At rehearsal with a lovely Irish lass.

Imelda is awesome. She just rocks.

Have a wonderful, safe time Deed. And, if you get the chance, please tell Imelda that Johnnie and I said hello.

28

Can't you almost hear the great music they're making coming through that picture to the jukebox in your mind?

Duane in the vanguard of a ' Save The Children ' fund raiser ! - Early this morning I phoned the Daily Mirror news desk suggesting that the paper covers the event . Particularly extolling Duane's great participation ! - Though not everyone could be there physically , in spirit we have been , hoping for unparalleled success !

Having fun for a great cause---can't ask for much more.

33

Oh, MAN!! That white 6120! I hope some video surfaces. :)

Two of my nephews play in a band called The Peace Pirates and a couple of days ago they did a session for 'Whispering' Bob Harris. They walked through the door and there was Duane. They were absolutely thrilled to bits.

36

Liverpool boys. We were all having a lovely cup of tea in the kitchen...and yes, it really is a small world, Dave!

We heard the first track from the session...this is a really good band.

37

Tennessee Waltz. As I mentioned to a friend, no one can sing I lost my little darlin' like a Dublin girl.

38

What a fabulous photo , fabulous songs , fabulous music people ! - But is there any news on the fundraising , can you give us an update on that Deed ? - ' Save The Children Fund ' being the great catalyst !

Now THERE is a recording crying to be made!

40

Ohhhh.... Deed, how wonderful! I would sooo love to hear that! Imelda looks fab and I'm sure she sounds even better. And to have Duane's guitar with that voice - I have trouble thinking of a better combination. Please can they tour Australia??

41

Oh, now.... I do say, this is awesomeness!

42

What numbers did Duane play ? I am aware that 'Peter Gunn' was one of them but would like to know the others please.

43

Very, very cool, Deed! And for a great cause..! Have a wonderful trip !

45

Very cool and thanks for sharing these, Miss Deed.

So far, I have heard a figure of close to two million pounds. That includes the online auction, which I am proud to say featured a Duane Eddy 6120. The final amount for that was nearly $7,000.

Set list: Movin' and Groovin', Forty Miles of Bad Road, Shazam, Three Thirty Blues, First Love First Tears, Because They're Young, Peter Gunn, Rebel Rouser. With Imelda May: Tennessee Waltz, I Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Rollin' and Tumblin'

Robert Plant, Cool! Will the recording be available in the states?

48

There was no recording on this night that I know of...that doesn't mean there isn't one! : )

49

Many thanks for the set list Deed. An amazing amount raised for a worthwhile cause only wish you both could have stayed longer in the UK ! It was good of Bob Harris to make his photographs available -a nice guy.

The set list included "Ring of Fire". Veeery interesting. Since it was listed "with Imelda May" and following "I Walk the Line" I am curious as to which version it might have been.
