Felix Essien A game gone and still the Objective very much the same.... Top 4 Finish. We were 4th now 6th but it's ok only 2 points behind and still 30 games to be played... So nothing happened. Couple of Points after tonight's game. - A team without a real Holdi Read more ... ng Midfielder & Leaders at the back. - Marcos Rojo is a player full of mistakes, as proved in the Super Classico vs Brazil and tonight's 2nd goal of West Brom, I'm not sure what he was thinking leaving his player without making sure he's offside, that was Foolish. (And I wonder where was Phil Jones) - Louis Van Gaal still being Foolish by keeping Van Persie and benching Falcao, this time his excuse is that Falcao traveled long hours from Colombia to Manchester. He talks about Rooney and his place in the Starting Eleven not guaranteed, I wonder if he would tell the same to his beloved Dutchman!!!! - There's only One great Winger in this team and that's Angel Di Maria, when the guy plays on the left there is weakness on the right side, while in the real world he should be playing on the right so that he goes inside with his left foot, passes, crosses, assists, shoots, but if he plays on the right wing who will play left!!!!!! - When you see Young and Failaini introduced in the 2nd half, you know this team is still far from being the real Manchester United, as for Moyes's other panic buy Juan Mata, his role on the pitch is simply unknown. I just hope we stay close to the top 4 till January, and maybe get proper leader at the back even if that's mission impossible in that window, but at least an experienced head who can help us till the end of the season.. May God be with us vs Chel$hit, $hitty, Arsenal in the coming weeks... # Believe

PRESS RELEASE SPECIAL TRAINS TO OPERATE TO CORWEN on 22 OCTOBER 2014 The Llangollen Railway is pleased to announce the arrangements for a first day of steam hauled trains to the new temporary platform at Dwyrain Corwen East on Wednesday, 22 October Read more ... 2014. This will be the first time in nearly fifty years that passenger trains have arrived at Corwen since services were suspended in December 1964, prior to formal closure of the line by British Railways in January 1965. The special trains to celebrate the completion of phase 1 of the extension project are due to arrive at Corwen at: 11.35, 13.45 and 15.54. The five coach trains for this special service will be topped and tailed by locomotives GWR No.3802 and Black Five No.45337. They will stop in the platform for 10 minutes whilst arrangements are made to reverse back out. The first two trains, due to leave Llangollen at 11.00 and 13.00, are reserved for invited passengers only. The third departure at 1500 will convey members of the public who wish to purchase tickets at the premium rate of £25, on sale from Llangollen station after 1330. A commemorative card ticket in the traditional style will be issued. On this first occasion no tickets will be issued for travel from Corwen. The operation of the Special Trains with two locomotives is required as no run round loop is available at the temporary station. This will require a stop over at Carrog on the return journey whilst one locomotive is detached. It will be attached to the next working to Corwen. In view of the large numbers of passengers arriving by the first two trains, on this occasion access to the platform by spectators will be restricted for safety reasons. Inspection of the new structure may be permitted once trains have departed, at the discretion of the Railway’s station staff. George Jones, for Llangollen Railway Trust, said, “The arrival of the first Special Trains to Corwen celebrates the achievement of the rebuilding of the line west from Carrog. The project has been a considerable challenge in terms of applying the available limited resources and the problems which have been encountered. The work undertaken by the volunteer work force, aided by our full time staff and contractors, demonstrates that determination and enthusiasm overcame all the obstacles. The Llangollen Railway Trust wishes to acknowledge the help and assistance it has received from its many supporters and well wishers whose contributions have ensured the success of project. The formal opening ceremony for the line extension will be held at Dwyrain Corwen East station on 1 March 2015.”

Adelaide Louise Hall (20 October 1901 – 7 November 1993) was an American-born UK-based jazz singer and entertainer. Her career spanned more than seventy years from 1921 until her death and she was a major figure in the Harlem Renaissance. Adelaide Read more ... was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Elizabeth and Arthur William Hall and was taught to sing by her father. She began her stage career in 1921 on Broadway in the chorus line of the Broadway musical Shuffle Along and went on to appear in a number of similar black musical shows including Runnin' Wild on Broadway in 1923, Chocolate Kiddies in 1925 (European tour) that included songs written by Duke Ellington, My Magnolia on Broadway in 1926, Tan Town Topics with songs written by Fats Waller and in Desires of 1927 (American tour in 1927). In 1924, Hall married a British sailor born in Trinidad, Bertram Errol Hicks. Soon after their marriage he opened a short-lived club in Harlem, New York, called The Big Apple and became her official business manager. Chocolate Kiddies European tour, 1925 Hall was hired to join the cast of the Chocolate Kiddies revue in New York, where they rehearsed before setting sail for Europe. The initial tour started at Hamburg, Germany on May 17, 1925 and ended in Paris, France in December 1925 visiting many major cities in-between. The revue was designed to give Europeans a sampling of black entertainment from New York. Included in the cast were The Three Eddies, Lottie Gee, Rufus Greenlee and Thaddeus Drayton, Bobbie and Babe Goins, Charles Davis and Sam Wooding and his Orchestra. After the initial tour disbanded, Sam Wooding and his Orchestra continued touring the Chocolate Kiddies revue for several years later. Tan Town Topics, Small's Paradise and Desires of 1927 Upon her return to New York, after touring Europe with the Chocolate Kiddies, Hall was featured in Tan Town Topics, a revue containing songs written by Fats Waller and Spencer Williams. The cast included Fats Waller, Eddie Rector and Ralph Cooper, Adelaide Hall, Maude Mills, Arthur Gaines, Leondus Simmons and a dance troupe called the Tan Town Topics Vamps. The show opened at Harlem’s Lafayette Theatre on 5 April followed by a short road tour on the eastern T.O.B.A. circuit taking in Baltimore, Chicago and Philadelphia. During July 1926, Hall appeared in residency with Lottie Gee and The Southern Syncopated Orchestra at Small’s Paradise, New York.