posted a comment on Scrapper Blackwell - Longtime Blues. over 5 years ago
Back cover says 'Scrapper is 65 years old' so I guess you can work out the approx date. He was born in 1903 (wikipedia) so release date c 1962.

This song is strongly related to British musical traditions. It is also a 'vulgar' song which takes delight in the most lowly of work. Sung in front of the HRH Queen Elisabeth at a televised Royal Variety performance it it shocked and delighted me... See full review

The implication, to working class youth at least, was that when he stammered: "F..F...F... fade away!" what he would really say is "FFFuck off" which is what most of us wanted to say a lot of time. Even more amazing to hear it on TV.

This was a subversive record because on the B side of this syrupy pop of Heartbeat is a heavy dub agit disco track Live as One. I've rated this side 4 stars.

This is really experimental music but made by a group of friends in the Durham Ox pub in Leicester.
It is an artwork piece.

This was a sensation amongst (London) youth at the time of its release because it had a chorus of "Oh yeh Do you wanna bunk-up?" which at the time was the rudest thing we'd every heard on a hit record. Perhaps the record execs just didn't know what... See full review

Along with DAT these are "paradoxical stories of poverty disguised as comedy tunes". Much loved performer.

Pooka could be magic to hear live, as I did several times at Andy Allan's acoustic Easycome club in Stuart Arms in Peckham Rye. Whimsical and sensitive, with creative dynamics and interesting lyrics.

cover of the Temptations song. For reggae fans 'pop tripe'. Nice photo of them on the picture cover though.
