The great Elio Pace and his brilliant band with a supreme version of a very early Drifters track from the 50's, 'Fools Fall In Love' live on 'Weekend Wogan' BBC Radio 2 on Sunday, December 5th 2010.
Gorgeous backing vocal and brass arrangement by Elio and masterfully performed by everyone. Terry sums it up for me "the best house band in the world" - couldn't agree more. The incredible variety and quality that Elio and his band display week after week LIVE on 'Weekend Wogan' and where he finds these pearls of songs that he does, is beyond me. Great songs that no-one hears, let alone performs anymore. Staggering effort all year and one that I'm sure hasn't gone unnoticed by millions of music lovers all over the world.
Elio Pace has brought a uniqueness to the airwaves and has reminded us that not all the best music is necessarily the most popular.
A shame though that the BBC stopped filming 'Weekend Wogan' after the October 3rd opening show at the London Palladium. Hence why this is only the second video clip from this 3rd series. I will at some point upload the audio from many more of Elio's magnificent performances this year.
