Another groovy old find from a cassette. Much earlier that the one yesterday. I am 6 my sister 5 and my brother 3. It was recorded on a reel to reel by a man who hung a microphone in the middle of our dinning room. Mum and Dad were recording a few songs to make a record for charity and thought it would be nice for us to sing on one.  I sang verse one, sister verse 2 and brother verse 3 (quite a feat at the age of 3!). The reel to reel is long gone, and I found the cassette which has always had a little edit on it as I think we did a few takes, and brother had much more interesting things to do than sing ….I mean when your three. there are toys to play with! I had another go at editing it (only my family will notice)

This photo is the only photo we have of us pre-performance. We once  did a big concert in Wigan  -Mum and Dad’s hometown ( probably about the time we sang  yesterday’s rendition of Deck the Halls). I think that might have been our swan song gig too!

Once again, a link for those with fancy ipaddy things….
