Alan Bain Music Songs & Piano [Nov. 14th, 2006|11:01 am]

[Current Mood |nostalgicnostalgic]

Received from Trevor CD (Audio Recording) of late lamented brother Alan doing what he did when I was young - playing the piano. I recall dad chopping up the piano in my youth along the words "That Boogie Woogie has to go". I don't think our piano in Rainham was ever in tune but never mind :-)

Behind the tag is a scanned image from the CD Cover and a link to Track 3 on the recording in MP3 format (about 4 minutes 12 seconds) labeled "Fools Rush in - Baby Doll" being two piano pieces combined in one.

According to Trevor the photo was taken in the 1970's when Alan lived in Hartcliff Bristol - the decade the music was recorded

Link to Track 3 (MP3) Fools Rush in & Baby Doll

On my system this fires up Internet Explorer and then plays (streams) the MP3 track in Windows Media Player without problems. An alternative is to right click on the link and save to target and play with an appropriate MP3 audio player. (3.87MB)

I thank Trevor for this moment of nostalgia (Alan was playing and composing music when I was but a toddler). He never made it "big time" but became familiar with a handful of people who made the "big time" (if but for a short period of time). Music recorded in Clifton Bristol circa 1970 (BBC Audition)

that's amazing! your brother was quite a good performer - the style reminds me a little of George Shearing. i've saved the track to my mp3 collection; thank you!
