Nearly four years ago I made what I thought was a throwaway post featuring a Youtube video of a harmonica band. Since then there have been several comments from guys who starred in the Morton Fraser Harmonica Gang in the 1960s, and their relatives and friends.
Having attended several NHL conventions I know what a weird and quite wonderful collection of people this humble instrument attracts.
The latest comment, from John Jackson only serves to emphasise that I just didn’t know what would happen when I made that original post. The comments section reads like a soap opera! It has revived old memories and reunited old friends.
That one short post makes the whole endeavour of blogging not just worthwhile but an absolute joy.
I’m sure I have posted this clip before but it is great, and well worth a repeat on so many levels. This is the Morton Fraser Gang on the Edmundo Ros show in the infancy of TV.
