Back in the day- probably influenced by the Pub Rock Scene..i found Rock n Roll..a boozer called the Cocked Hat hosted such nights and a pianist with a glass eye used to bounce it off his piano!
Saw Marty a few times and caught Billy Fury at a coal miners club..right near his end.

Bit of a refreshing change from listening to endless Cream 25-30 minute 'blow outs' courtesy of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker and Jimi Hendrix's guitar 'burning pyrotechnics' and 'whaling feedback drenched' songs is Marty Wilde's innocent 'pop songs' from the late 1960s from this original 1950s British rock & roller and father to Kim Wilde 1980s female singing sensation.

Two songs in particular hit the rewind memory button that were hit singles in the UK over 50 years ago the first song is Abergavenny from 1968 and the second song is Jesamine from 1969 which for people of a certain age (60+ and above) in the UK conjure up the late 1960s when the world was still young and a whole lifetime lay ahead.
