Womack & Womack Live In Failsworth

Posted (edited)

WELL............WOW.IS ALL I CAN SAY NOTHING LOW-KEY ABOUT IT REALLY ....BUT BIZARRE......CERTAINLY!!!...I GOT WIND OF IT THROUGH A FRIEND (FAYE JONES) I THOUGHT IT WAS A WIND-UP...BUT NO!... WE TURNED UP AT 'THE DUTCH BIRDS' PUBLIC HOUSE IN FAILSWORTH, NORTH MANCHESTER..HAD A FEW DRINKS AS THE PLACE BEGAN TO FILL-UP WITH LOTS OF LOCAL MANCHESTER FACES, THOUGHT I WAS IN THE TWISTED WHEEL AT ONE POINT. LOTS OF PHOTOGRAPHERS HOVERING... STAGE SET UP IN THE CORNER WITH MIC STANDS AND SPEAKERS..YEP ! DEFINITELY SOMETHING GOING ON. THEN IN THEY WALKED CECIL(BOBBYS BROTHER)..THE BEAUTIFULL LINDA (WOW , SAM COOKES DAUGHTER IN FAILSWORTH..CRAZY !) AND THEIR BEAUTIFULL DAUGHTERS WHO LATER HELPED OUT ON BACKING VOCALS( AND SANG IN THEIR OWN RIGHT WITH CECIL & LINDA BACKING.) THEY SAT AND CHATTED WITH PEOPLE AND THERE FOLLOWED A BOOK SIGNING OF 'FAMILY' A HISTORY OF THE WOMACKS...LOTS OF CDs FOR SALE TOO.

I STILL COULDN'T BELIEVE THIS WAS HAPPENING...AFTER ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF OF SIGNING AND CHATTING AND LOADS OF PICTURE OPPORTUNITIES THEY WERE READY TO HIT THE STAGE, BUT FIRST THEY WENT TO GET SOME AIR AND GET READY...IN THAT TIME WE WERE TREATED TO TWO CHAPS WHO HAD A LINE IN VERY OLD JOKES AND SANG DUETS OF TUNES FROM HIGH-SOCIETY AND THE SINATRA SONGBOOK...TRULY BIZZZARE ....THEN A DELAY IN WHICH TIME THE ONE COMEDIANS' EFFORTS TO KEEP CHIPPER WERE CLEARLY GETTING TESTED AND HE WAS FAST RUNNING OUT OF GAGS..IN BETWEEN HE KEPT ASKING IF THEY WERE READY YET...BY THE TIME THEY CAME BACK ..INSTEAD OF INTRODUCING THEM IN STYLE HE WAS SO RELIEVED THAT HE EXCLAIMED' THANK GOD FOR THAT !' ......IT WAS A TRUE SOUTHPARK MOMENT.

THE SHOW WAS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT , LINDAS' VOICE IMMACULATE...CECIL GREAT TOO...AND THE GIRLS..STARS IN THE MAKING....!!!

ALL THE FAVOURITES IN THERE..'LOVE WARS,CATCH'N'DON'T LOOK BACK, EXPRESS MYSELF,CELEBRATE THE WORLD, EGYPTIAN QUEEN,STANDING STILL...A FEW THE GIRLS SANG ON (WHICH I APOLOGISE FOR BUT COULDN'T SAY I KNEW THEM, BUT DID ENJOY THEM ALONG WITH THE VERY UP FOR IT CROWD) A VERSION OF 'OTIS REDDINGS'..'DOCK OF THE BAY' WHICH SEEMED TO DRIFT IN AND OUT OF THE LYRICS. THE FAMILY AS A WHOLE WOVE A FINE TAPESTRY WITH THEIR SILKEN VOICES, QUITE MESMERIC AT TIMES AND ALL THIS TO BACKING TRACKS...THE ODD BIT OF FEEDBACK BUT OTHERWISE SPOT ON................THEN CAME' FOOTSTEPS ON THE DANCEFLOOR' AND THE PLACE ERUPTED........EVERYONE SINGING EVERY WORD ..WHAT A MAGICAL EVENING !...UNBELIEVABLE AND IN A PUB IN NORTH MANCHESTER..I'M .STILL PINCHING MYSELF !!!! TWO OR THREE ACTS ON AFTER WHICH WERE A GOOD COMPLIMENT TO THE EVENING INCLUDING MARVIN RUFFIN (CLOWNING BEHIND BEN BRIERLY} AN ABSOLUTELY CRACKING NIGHT AND SO UTTERLY UNEXPECTED...I WAS SURE IT WAS A JOKE BEFOREHAND BUT NO......THEY CAME ,THEY SAW 'THEY CONQUERED AND WHAT GREAT PEOPLE TOO. TO CAP IT ALL MR RICHARD PITTS OF FANTASTICS AND VELOURS FAME WAS THERE TOO AND I MANAGED TO HAVE A CHAT WITH HIM OUTSIDE THE VENUE...SORRY TO SAY BUT YOU MISSED A CORKER FOLKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOMACK & WOMACK WILL BE DOING A FULL TOUR IN SEPTEMBER AT MAJOR THEATRES INCLUDING LIVERPOOL PHILHARMONIC AND 'SHEPPARDS BUSH EMPIRE...A LOT BIGGER VENUES THAN 'THE DUTCH BIRDS' IN FAILSWORTH SO NOT AS INTIMATE...BUT MISS THEM AT YOUR PERIL !...... I MEAN IT'S THE WOMACK FAMILY ...HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN 'SHEER-CLASSS' !!!!

ALL THE BEST
