Opening Lines

“I still believe in Sunday….as being a day of Rest….”

The Opening lines to the Gilbert O’ Sullivan single “January Git”

The single appears on the album “Himself” – O’Sullivan’s Debut composed in 1973 – a significant year for me, as it was the year I was born

It’s a really jazzy number full of clarinets and trombones, and Dad still has the original sleeved edition in his collection of Old Vinyl LP’s – and even though he’s been dragged kicking and screaming into the age of the I-pod it still gets an airing on the turntable..

And in true fashion unlike your MP3’s there’s no hiding – as you can hear every crackle on the vinyl, coming from the Needle of the turntable.

As for the sentiment – i’m posting this having just arrived back from my duties at my local RC Church – Day of Rest ? You have to be kidding!
