Peter Skellern Cravings!

Aaah, you know how it is: nothing beats the music of one's youth. Being piano mad I favoured those artistes writing, performing, arranging with the piano as the star. One of these was a quirky guy called Peter Skellern. Totally unique, a fantastic arranger and perhaps the last truly romantic songwriter.

He arranged and recorded his own versions of classic songs by the Gershwins, Berlin, Hoagy, etc but giving them an English twist with a brass band and olde-fashioned English choir, interspersed with his own material. He had a unique music vision.

I own his recordings on vinyl and cassette with the inevitable consequnce they don't get played anymore. I just bought a compilation of some of his material on a CD called 'Sentimentally Yours'. Oh boy - am I enjoying it. Wondering what the chap was up to these days I had a look round the net but his presence here is minimal. It seems he's pretty much retired now but he should still be remembered, appreciated and enjoyed.

If anyone knows how to contact him I'd love to set up a website for him!! In the meantime:

The album 'A String Of Pearls:  Image and video hosting by TinyPic

He did a lot of tours and albums with Peter Stilgoe:  Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

Come back, Mr Skellern!

Oh wait, it looks like he is/was with the Noel Gay Agency. His bio says he is retired and living in Cornwall. I guess you could always go and visit him ;)

As per my usual want, I've saved up a stack of Barrington Stoke reviews to blast you with. The selection I recently received is superb. Some great titles from a lot of well known authors and as usual, the stories are well written and they make you want to sit down and re-read them again and discuss them with someone.
