There's always room on the Pickled Egg Jukebox for an uplifting tune...

and seeing as today is the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force what better than the March Past
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Air ... March_Past

The "Royal Air Force March Past" is the official march of the Royal Air Force (RAF) and is used in some other Commonwealth air forces.

The original score was completed by Walford Davies in 1918 for the new RAF; it combined the rhythm of the bugle call of the Royal Flying Corps with that of the Royal Naval Air Service. The call appears in both the introduction and the coda. It was originally known as the Adastral I (in reference to the RAF's motto). The second part of the march past, the trio, was composed by Sir George Dyson.

As we're on the subject of the RAF, here's a youtube clip of some film that took a long time to see the light of day. It was filmed back in 1987 during one of the graduation ceremonies at RAF Cranwell and it includes a couple of Phantoms. Suffice to say, the RAF weren't very impressed with one of the pilots, and his flying career paused for a while after this incident. Watch and enjoy :-D

Celtic Woman's other 2 appearances at the Pickled Egg, "Caledonia" sung beautifully by Lisa Kelly and The Water is Wide by Orla Fallon
Thanks Neil, beautiful tracks, particularly the latter; that one I've added to my Spreadsheet (which is behind my Youtube Playlists).

I've also made a Memo to browse the Pickled Egg 'Back Catalogue', there's some good stuff here! :-D

When the Pickled Egg Jukebox was going through its "Monopoly" theme Bobins posted up

This

Well here is the original



and the aforementioned "Electric Avenue"..... refers to Electric Avenue in the south London district of Brixton which was the first market street to be lit by electricity. Head over to POTD for a pic!

I thought was common knowledge (unlike the "Electric" the 1st cinema to be so lit - at least in Torquay!) - surely you didn't think it was just a catchy little number by the unequalled ex-Equal?

Electric Avenue wasn't 1m miles from my s/h tyre shop of choice for several years so, I suppose, my slant on its fame is more of a local one.

Pickled Egg Jukebox-its a Disco Night!

Post by NewcastleFalcon » 06 Apr 2018, 20:11

As perfectly trailed by the last track played on TB's Golden Hour tonight...

The Isley Brothers of course. There are better audio versions of the track, but time to dust off some of those moves!
