'm not sure, I will have to mull that over.

So, I've heard this show before, but there are a couple of other version I would like to share with you. I had to listen to them after having to sit thru Bruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce. But, it is what it is.

Here ya go!
