Red Hot & Blonde
1. Concrete and Clay
The sixties hit by Unit Four Plus Two, re-interpreted in Red Hot & Blonde style - probably the first time this song has featured the ukulele-banjo and accordion!
Originally recorded by Esther and Abi Ofarim and seldom heard since, this makes an ideal duet for Lynda and Andy.
3. Mean To Me
A 1920s standard which lends itself beautifully to the soft rhythm of the ukulele. Also featuring Janet's delightful alto sax solo.
4. Yeh Yeh
Georgie Fame's well-known hit as you've never heard it before!
5. I'm Just Wild About Harry
An Al Jolson classic, but it never suited him so well as it does Lynda! Also featuring a typically rip-roaring uke solo from Andy.
6. Look For The Silver Lining
A popular 1920s song made famous by Jessie Matthews, but rarely heard in its original form as a duet with two verses. Here it is in its entirity.
7. With My Little Stick Of Blackpool Rock
No Red Hot & Blonde performance is complete without a George Formby song from Andy Eastwood. Here is a Formby favourite played on George's original uke!
8. La Mer
The famous Charles Trenet number which has been presented in so many ways over the years; here it shows why Janet Beale is described as one of the country's finest accordion virtuosi.
9. My Baby Just Cares For Me
A hit song long before Nina Simone recorded her famous version - here's the Red Hot & Blonde interpretation.
10. The Very Thought Of You
Another change of mood and instrumentation, featuring Lynda's heartfelt vocals along with Andy on the violin and a fine piano solo from Janet.
11. Running Wild
An inspired new version of Marilyn Monroe's song from Some Like It Hot, with Andy doubling on violin and ukulele, and the rarely-performed verse provided by Lynda.
12. Goodnight Sweetheart
Andy signs off with the Al Bowly song more famous now as a TV theme, featuring once again the sublime alto sax sound of Janet Beale.
