Happy Hours

[trad. arr. Brinsford / Carthy / Evans / Kirkpatrick / Williams]

Brass Monkey played the tune Happy Hours in 2004 on their fifth album Flame of Fire. John Kirkpatrick commented in the album’s sleeve notes:

Martin Brinsford learned Happy Hours from the playing of fellow mouth organ supremo Jimmy Hiddlestone on one of the two 1977 Topic LPs which featured reissues of the 1930s recordings of Bob Smith’s Ideal Band from Glasgow (Ideal Music, Topic 12T319).
