Forever Changes?

4 Comments

Here’s a different, more bohemian trio, more ‘folky’ to begin with but then moving into the Birdcage mod territory which back then (’65/’66) was always more varied and imaginative than it is often characterised today:

Isherwood & Wenham.jpg

The Railway ‘Ballads & Blues’ Folk Club, early 1960s. Ted Wenham singing, Jon Isherwood on guitar and a harmonica player hiding (maybe Frank Hurlock?)

‘Banjo’ Stewart, embryonic mod playing some tune by some ‘good old boys’ perhaps?

1965? Maybe 1966? Looking cool. Tom (left) played harmonica in the Dave Clark movie Catch Us If You Can, and Jim (centre) was once a Hot Rod drummer. I know the boys (on right Bob Dunford), but not the girls (anyone?) I think I’ve asked before

  1. you don’t often see a left handed string bass player!

  2. Definitely Frank , he was married to my mum May Bartlett from about 1968 until their divorce , great Jazz record collection, also gave me the LP Pearl by Janis Joplin

    • Many thanks. I recall his record store above Orpheus in Marmion Road with all those old 78s. He found a cardboard sleeve from my grandfather’s shop in Granada Road (early 1930s) and gave it to me. Very kind – and still framed on my wall
