As a tribute to a great man, here is my favourite track – Gerry Rafferty – Waiting for the Day taken from the famous album City to City which went to No 1 in the Album charts in the US in 1978.

Gerry Rafferty (16 April 1947 – 4 January 2011) was a Scottish singer and songwriter. Most people remember him for the song “Baker Street”, but I still love this one – Give it a listen:-

Another new band that I keep hearing about, especially on Facebook are The Green Children. They are building up thousands of followers, so they must be doing something right. This is their track Black Magic (Part III). If you want to sing along, here are the lyrics:-

Flickering eyes in the dark No telling who is who
Still I know that these cold eyes They belong to you
Already crushed and forgotten What I came to do
And before I even know of it I am walking straight to you
Black Magic How do you do it Black Magic How do you do it

Locked in your encaging grip You hands are in my hair
Struggling to recall my past The memories disappear
Convinced by your whispers in my ear I follow by your touch
You must have put a spell on me Cause I want you way too much
Black Magic How do you do it Black Magic How do you do it

Stop, they are calling As I’m falling in love again
Numb by your charms and my weakened heart I’ve no choice but to surrender
How do you do it?

Your eyes in water, deep blue water Your lips are on fire, you challenge my desire
Your eyes in water, deep blue water Your lips are on fire, you challenge my desire
Your Black Magic Black Magic How do you do it Black Magic How do you do it
Black Magic How do you do it Black Magic Hey, hey Hey, hey Hey, hey How do you do it?

I thought it was about time that I had some more music on my music Site and when I came across this new band called The Dowsers, I thought I would give them a listen. As I enjoyed watching and listening to the band recording their track “The Last Call” at Kitchen Studio, I am sure that I saw the Korg Kronos being used in there and sounding excellent. Great Track – Great up and coming new Band – Have a listen see what you think, I think I will see what else they do. It would make an excellent CD if all the tracks were like this one:-