[25] On Tuesday 5 October, Hall appeared again at Small’s Paradise at a special party Handy Night hosted by the venue to honour W. C. Handy and to celebrate the release of his newly published book Blues: An Anthology—Complete Words and Music of 53 Great Songs. For entertainment, Adelaide Hall, Lottie Gee, Maude White and Chic Collins provided a selection of jazz and blues numbers. From October 1926, Hall toured America playing the T.O.B.A. circuit until September 1927 in the highly praised show Desires of 1927, conceived by J. Homer Tutt. Quote from the Pittsburgh Courier newspaper: ‘Adelaide Hall and assistants have some show. Speed, pretty girls, catchy music, a touch of art, which touches the border line of nudity - the names of such well-known stage celebrities as Adelaide Hall, J. Homer Tutt, Henry "Gang" Jones, the Harmony, Trio, Charles Hawkins, Arthur Porter, "Billy" McKelvey and Clarence Nance.’ Adelaide Hall and Duke Ellington In October 1927, Hall recorded her wordless vocals on Creole Love Call, The Blues I Love To Sing and Chicago Stomp Down with Duke Ellington and his Orchestra. The recordings were worldwide hits and catapulted both Hall's and Ellington's careers into the mainstream. On 4 December 1927, Duke Ellington and his Orchestra commenced their residency at Harlem's Cotton Club in a revue called Rhythmania. The show featured Hall singing Creole Love Call. In 1928, Creole Love Call entered the Billboard song charts at No. 19 (USA) On 7 January 1933, Hall and Duke Ellington and his Famous Orchestra recorded I Must Have That Man and Baby. Blackbirds of 1928 In 1928, Hall starred on Broadway with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in Blackbirds of 1928. The show became the most successful all-black show ever staged on Broadway at that time and made Hall and Bojangles into household names. Blackbirds of 1928 was the idea of impresario Lew Leslie, who planned to build the show around Florence Mills in New York after her success in the hit London show Blackbirds but she died of pneumonia in 1927 before rehearsals commenced. Hall was chosen to replace her. The revue originally opened at Les Ambassadeurs Club in New York in January 1928, under the name Blackbird Revue, but in May 1928 it transferred to Broadway's Liberty Theatre and was renamed Blackbirds of 1928, where it ran for 518 performances. After a slow start, the show became the hit of the season. Hall's performance of Diga Diga Do, created a sensation. Her mother was so incensed when she went to see the show by her daughter performing what she termed 'risqué dance moves', she tried to stop the show during Adelaide's performance and banned her from appearing in any future performances. The ban only remained for one performance and Adelaide returned triumphantly to her role the following day. It was reported in the press that the shows producer Lew Leslie was so concerned about race violence concerning the controversy surrounding Adelaide's performance that he took out a hefty insurance policy to cover the cast; the most heavily insured were the principals, Adelaide Hall and Bill Robinson. It was this musical that secured Hall's success both in the USA and in Europe when the production was taken to Paris, France, in 1929, where it ran for three months at the Moulin Rouge. The French artist Paul Colin illustrated several posters to advertise Blackbirds run at the Moulin Rouge including one titled Le Tumulte Noir – Dancer in Magenta that captures Adelaide's performance beautifully, as she's dancing and waving her arms about. In Europe Adelaide rivalled Josephine Baker for popularity on the European stage. With a music score written by Jimmy McHugh and lyrics written by Dorothy Fields, Adelaide's performances of the songs I Can't Give You Anything but Love, Baby, Diga Diga Do, and I Must Have That Man, made them into household hits and they continued to be audience favourites throughout her long career. 1930 Brown Buddies In 1930, Adelaide Hall and Bojangles starred together at New York's Palace Theatre on Broadway for one week. So successful was Hall's collaboration with Bojangles, in 1930 they were teamed up together again, this time by Marty Forkins (Bojangles manager) to star in another Broadway musical entitled Brown Buddies that opened on Broadway at the Liberty Theatre, where it ran for four months before commencing a road tour of the States. Dubbed by the press "a musical comedy in sepia", the core of the music was composed by Millard Thomas, but also featured songs composed by Shelton Brooks, Ned Reed, Porter Grainger, J. C. Johnson, J. Rosamund Johnson, George A. Little, Arthur Sizemore and Edward G. Nelson. After an out of town try-out, the musical opened on 7 October at the Liberty Theatre (New York City) and ran a fairly solid run of 111 performances until 10 January 1931. 1931/32 World concert tour In 1931, Hall embarked on a world concert tour that visited two continents (America and Europe). The tour was estimated to have performed to over one million people. During the tour she appeared four times at New York's Palace Theatre. She was accompanied on stage by two pianists who played white grand pianos. It was during this tour that Hall discovered and employed the blind pianist Art Tatum, whom she brought back to New York with her at the end of the tour. In August 1932, Hall recorded "Strange as it Seems", "I'll Never Be The Same", "This Time it's Love" and "You Gave Me Everything but Love" using Art Tatum as one of her pianists on the recordings. 