Some of you noticed the quality of the sound in my recordings has declined, lately. I took the microphone apart and found that one of the pins in the XLR connector had come loose. Fortunately, after rebuilding it, the sound has gone back to normal, as you can hear in this recording. This solo was written by Joe Morley when he was the president of the London Banjo Club, where he often played during the inter-war years hoping to stimulate sales of his compositions. This implied a considerable effort on his part as he lacked money for the return bus fare and he had to walk a long way home. The Club closed during WWII and re-opened in the 1950s. It has since closed for good, like most other banjo clubs, due to dwindling membership figures. I have recorded this solo on a Weaver banjo similar to the one Joe Morley used to play (pictured, centre).
