I still had a day job at a laboratory when the melody for In the Summertime entered my head. The lyric took 10 minutes to write. When I was young, my family always went to Hayling Island, in Hampshire, for holidays; great affairs with about 20 of us.
Ray Dorset, singer, songwriter
Led by the heroically sideburned Ray Dorset , Mungo Jerry rose to overnight fame with their debut single, 's "In the Summertime," a loose-limbed celebration of the carefree summer months set to a rollicking acoustic accompaniment that invoked the sounds of skiffle and jug band music in its playful approach to the blues. The playful acoustic sound of that effort would give way to a more full-bodied approach on 's You Don't Have to Be in the Army and 's Boot Power , and tougher electric arrangements would dominate 's Impala Saga and 's Lovin' in the Alleys, Fightin' in the Streets. But the playful, good-time spirit of Mungo Jerry would almost always shine through, even on latter-day experiments like 's Candy Dreams , which featured several electronic reggae tracks, and the rockabilly leanings of 's Naked - From the Heart. Cole , King , and Rush came aboard, and the Mungo lineup was complete. The name Mungo Jerry -- from a T. Eliot poem -- came next, along with a contract from Pye Records. The quartet had a pleasing, low-key jug band sound, folk-like but also bluesy, which was unusual at a time when most British bands into the blues were shooting for high-wattage virtuosity.
Mungo Jerry are a British rock group who experienced their greatest success in the early s, with a changing line-up that has always been fronted by Ray Dorset. The group's name was inspired by the poem " Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer ", from T. Melody Maker awarded Mungo Jerry the "best new band" title in
Does He Like Me - Signs. I didn't even believe. If you end up marrying a true believing Mormon, your marriage will be a threesome. I will keep reading, but it looks like most of the stuff about racism and polygamy has been "adequately" explained away by updates to LDS.