1932/33 Larchmont, Westchester County, racist incident In the fall of 1932, upon Adelaide's return to New York, Adelaide and her husband purchased the lease on an exclusive freehold residential estate in Larchmont in the New York suburb of Westchester County. As news of Adelaide's arrival in Larchmont leaked into the local media she began to encounter racist opposition from her white upper middle-class prejudiced neighbours who threatened Court action to have her evicted. After her home was broken into and an attempt was made to set it alight, news of the attack hit national newspaper headlines. After receiving hundreds of letters of support from the American public imploring her to stick it out, Adelaide stood her ground and in a press statement she issued insisted she was a true American citizen as her ancestry could be traced back to the Shinnecock Indian tribe of Long Island and as such she had every right to reside where she wished. 1933 American concert tour ADELAIDE HALL TO TOUR THE COAST (Pittsburgh Courier headline) 22 July 1933 Her itinerary included all the principal cities and lasted thirty weeks 1933 World Fair City, Chicago Miss Adelaide Hall Captures The World Fair City and They Like It ... quote taken from the Pittsburgh Courier 19 August 1933 "Miss Adelaide Hall, the darling girl with the guitar and the mellifluent voice, again stole into the callous hearts of an analytical public at the Regal theater last week. She charmed them with her voice, her poise and beauty. She has a style of singing 'Stormy Weather' all her own. Chicago belonged to Adelaide for one whole week. And her majesty feigned supreme." Extract taken from the Pittsburgh Courier 19 August 1933, written by Jules Bledsoe. On 19 August 1933, the fifth annual Bud Billiken Parade and Picnic took place during the prestigious Chicago World Fair. Held by the Chicago Defender local newspaper, African-Americans came out in droves to support the event. The Chicago Defender had named the event after a weekly column in its children's section written by Willard Motley. Billiken became a symbol of pride, happiness and hope for African American youth. After the famous parade (the largest to date) a huge free picnic event was held in Washington Park that included games, music, entertainment, dancing and ice cream. Performing in concert at the event in front of an estimated 50,000 people was the parade's guest of honour Adelaide Hall. Also appearing at the event were Cab Calloway, Earl Hines and The Sioux Tribe of Native Americans. 1933 Stormy Weather Revue Stormy Weather Revue starring Adelaide Hall New York, 29 November 1933. "Although crippled from a fall into a manhole while appearing in Boston the week previous to her New York engagement, Adelaide Hall, scintillating star of the Stormy Weather Revue, limps across the stage ahead of an array of stars, which go far to label this revue, about the finest to grace the boards." In October 1933, for the first time in history the entire floor revue from Harlem's Cotton Club went on tour playing theatres in principal cities across the US. Irving Mills organised the tour and Adelaide Hall headlined the cast. Other performers on the bill Included The Mills Blue Rhythm Band and George Dewey Washington. The revue was originally called The Cotton Club Parade of 1933 but for the road tour it was changed to the Stormy Weather Revue. As the name implies, the show contained the hit song 'Stormy Weather' written by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler that had originally been introduced by Ethel Waters earlier that year at the Cotton Club in the Cotton Club Parade of 1933. 1934 Apollo Theater, Harlem – Chocolate Soldiers revue "Chocolate Soldiers" opens at the new Apollo Theater, Harlem, starring Adelaide Hall Harlem, New York, 14 February 1934: "Chocolate Soldiers," a production featuring Adelaide Hall and the Sam Wooding Orchestra, opened at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. The show was produced by Clarence Robinson and garnered great attention and acclaim and helped establish the recently opened Apollo as Harlem's premier theatre. The Cotton Club Parade, 1934 On 23 March 1934, Hall opened at Harlem's Cotton Club in The Cotton Club Parade 24th Edition in the largest grossing show that was ever staged there. The show ran for nine months. In the show she introduced the songs Ill Wind and Primitive Prima Donna, which Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler wrote especially for her. 1935 American/Canadian concert tour During 1935, Adelaide performed another coast-to-coast American/Canadian concert tour that took in the South. Prior to the tour commencing, Adelaide gave an interview (during her visit to Dixie) conducted by the journalist George Tyler that was published on 16 March 1935 in the Afro-American newspaper. In the interview, Adelaide gives a rare insight into her life, disclosing how dramatically her life has changed since her humble upbringing spent growing up in Harlem. Quote: ‘Much has been said and published too, about the magnificent residence of Miss Hall’, says George, ‘but my interest was in what transpires behind the portals of this mansion when the singer is at home.’ ‘I have a sun parlour,’ said Adelaide, ‘in which I take a keen delight. Here, while enjoying the rays of the sun, I crochet and listen to the radio. A great deal of my time off the stage I spend painting or working in my garden. My favourite radio artists are Mildred Bailey, Willard Robison and his Deep River Orchestra, and the Southernaires. My stage favourites include Bill Robinson, Ethel Waters and Ada Brown. While at home I do very little cooking; in fact, there are servants to take care of these details. The cook's biggest job is to prepare broiled chicken, as that is one of my favourite dishes.’ George adds; the singing star owns and drives her car, roller skates, swims, plays tennis and enjoys horseback riding. ‘When I retire from public life I shall resume my career as a modiste,' confided Miss Hall. 'As a kid I longed for a stage career, and my first step towards this was to run away from school to try my luck behind the footlights. I was apprehended and sent back to school to continue my training as a modiste. Today, I am proud that I am more than an actress.’ George continues by asking Adelaide about her forthcoming American and Canadian concert tour, which takes her deep into the South. "What do you think of such a tour, under the conditions that exist in the South?’ Adelaide replied, 'my experience of a couple of years ago while on a coast-to-coast tour should serve me well. Being a member of the oppressed race, I think I will be able to accustom myself to conditions, as they exist. However, there are many details I would rather not go into.’ European career 1935–38 Hall arrived in Paris, France, in the fall of 1935 and remained living there until 1938. Her husband Bert opened a nightclub for her in Paris called La Grosse Pomme where she frequently entertained. 'It held about 200 people. I made this dramatic entrance coming down a spiral staircase from the attic. Nobody knew that all the boxes of wine and tinned food were stored up there with me. I came down the stairs in the most gorgeous costumes you'll ever see, floating in feathers and plumes,' recalled Adelaide during an interview. 'The Quintette du Hot Club de France, featuring Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, were one of the house bands at the club. At the start of 1936, Hall starred in the Black and White Revue. The show of fifty performers opened in Paris, France. In February 1936, the production travelled to Switzerland for a tour. The revue was produced by Ralph Clayton, staged by Arthur Bradley and choreographed by ballet master Albert Gaubier and the orchestra was directed by Henry Crowder. Adelaide is credited with introducing the dance craze Truckin' to the Parisians. In 1937, she choreographed her own take on the famous French dance the Can-can and called it the Canned Apple and would perform it at her Montmartre nightclub La Grosse Pomme. In Europe, Adelaide sang with several orchestras including those of Willie Lewis and Ray Ventura and in 1937 (whilst on a trip to Copenhagen) she recorded four songs with Kai Ewans and his Orchestra for the Tono record label. British career 1938–39 After many years performing in the USA and Europe, Hall went to the United Kingdom in 1938 to take a starring role in a stage-adapted musical version of Edgar Wallace's The Sun Never Sets at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. She was so successful and became so popular with British audiences she stayed and made her home there becoming one of the most popular singers and entertainers of the time. Hall lived in London from 1938 until her death. On 28 August 1938, Hall recorded I Can't Give You Anything but Love and That Old Feeling at London's Abbey Road Studios with Fats Waller accompanying her on the organ. The recordings were released on HMV Records OEA6391. On 10 September 1938, Hall appeared in Broadcast To America with Fats Waller at London's St George's Hall in a live transatlantic radio broadcast. On 25 February 1939, BBC TV broadcast Harlem in Mayfair from Adelaide's London nightclub, the Old Florida Club. The cabaret show starred Adelaide. Included on the bill were Esther and Louise, Eddie Lewis, and Fela Sowande with his Negro Choir and Orchestra. On 20 May 1939, BBC TV broadcast the cabaret show Dark Sophistication starring Adelaide performing at the Old Florida Club. On 26 August 1939, Adelaide took part in the BBC TV production Kentucky Minstrels that was transmitted live from the 2500-seat RadiOlympia Theatre in London. On Friday 1 September 1939, Adelaide was scheduled to appear on BBC TV at 9:00 pm in a live broadcast titled Variety recorded direct from the RadiOlympia Theatre. Other performers on the bill Included Nosmo King, The Gordon RadiOlympia Girls, Hubert Murray and Mooney, and Bobby Howell and his Band. However, with war looming, the BBC were instructed by the Government to shutdown broadcasting and at 12:35 the service went off the air for seven years. It appears that the show Variety never took place at RadiOlympia as it was noted in The Times newspaper for the following day (2 September) in the section 'News in Brief' that "RadiOlympia closed at 12:30 yesterday", presumably another result of the country being placed on a war footing. Unexpectedly, the show Variety became one of the first British theatrical casualties of WW2 and part of the mystery surrounding 'what really happened at the BBC on 1 September 1939?' Also during 1939, Adelaide became a featured vocalist with Joe Loss & His Band[100] and through 1939 to 1941, Adelaide headlined the popular BBC Radio variety show Piccadixie. She also toured the UK extensively during these years headlining the Piccadixie British Tour supported by comedian Oliver Wakefield and pianist George Elrick. During WWII, Adelaide entertained the troops in Europe for the USO (The United Service Organizations Inc.) and the British equivalent ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association) in which she served as a Captain. Her uniform was made by Madam Adele of Grosvenor Street in Mayfair, London. Hall's career was almost an uninterrupted success. She made over seventy records for Decca, had her own radio series Wrapped in Velvet (making her the first black artist to have a long-term contract with the BBC), and appeared on the stage, in films, and in nightclubs (of which she owned her own in New York, London and Paris). In the 1940s, and especially during World War II, she was hugely popular with both civilian and ENSA audiences and