May 2017 Update

Summer of Love
Tim was back in the studio in April with Bill Buckingham, at Palace Studios in East Vancouver, to record an Alan Millen song to celebrate the 50th anniversary of 1967’s summer of love, called … you guessed it … Summer of Love! This affectionate but tongue-in-cheek pastiche of the sounds and sentiments of that particularly hot season can now be downloaded here –

Summer of Love on YouTube
… and here’s a message from lyricist and man about Zurich town Alan Millen:
With the 50th anniversary of the release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band only a couple of weeks away, it’s time to recall what became known as The Summer Of Love. Your humble scribe has reinvented himself as the psychedelic relic precisely for this purpose. Teaming up with Tim Readman and Bill Buckingham always leads to some exciting adventures and this time around is no exception. The track was recorded in Vancouver in April.
We’re dedicating this particular effort to all you flower children out there. You know who you are!
Please make an old hippy happy and share the video link generously with kindred spirits of all ages.

Feelin’ groovy!

Comedy Cares
We had great time at Comedy Cares in Port Coquitlam with Alison Ogilvie and crew. We raised a few hundred for Stroke Recovery Association of BC, Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity and Boden Lalonde.
Tim played a couple of his own humorous ditties and Mike McCormick’s ‘I am Cow’ from his days performing with The Arrogant Worms, and one from Vin Garbutt’s repertoire called The Hartlepool Monkey by Alan Wilkinson. You can read about the legend of this famous monkey here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_hanger and hear the song here:

Just in case you’ve never heard the Worms then try going here to hear the fine hymn to the bovine creatures who keep some of us well fed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LaAojNwzFXY
