Robert Knight at Drummonds

I have just got home after seeing Robert Knight (no relation) at Drummonds.

Apart from one tune, his solo set consisted entirely of Robert's own compositions.

In the first number he cleverly worked in a reference to "meeting you at Cafe Drummonds."

His second number was the well known, "Poppy 18 from Somerset" - inspired by a Page 3 girl who Robert liked. His introduction told how Poppy herself liked the lyrics and has been friendly with Robert ever since.

The best quip of the evening was Roberts saying "Playing an intro is like foreplay - not always necessary - then he went into the surprise number of the night - one that written more than 50 years ago when it was considered to be quite risqu : Sixty Minute Man.

"Sixty Minute Man" had the ladies in the audience whooping and hollering - it was a good evening's entertainment.