became one of the highest paid entertainers in the country, despite the destruction (by a land mine in an air raid) of the London nightclub (the Old Florida Club) owned by her and her husband. Hall has a cameo appearance as a singer in the 1940 Oscar-winning movie The Thief of Bagdad directed by Alexander Korda in which she sings Lullaby of the Princess written by Miklós Rózsa. In 1943, Adelaide featured in an ENSA radio show broadcast by the BBC titled Spotlight on the Stars during which she was accompanied by the BBC Variety Orchestra. During the show Adelaide mentions how she had just returned home from a tour. On 20 May 1940, Hall's recording of Careless debuted in the British charts at #30 where it remained for 2 consecutive weeks. In the August 1940 issue of Vogue magazine (British edition) a photograph of Adelaide appeared inside on the 'Spotlight' feature page compiled by the features editor Lesley Blanch. The caption under her photograph read, ‘Adelaide Hall and her husband run the Florida. His show, her songs, our fun.’ On 6 June 1944, Hall's recording of There Goes That Song Again entered the BBC British charts at No. 15. Hall appears in the earliest post-war BBC telerecording; a live recording of her performance at RadiOlympia Theatre in October 1947. The footage was filmed on the 'Cafe Continental' stage set at the theatre for a BBC TV show titled Variety in Sepia. In 1948, Hall appeared in a film called A World is Turning, intended to highlight the contribution of black men and women to British society at a time when they were struggling for visibility on our screens. Filming appears to have been halted due to the director's illness and only six reels of rushes remain, including scenes of Hall rehearsing songs such as Swing Low, Sweet Chariot and The Gospel Train (a traditional African-American spiritual first published in 1872 as one of the songs of the Fisk Jubilee Singers). In 1949, Hall appeared on the BBC TV shows Rooftop Rendezvous and Caribbean Carnival. In 1951, Hall appeared as a guest in the music spot on the first ever British comedy series, entitled How Do You View, starring Terry-Thomas and written by Sid Colin and Talbot Rothwell. On 29 October 1951, Hall appeared on the bill of the Royal Variety Performance at London's Victoria Palace Theatre held in the presence of Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret. She was the first black female artiste to ever take part in the Royal Variety Performance. In the early 1950s, Hall and her husband Bert opened the Calypso Club in Regent Street, London, and Royalty flocked there. It was reported in the press Princess Elizabeth was a frequent visitor and that Adelaide had taught Princess Elizabeth the Charleston. Hall appeared in the 1951 London run of Kiss Me, Kate playing the role of Hattie, singing Cole Porter's Another Op'nin', Another Show, and in the 1952 London musical Love From Judy playing the role of Butterfly, singing A Touch of Voodoo, Kind to Animals and Ain't Gonna Marry. In 1956, she returned to London's West End in the play "Someone to Talk To". In 1957, at the request of Lena Horne, Hall returned to America to appear with Lena in the musical Jamaica. The world premiere of Jamaica took place in Philadelphia in September 1957 and transferred to Broadway on 31 October. In 1958, Adelaide was cast as one of the lead characters in Rodgers and Hammerstein's new musical Flower Drum Song, but she left the cast before the musical opened and returned to the UK. On 1 April 1960, Hall appeared on the BBC TV music show The Music Goes Round hosted by John Watt. The show was an NBA TV version of the radio show Songs from the Shows.[133] On 3 March 1965, Hall appeared on BBC2 television in Muses with Milligan with Spike Milligan and John Betjeman in a show devoted to poetry and jazz. In 1968, Hall returned to London's West End in the stage play Janie Jackson. Between 1969–70, Hall made two jazz recordings with Humphrey Lyttelton. This was followed by theatre tours and concert appearances; she sang at Duke Ellington's memorial service at St Martin-in-the-Fields in 1974. On 4 January 1974, she appeared on the British TV shows Looks Familiar (as a panelist) and on What Is Jazz, with Humphrey Lyttelton. On 15 June 1976, she appeared on British TV in It Don't Mean a Thing.[138] and in 1981 appeared on the Michael Parkinson BBC TV show Parkinson as a guest. In July 1982, Hall appeared at a Gala concert held at St. Paul's Cathedral in London to celebrate the sacred music of Duke Ellington. A live recording of the concert titled The Sacred Music of Duke Ellington was filmed for a Channel 4 TV documentary. Artists also taking part included Tony Bennett, Phyllis Hyman, Jacques Loussier, Alan Downey, Wayne Sleep, Ronnie Scott, Stan Tracey and the New Swingle Singers. The concert was hosted by Rod Steiger and narrated by Douglas Fairbanks Jr. In April 1980, Adelaide returned to the USA and from 1 to 24 May she appeared in the cast of Black Broadway (a retrospective musical revue) at the Town Hall in New York. Other artists who appeared in the show included Elisabeth Welch, Gregory Hines, Bobby Short, Honi Coles, Edith Wilson, Nell Carter and John W. Bubbles of Buck and Bubbles fame. The show had originally been staged at the Newport Jazz Festival on 24 June 1979, before it was re-assembled in 1980 and staged at the Town Hall. Following Black Broadway, in June 1980, Adelaide took up temporary residence at Michael’s Pub in New York and commenced a three-week engagement performing three shows a night. Also in June 1980, Adelaide performed at The Playboy Jazz Festival held at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Other artists on the bill included Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Stephane Grappelli, Mel Torme, Zoot Sims, Carmen McRae and Chick Corea. On 2 July 1980, writer Rosetta Reitz organised a tribute to the Women of Jazz at Avery Fisher Hall as part of the Newport Jazz Festival. Called The Blues is a Woman, the