Slip Fingers O'Reilly

Not much found about Mr O'Reilly. This E.P. was found at Brick Lane a few years back I think. Again it was the amusing sleeve that made me buy it. The curious renditions of classical works fused with cockney knees-up pub piano and honking saxaphone would make most lovers of Brahms and Lizst reach for the ear-plugs! A good reason to end the year with them then. Happy New Year to all and I look forward to continuing in the same vein in 2006. Cheers!

Michael, you might find this blog interesting - there are links to a number of old Peel sessions - including Viv Stanshall's.

Happy New year folks! Sorry Ive been a bit caught up in the festivities so not been blogging much. I will soon make ammends when Archie is back at school next week and I have more time.
Thanks for the link? spice. Invisible but much welcomed. Peel was always a hero of mine. I think I know this site anyway. Quite a few in homage to him and his programmes I'm glad to say.

And as a compensation for my tardiness here's another nice site
