#246: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! There's an important deadline approaching this weekend when Sunday 18th slips into Monday 19th September at "Midnight Blue". That's the time when you will no longer be able to vote for the superb song "Rain" as written, produced and performed by Groucutt & Haynes in the YouBloom 2011 Music Awards, a competition wherein the winner will walk away with a £10,000 prize.
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] reviewed their debut album "Another Good Reason" [which, of course, includes "Rain"] back in May thus:
Yours Truly KJS reckons that there a not a few ELO [and Beatles] fans and admirers out there who would be thrilled to see local, talented musicians garner some acknowledgement for their efforts. I know that Kelly Groucutt [Rob's father] would be out there promoting them if he were still here with us. Please consider voting for this song and pass the message along by Facebook, Twitter or any other method! You can listen to and vote for their entry by clicking the link below:
