Jock has been a regular Shed frolicker for the best part of a year now. Always fun to have around. She's belted out stellar vocal contributions to Dawson's 'It Ain't Right', and Tony Green's 'You And The Blues'.
Yarni, Jock's husband, works in Canberra, comes to The Shed when he can. Good guy. We hand him a beer and a bass and he smiles..... happy Yarni.
Some time back, Yarni and Jock let slip that they had an original up their sleeve............ 'Mama Told Me So'.
We were curious. Fooled about with it a bit, liked what came out, decided that next time Yarni was in The Shed we'd hit record, see what happened.
|John on keys, Manny on guitar|
Last week, Yarni was available for two Seshes in a row. Opportunity knocks. We dragged out Mama, shaped it up, knuckled down, got serious, and .........
THIS is what came out.
What a ripper ! Go Jock ! WooHoo !
The title says it all. It's about all the good advice that mums dole out..............advice we sometimes ignore. And what do you know? Mostly, later on, we figure Mama was right after all. Should have listened.
We had a ball with Mama Told Me So. Jock sang her heart out, and Yarni nailed the bass. John Drews laid down a hip Hammond groove, and Mick threw in a dollop or two of tasty harp.
The great guitar chops belong to Manny Aigner. Manny's very new to the Shed........he'd hardly arrived when this happened. Welcome aboard the good ship PBGB Manny !
Go team Mama......... that was fun !
