Blurb Bulletin

#50: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My good friend Jane Wilkinson has kindly sent me a copy of her new book "An Evening Without Kelly Groucutt" published via Blurb! It's a photographic record of the event held at The Robin 2 in Bilston, near Wolverhampton on Monday 11th May celebrating the Main Man: Kelly Groucutt - his music, his musical influences and acquaintances. This 38-page book has a series of high quality pictures of the entire roster of artistes, together with the songs they performed and who appeared on the bill in this order:

Keith Slater ~ Groucutt & Haynes ~ Gary & Darren Groucutt ~ Session 60 ~ Chris Tew ~ The Groucutt Family Band ~ Will Green ~ Mondo Carne ~ Chris Groucutt, Robin Groucutt & Mik [Kaminski] ~ Danny King & The Old Sills Band ~ Chris Groucutt ~ The Everlys Experience ~ Danny Cannon & The Vibras ~ The Electric Light 'Orkidstra' ~ Phil Bates & Mik Kaminski ~ The Orchestra [former members of ELO & ELO Part II]
In the opinion of Yours Truly KJS, this book is a wonderful memento of not only a great musical night but also a tremendous souvenir of the life and times of one of the greatest bass guitarists and rock musicians that ever graced this planet. Jane Wilkinson's photography beautifully captures the mood and atmosphere of the night. This fantastic book can be purchased in hard &/or soft cover, from Blurb! via this link thus:

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends "An Evening Without Kelly Groucutt" by Jane Wilkinson to those enlightened folks who also like ELO, Jeff LynneRoy Wood'Brum Beat'The Idle RaceThe MoveThe Beatles and related artistes.

 Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 24-July-2009
