Singing the Blues

                                       Singing The Blues

Old Song Sheets

Once again a walk down my local high street Dorking in Surrey it never ceases to amaze me what you might find. As an avid fan of all the local Charity Shops I  always pop in to hope today is the lucky day to bag a bargain never sure of what i might find.

Down in Old Dorking or Memory Lane

Dorking being an old market town  from Doomsday and mentioned in the Doomsday book is renown for its famous Antique shops in West Street when you can find anything from an old Telephone to a suit of Armour. I prefer the cheap side except its not quite so cheap any more, Being Surrey even the charity shops have inflated their prices accordingly although nobody would begrudge them as its all for a good cause

In a folder tucked away on a shelf were these song sheets and relics from a bygone age, i figured i must be joining them as a relic when  I  recognised  Guy Mitchell  Singing The Blues as i used to listen to Capital Radio back in the 1970s when i came home from school often hearing the iconic sounds of the 1950s and 1960s so it caught my eye as i thumbed through the contents and guess it takes all down memory lane especially if you grew up in the 50s 60s 70s era

 For my parents generation even more iconic names would be recognisable for  sure.
