Let the Good Time Rock

  • Another summer solstice comes and goes, the days are getting shorter again, or so they say. Whatever, ya have to love these oscillations….

    Hey I just noticed it’s Sunday. let’s see, the sermon for today, courtesy of Dave Lavelle.

    This track and lyrics are testimony to the fact that the experience of Good Time and good music can and will be inversely proportional to the amount of cash (invented or otherwise) in circulation, the price of yer house and extension and the # of ryanair’s to costa del rave/year etc… but sure we all know that now, don’t we? ok ok…

  • I’m sure I saw the Honey Thieves many times, but one particular gig repeatedly appears in the auld memory. Some 2×4 stage in a small room upstairs in Capel Street, was it called the Capel something? The Capel Inn maybes? I don’t know why, but I have this memory of standing there with pint in hand as you do, somehow managing not to spill it as the mob pushes and bumps past and around you, watching the Honey Thieves giving it their all.

    Many years later, at a wedding in the county Kildare, I commandeered the iTunes in the wee hours and put this on. A certain, most excellent best man was possibly a little too “well” to take too much notice.

    Thanks for the best hospitality Dave, and for everything, for you and all the Honey Thieves, this is goin’ ouuuuuaout to youz!

    The Honey Thieves – Good Time

Happy Birthday Emily!

    Listening to this again right now, I’m amazing that this is really from the old Elektra studios on Crow Street!.

    Might fine production from Larry O2L .
