Crossroads Goes Normal – so that’s normal?

I Went to the Crossroads Blog 29th May 2011

Hi, my Sunday evening chums – a “normal” Crossroads this week with a collection of new, old and very old. A track from Robbie Robertson’s latest waxing – 5 years in the waiting, a 1948 big hit from fussy old Bull Moose Jackson, a couple of over-40’s big numbers – the magnificent Sheffield windmill, Joe Cocker’s big hit and the lovely Bell Bottom Blues from Eric Clapton. Two extra special tracks by Cherry Lee Mewis, who appears at the Keighley Blues Club on the 10th June, finishing off with the delightfully barmy, Crossroads’ favourite – Seafood Department Blues – “there’s something fishy going on”!
