The Midweek Hop - A Vintage Wonderland

The other half's guest post - three songs on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')
'Balami S100' 1959 Jukebox

This weeks theme is...A Vintage Wonderland
Inspired by this week's Great Dorset Steam Fair
It starts today and runs until Sunday 1st September - hundreds of steam engines, an excellent funfair, side stalls and stages, all sorts of entertainment, vintage transport and thousands of shops and stalls to browse around. Come on down!
1. Out of Time by Chris Farlowe

Most of the exhibits at Great Dorset Steam Fair (and a fair few exhibitors!) are things that have run out of time in the modern world.
'Out of Time' entered the chart on 23rd June 1966 reaching Number 1.

2. Old Bazzar in Cairo by Clinton Ford and George Chisholm

Okay, so we usually don't quite have the warmth of Egypt but the sheer amount of stalls and variety of knick knacks for sale is just like an old bazaar!
'Old Bazaar in Cairo' is from Clinton Ford's 1968 comic album, 'Clinton the Clown' but was never released as a single.

3. I Am A Cider Drinker by The Wurzels

One thing that definately gets drunk a lot at the steam fair!
'I Am A Cider Drinker' entered the chart on 11th September 1976 reaching Number 3.

Happy listening!
