we load up our car (including topbox) with our vacation stuff,
tent, sleepingbags etc.
7 july 2002 we’re going on vacation to France but first to Losheim Am see to see the Mungo Jerry Gig.
the car sunday morning at 8:30 , fill up with gas and driving
via Belgium / Luxemburg to Germany, Losheim was easy to find
(better as the tent poles we’re forgot) and arrive around two
pm. Setup the tent (lonneke’s only, because the pole’s) and
after that we’re going to the Oldie Festival next to the
Platters on stage when we get into the area with open stage,
after the Platters , the Middle Of The Road. Sally is still good looking and the Middle Of The Road style is set.
Sally’s voice is a little lazy but he Scottish accent is still
there. Next to the stage I see Ray Dorset in a colored shirt
with his technical man Jarvis.
performed a halfplayback show for about 30 minuts. The public
started to sing and clapping hands the whole show through. Mungo
Jerry is still alive after 32 years !! What a wonderful
"Lady Rose 2002" is a great new version of the song we
all know, Ray mixed up the verses and chorus to a total new
"Lady Rose" really great. After the show we talked with
Ray and Jarvis for more as two hours, have some beers and a nice
chat. Ray signed some CD sleeves and the 7” sleeve “It’s A
Goodie Boogie Woogie” Japan, I brought with me. Said goodbye
around 9:45 and back to the camping because the gage of the
camping closed at 10pm. but we’re back without the car to the
festival to see the rest of the bands, The festival closed with
a great performance of the Sweet, great to hear all those tunes
we all now, Block Buster , Fox On The Run , Papa Joe , Funny
Funny etc. End of the festival at half past midnight. So this
was the first Mungo Jerry gig we visit this summer but there are
more gigs to see, our vacation can begin now but first we have
to find some new pole's........
