Birthday music: Hound Dog

How to fill an all but fixed camera. Most early Elvis would do. Of course I am no more than about eight at the time and Elvis is forbidden. What I like about early rock 'n roll is the simplicity. No great tricks, just the odd reverb, the rest the sound of a half empty dance hall in Hastings or Bognor or Hackney. That and the juke box along the prom in the rain.

Miles says, "That stuff is excellent!" Plus, he says, "Happy Birthday, George." (His ninth birthday is in ten days.)

Thank you, Miles. Have a great day yourself.
