Mary Baker and her Olde Tyme Orchestra – Hastings Pier 11th October 1969

Chris Baker… No relation! Suspect were brilliant though!

Alan Esdaile… I was going to ask you this Chris, as I thought your mum played in a band but may have got it wrong.

Chris Baker… When I was young, 7 to 10 ish, my Mum, Brenda Baker, would sing with Prince McBride at dances etc. I believe she gigged at Falaise Hall and what was the Cafe under Bottle Alley. I do know one of the songs she did was “Me and My Dog”, (Lost in a fog), as she used to swan around the flat in Cobourg shining it into a small saucepan so she could hear her voice reflected back at her. 😁 Happy Memories!

Mark Dean Ellen, Bernie Hagley, Nigel Gilchrist and John Wheels. Trevor Horn(Buggles/Yes) joined Canterbury Tales later when Bernie left. 

John Warner… I see my old mate Dave Sutch up there at number 3. We became friendly in the late 60’s when he lived at Pinner. Sad loss when he died.