program, narrated by Carmen McRae, featured music by Adelaide Hall, Big Mama Thornton, Nell Carter and Koko Taylor. Back in the States, in February 1983, Adelaide appeared on the bill of the 100th birthday celebration for composer Eubie Blake held at the Shubert Theater, New York. Unfortunately, Blake was recovering from pneumonia at the time so could not attend the event but with the aid of a special telephone hook-up to his home in Brooklyn he was able to listen to the entire two-hour show. On 5 April 1983, Adelaide commenced a month-long engagement at the Cookery in New York. Her accompanists were Ronnie Whyte and Frank Tate. In 1985, Hall appeared on British TV in the cast of, Omnibus: The Cotton Club comes to the Ritz, a 60-minute BBC TV documentary in which some of the performers from Harlem's Cotton Club were filmed performing at the Ritz Hotel in London along with contemporary musicians. Also appearing on the bill were Cab Calloway and his Orchestra, Doc Cheatham, Max Roach and the Nicholas Brothers.[149][150] In 1985, Hall also appeared on British TV on the South Bank Show in a documentary titled The Real Cotton Club. In July 1986, Hall performed in concert at the Barbican Centre, London. In October 1988, Hall presented a one-woman show at Carnegie Hall in New York. She presented the same show in London at the Kings Head Theatre (Islington) during December 1988. She is one of the very few performers to have made two guest appearances (2 December 1972)and (13 January 1991) on the BBC Radio 4 program Desert Island Discs. In 1989, Hall appeared at the Royal Festival Hall in London at the Royal Ellington Tribute Concert that included the world premiere of Ellington's Queen's Suite that was written for Queen Elizabeth II. Other artists appearing included the Bob Wilber Band, Tony Coe and Alan Cohen. The concert was filmed by Independent Film Production Associates. In 1990, Hall starred in the movie Sophisticated Lady, a documentary about her life, which included a performance of her in concert recorded live at the Riverside Studios in London. Her final US concert appearances took place in 1992 at Carnegie Hall, in the Cabaret Comes to Carnegie series. Also in 1992, Adelaide was presented with a Gold Badge Award from BASCA (the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors). After attending the award ceremony Adelaide said, “I was so proud to be acknowledged. They said, ‘You look like a Queen. You don’t look more than fifty or sixty. You look so well.’ I wore a sequin suit – different colours – it glittered. I must have been the oldest one there! I ate everything that came along.” During an extremely long career spanning eight decades, Hall entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's most enduring recording artist. Hall performed with major artists such as Art Tatum. Ethel Waters, Josephine Baker, Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Cab Calloway, Fela Sowande Rudy Vallee and Jools Holland, and has recorded as a jazz singer with Duke Ellington (with whom she made her most famous recording, "Creole Love Call" in 1927) and with Fats Waller. Adelaide Hall died on 7 November 1993, aged 92, at London's Charing Cross Hospital., Honouring her wish, her funeral took place in New York at the Cathedral of the Incarnation (Garden City, New York) and she was laid to rest beside her mother at the Cemetery of the Evergreens in Brooklyn. In London, there was a memorial service held for her at St Paul's, Covent Garden (known as the 'actor's church') at which many stars including Elaine Page, Elisabeth Welch, Lon Satton and Elaine Delmar attended. One of the participants, TV presenter and broadcaster Michael Parkinson, remarked rather fittingly during his eulogy, "Adelaide lived to be ninety-two and never grew old." Legacy Adelaide Hall was one of the major entertainers of the Harlem Renaissance. Along with Louis Armstrong, she pioneered scat singing and is widely acknowledged as one of the world's first jazz singers. Indeed, Ella Fitzgerald regarded her as such. Hall was the first female vocalist to sing and record with Duke Ellington. She holds the accolade of being the twentieth century's most enduring female recording artist, her recording career having spanned eight decades. In 1941, Hall replaced Gracie Fields as Britain's highest paid female entertainer. Hall was loosely portrayed as the nightclub chanteuse in the Francis Ford Coppola 1984 movie The Cotton Club. It was Hall's husband, Bert Hicks, who suggested to Eric Bartholomew's mother that he should change his stage name to Morecambe, after the place of her son's birth, thereby christening the British comic duo Morecambe and Wise. In the '100 Great Records of the 1920s' Adelaide Hall is at number 26 with Duke Ellington's Orchestra singing "The Blues I Love To Sing" (Duke Ellington/Bubber Miley) Victor 21490, 1927. Published in 1998, Marsha Hunt's novel Like Venus Fading was inspired by the lives of Adelaide Hall (known as the lightly-tanned Venus), Josephine Baker and Dorothy Dandridge. Underneath a Harlem Moon, 2013/2014 Sing to the Moon by Laura Mvula During 2013, British singer Laura Mvula revealed in a Blues and Soul interview with assistant editor Pete Lewis that her song Sing to the Moon (from her hit debut album Sing to the Moon, RCA/Sony Music) was inspired by the biography of Adelaide Hall by Iain Cameron Williams titled Underneath a Harlem Moon: The Harlem to Paris Years of Adelaide Hall (2003) Well, the actual song Sing to the Moon came from a time when I was reading a book called Underneath a Harlem Moon, which is a biography of a jazz singer called Adelaide Hall, which is basically all about how she kind of was overlooked, or probably didn't get the recognition she perhaps deserved. Plus it also talks about how she'd had a hard time growing up, because her sister – who she was very close to – had died tragically of an illness.... So anyway, there's a point in the story where she describes her close relationship with her