My feeble attempt at documenting my record collection and music obsession.
I was so amused to stumble on Miniver and White Knight. As the sole English major of T.O.N.K, I will take credit -- or blame -- for the literary leanings of these cuts. I in truth wrote all the lyrics and the bulk of the music on the latter. Young and naughty as I was, I amused myself with 'Knight' by penning a (very) thinly veiled extended metaphor of...how shall I put it...carnal knowledge. As I recall, my main goal was to write a song that would enable me to play a harpsichord in the studio. Mission accomplished. Alas, Vic De Lucas, Miniver's lead singer and solo guitarist (and later dental surgeon), is gone. So is Jim Murphy, rhythm guitar and great rock vocalist himself. Anyway, thanks for providing me this chance to hear this again after so very many years -- for I have no copies of the Jamie 45. I'll be sending this link to my daughter in London, to prove to her (maybe) that, once upon a time, her father was not boring. Incidentally, we were a Philly band. Best,Frank Dineen
Thank you for sharing. I am glad you had a chance to listen to this again. One of my favorite pick ups over the past year
