Don’t forget to order ahead

Graham Dalley   Hollick & Taylor Records   (1966)   Recorded live at The Barn, a restaurant in Birmingham, England.   Sappy organ music like ‘ ‘Sayonara’, “Meet Me in St. Louis” and “The Folks on the Hill’     And sappier liner notes like “It was a great night out. The food and the wine and the mood and the music; you’re going to store it all away in some sweet corner of life’s memories to hold against less magical moments when you want to recall the rosy glow of friendliness and warmth which is the essence of our fare. At any rate, that’s how we hope you feel.”   But, give it up for the inspired front cover – which is why we’re here after all.
