Free Download: BGO Tribute to Davy Jones

#475: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Although Sunday 30th December was rightly celebrated for being the 65th birthday of ELO maestro Jeff Lynne, it also would've been the 67th birthday of Davy Jones, but sadly The Monkees lead singer passed away on 29th February 2012. You may also recall from this ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) article on Sunday 25th November that Michael Laine Hildebrandt from ELOBF endorsed Bubble Gum Orchestra had gotten together with Les Farrington of Sugarbomb fame to produce a cover (and video) of Davy's US hit "Girl" thus:

"Girl" was indeed formally released on Sunday 30th December and can now be downloaded for free from the BGO website. Here's the video for "Girl" to peruse at your leisure:
Yours Truly KJS thinks that you will agree with me that this new recording is a fine tribute to Davy Jones and his musical legacy. KJS/ELOBF recommends "Girl" by Bubble Gum Orchestra and Les Farrington to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO/Jeff LynneRoy WoodThe Move'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 03-Jan-2013
