Help! What's he saying!?

Postby JustSheena » Thu May 04, 2017 9:39 pm

I was going to ask someone at Dusty Day but forgot! Doh!
It bugs me every time I play it, but at the start of the live BBC recording of La Bamba, what on earth does the compare say? I get the 'Representing the. ????? .... that magnificent songstress Dusty Springfield!
Be patient - I'm constantly translating English to Geordie and vice versa ;) It's probably me! :):) [:D]

Yes indeed it's the dulcet tone of the late Brian Matthews introducing Dusty.
I'd rather see the world the way it used to be.......

As this is the "getting it right " thread can we get the name right
It's Brian Matthew. No S on the end.
It always bugged the poor man that people got his name wrong all the time. [beg]

As Frans said earlier, it's 'distaff side' not 'distaff sound'. It means the female side, line or branch. The corresponding male term is 'the spear side'.. All Brian Matthew was doing was distinguishing Dusty from the male groups that were dominating the pop music scene at the time.
