London gigs in the early 90s

The early 90s was a vintage period for music gigs in London, as these tickets show. I only retained a few from the shows that I attended but there was at least one great show every week. Now they are few and far between. There's a Betty Wright gig coming up soon and the annual Tales From The Woods 2 Is show, but even the London-based David Gest shows, featuring people like Percy Sledge, Candi Staton, Martha Reeves, Dorothy Moore and many others, which were due to take place in Islington next month, appear to have been cancelled.

By eck this brings back some memories!. Despite living up here went to many of these often doubling them up with selling records at record fairs in London if at a weekend and driving back at some unearthy hour. At one of the 2 Wembley R&R ones (1991) I did the Black Music one on Sat and Croydon on the Sunday with the show in between. I was a real groupie with the Hi shows though and saw all the UK performances on the 2 tours -only missed following them over to Holland by work.

I didn't know that particular Normie Rowe record was released in the UK. I remember that he tried to make it England with his previous single "Ooh La La".
His biggest Australian hit was "Que Sera Sera", based on the High Keys arrangement.