father, which I think kind of resonated with me – where she talks about the conversations she had with him and how he used to say to her randomly 'Sing to the moon and the stars will shine', which kind of became her thing really that she just took with her everywhere.... And I don't know why, but for some reason it just struck some kind of chord with me – you know, it was just something I seemed to connect with at that time. And so because of that, it then became a saying that I liked to use myself.... So yeah, because it's become something I personally like to express, I just thought Sing to the Moon would also make a good title for the album as a whole. On 11 August 2014, Laura Mvula released her second album, an orchestral version of her top 10 debut album Sing to the Moon, and on 19 August 2014 Laura appeared at The Proms at the Royal Albert Hall performing her entire album Sing to the Moon accompanied by the Metropole Orkest. After Midnight, Broadway musical 2013/14 A new musical revue After Midnight featuring the classic music of Duke Ellington, Dorothy Fields & Jimmy McHugh, and Harold Arlen premiered to much praise at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York on 3 November 2013 and was booked through to 31 August 2014 The show is an idealised fantasy of Harlem in its 1920s/30's heyday and salutes the black musicians and performers such as Ethel Waters, Adelaide Hall, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington and the Nicholas Brothers who became international stars during that era. At least three of the songs that Adelaide Hall introduced to the world are performed in the show including the headliner Fantasia Barrinos rendition of I Can't Give You Anything but Love, Baby and Carmen Ruby Floyd's performance of Duke Ellington's and Adelaide Hall's Creole Love Call. The song Diga Diga Do also appears in the show. A Nite at the Cotton Club, 2014 A new stage show, A Nite at the Cotton Club produced by Lydia Dillingham opened at the Southern Broadway Diner Theatre at The Historic Hildreth Brothers Building in Alabama, USA in February 2014 in which the actress Brandy Davis portrays Adelaide Hall. The entire run sold out. ASCAP 100 Years, 2014 On 14 February 2014, ASCAP (The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) celebrated their Centenary by publishing a timeline of songs chosen to represent the past hundred years. One song was chosen to represent each year. Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh’s song I Can't Give You Anything but Love, Baby, written for the Broadway revue Blackbirds of 1928, was chosen for 1928 and Adelaide Hall’s recording of the song was chosen to represent the year

Opone Chris DEFENSIVE FRAILTIES UNDERMINE UNITED AGAIN...AS BLIND RESCUES A POINT The burning question remains how Manchester United never added to their defensive ranks in the last transfer window, after departing with the services of stalwarts like Nemanja Vid Read more ... ic, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra. LVG's reign has so far been defined by poor defensive showings, and against Westbromwich Albion at the Hawthorns tonight, that nostalgia played out again. The first goal was clearly the fault of Luke Shaw, who was caught napping and dangerously out of position, while the second could be credited to Phil Jones. The England defender forayed into the midfield (like he often does), neglecting his primary chore, and allowing Saidho Berahino to add to his tally (six for the season). United went to the break a goal down, but Marouane Fellaini, who came on for the unfit Ander Herrera restored parity at the forty seventh minute to fire a canon that thundered to the net at 91km/hour. United were on the high after equalizing, but Jones' demons overwhelmed him to gift the home side against the run of play. United had a giant share of the possession (63%), but could hardly penetrate the a well organized Westbrom back line. The threat from the visitors seemed extinguished when Di Maria was substituted for Ashley Young. The Argentinian appeared to have picked a knock earlier. Juan Mata was substituted for Radamel Falcao, but it was Daley Blind who kept a calm head to slot the ball past the Westbrom keeper with three minutes of regulation time remaining. With club legend, Bobby Charlton and Executive Vice Chairman, Malcolm Glazer in the director's box, overlooking proceedings, the need to add to the United back line come January in the face of continued mediocre performances in this vital area becomes the more urgent. United must splash out the cash again to acquire a decent defensive midfielder, and at least two class central defenders who are 'natural' leaders on the field. However, before this, returnee club legend, Michael Carrick could sit in front of the back two to curtail Jones' 'excesses' in the middle of the pack. Again, Blind could have a more prominent role further afield, as his intelligence, distribution and ability to create space for himself could be exploited. LVG could actually try his country man in the 'number 10' role, especially with Mata consistently underwhelming. RVP is fast looking past his prime, and for all his abilities, the Dutchman could sit out some games for the less technical, but workaholic Wayne Rooney. United need all the physicality, and the burly England captain brings this in abundance to the party. A frontline of Falcao and the captain should be given an extended run. Teenage sensation and Belgian wonder kid, Adnan Januzaj has all the attributes of a young CR7, but refused to take his chances on the night. SAF kept faith with a seemingly recalcitrant CR7 before the Madeira born genius started blossoming. United's stumbles show just how difficult it is to mend a team that was allowed to decay for too long. Liverpool remains a classic example of how difficult it is to come back amongst the elites when one slips for too long. This is why United must spend, and spend and spend again in January. This is modern football after all!

