Skiffle live on the old Six-Five
27 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

As a member of an up and coming group, the Eden Street Skiffle Group, I was in one of the earliest 6.5 Specials. We had made recordings and appeared many times on radio's regular Saturday Morning Skiffle Club. Live TV was a different matter though. Five minutes before we were "on", Jack Good bustled up to us and announced that we had to cut 45 seconds - or it may have been 90 seconds - from the number we were about to perform. This was the bluesy Easy Rider, and we had a frantic 5 minutes or so removing verses.

There being no video recording in 1957 we never got to see the performance although I do have a recording of the opening of the show introduced by Pete Murray and Josephine Douglas, who announces above the rather noisy background of the live (dancing) audience: "You have just come in by way of Laurie Gold and his Pieces of Eight with Rampart Street Parade, and the Eden Street Skiffle Group with Easy Rider". Great fun it all was too.
