‘Doing My Black Thing’ from Juwon’s CD : Life Force Music.

Must thank Juwon for letting me accompany him on my last official concert ( May 23rd 2012) at St Dunstan-in-the West in London as their concert organiser for some four years and some 200 concerts. Above is a track from his great CD released this year (2012): ‘Life Force Music’.

Various examples found of his recordings and to purchase his CD direct from Juwon at:-www.juwonogungbe.co.uk  Any problems then contact us. Thanks Juwon.

Above is a photo recording our rendition of ‘Memphis in June’. But right now Juwon is not in Memphis but Virginia (22.8.12) USA.  See you when you return. Keep on doing your ‘black thing’. It’ll do!  Godfrey K.

And thanks to Father William at St Dunstan for all those years who has now also departed for the ‘Zoo Church’, Regents Park. Here he is presenting nay insisting on kindly parting gifts and getting his church back. As always more appreciated than spoken words can say. We had something good going there for a time and now to other worlds anew.

Gofrey King's last hoorah!

An amazing sound for the New Year especially for AJSW viewers.

Some say this is Elvis on a secret visit to Japan. Will this be the hit single of 2011?
