All this spring sunshine has once again emphasised the dust and grime of the winter, so MWNN has declared this to be the start of the Great Spring Clean Week. I notice though that, he's been remarkably silent in his endeavours downstairs, and have just spotted that he's busy watching the Semi-Finals of the European Rugby. So, having done the windows, mirrors, curtains and surfaces upstairs, I'm now off to have a soak in the tub.
ETA at 18.10 Listened to The Hollies Greatest Hits while in the bath. I remember being distraught when Graham Nash left to join Crosby and Stills (and later, Young). But the group's sound didn't change radically, although I missed his high harmonies. Listening to the couple of tracks (from the '71-'73 era) that are without the voice of Alan Clarke, however, is something else. They are just another group, ordinary, no magic The sound of the Hollies is Alan's voice. It's a bit like thinking of Simply Red without Mick Hucknal, The Rolling Stones sans Mick Jagger, The Kinks without Ray Davies Roxy Music without . . . well you get the picture! - Just sayin' -