News_24_365 3 things we learned from Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with West Brom Yet again, Manchester United were disappointing defensively, dropping points against West Bromwich Albion. Manchester United are back out of the the top four after dropping two Read more ... points away to West Bromwich Albion on Monday. They got an excellent late goal from Daley Blind to salvage a result, but will be disappointed in the performance that resulted in a 2-2 draw. The Red Devils looked out of sorts from the beginning, committing some very bad turnovers, and they were made to pay for one just eight minutes into the match. Andre Wisdom made the run forward to start the move for West Brom, catching the entire United midfield and defense out of position on his run down the right. With Luke Shaw caught up the pitch, Blind pinched in to cover, and Marcos Rojo didn’t adjust. When Wisdom squared to Stephane Sessegnon, no one was there to close him down, and he placed a shot into the top corner from the edge of the box. Slowly but surely, Manchester United started to assert control over the game and they were firmly the better side by the half-hour mark. Angel Di Maria forced Boaz Myhill into a very tough save on a knuckling shot in the 30th minute and Juan Mata had a chance to take a direct free kick from 20 yards not long after that, but put his shot well over the bar, and United had to settle for a goalless first half. To the surprise of everyone, Marouane Fellaini was brought off the bench to start the second half, replacing Ander Herrera, who had looked off the pace. And even more shockingly, Fellaini managed to score a brilliant goal immediately after entering the game, his first in the Premier League for United. He took a Di Maria cross off his chest, controlled, then hit a scorching half-volley into the roof of the net to bring the Red Devils level. But the Baggies continued to look threatening, and retook the lead in the 65th minute. Phil Jones and Rafael were both well out of position when Saido Berahino blew between them to get on the end of a through ball by Chris Brunt, then curl a perfect shot around David De Gea, restoring his team’s lead. Louis van Gaal responded by bringing Radamel Falcao off the bench, and while he didn’t make a direct impact from the start, his presence might have aided Robin van Persie. The Dutchman appeared to have scored with a brilliant strike from 20 yards in the 74th minute, but the ball struck the inside of the post and bounced away. As time wore on, an equalizer started to look likely, and Blind was the man who delivered for United. A Rafael cross was headed clear, but only as far as United’s defensive midfielder, who stepped up and curled an absolutely gorgeous low shot that looped around Myhill’s hand and turned in at the near post. It happened immediately after West Brom made a defensive position, bringing Youssuf Mulumbu on for Stephane Sessegnon, and Blind’s goal was the result of the type of space that Mulumbu was brought in to take away. United got the ball into the West Brom penalty area plenty of times between then and the final whistle, but the Baggies defended well — if a bit frantically — at the end to hang on to a point. West Bromwich Albion: Myhill, Pocognoli, Lescott, Dawson, Wisdom, Brunt, Gardner, Morrison, Dorrans, Sessegnon (Mulumbu 86′), Berahino Goals: Sessegnon (8′), Berahino (65′) Manchester United: De Gea, Shaw, Rojo, Jones, Rafael, Blind, Di Maria (Young 77′), Herrera (Fellaini 46′), Mata (Falcao 72′), Januzaj, van Persie Goals: Fellaini (48′), Blind (87′) 3 things 1. Saido Berahino is legitimately good – After six goals in eight Premier League games, with one the one scored on Monday being of the highest quality, Berahino can’t be thought of as a flash in the pan anymore. He’s finally added composure in front of goal to the great movement, pace and technique that he’s always had, and he’s going to score more. 2. United’s defense isn’t improving – If this group is any good, they should probably be a bit better by now. There weren’t any youngsters like Tyler Blackett and Patrick McNair in this team — it was a group of expensive, experienced professionals. And they were awful. 3. Juan Mata is broken – The Spaniard hasn’t had a single good performance for the Red Devils this season, and he might have been at his worst on Monday. The rumors of him getting sold in January are going to heat up even more after this performance.

PRESS RELEASE SPECIAL TRAINS TO OPERATE TO CORWEN on 22 OCTOBER 2014 The Llangollen Railway is pleased to announce the arrangements for a first day of steam hauled trains to the new temporary platform at Dwyrain Corwen East on Wednesday, 22 October Read more ... 2014. This will be the first time in nearly fifty years that passenger trains have arrived at Corwen since services were suspended in December 1964, prior to formal closure of the line by British Railways in January 1965. The special trains to celebrate the completion of phase 1 of the extension project are due to arrive at Corwen at: 11.35, 13.45 and 15.54. The five coach trains for this special service will be topped and tailed by locomotives GWR No.3802 and Black Five No.45337. They will stop in the platform for 10 minutes whilst arrangements are made to reverse back out. The first two trains, due to leave Llangollen at 11.00 and 13.00, are reserved for invited passengers only. The third departure at 1500 will convey members of the public who wish to purchase tickets at the premium rate of £25, on sale from Llangollen station after 1330. A commemorative card ticket in the traditional style will be issued. On this first occasion no tickets will be issued for travel from Corwen. The operation of the Special Trains with two locomotives is required as no run round loop is available at the temporary station. This will require a stop over at Carrog on the return journey whilst one locomotive is detached. It will be attached to the next working to Corwen. In view of the large numbers of passengers arriving by the first two trains, on this occasion access to the platform by spectators will be restricted for safety reasons. Inspection of the new structure may be permitted once trains have departed, at the discretion of the Railway’s station staff. George Jones, for Llangollen Railway Trust, said, “The arrival of the first Special Trains to Corwen celebrates the achievement of the rebuilding of the line west from Carrog. The project has been a considerable challenge in terms of applying the available limited resources and the problems which have been encountered. The work undertaken by the volunteer work force, aided by our full time staff and contractors, demonstrates that determination and enthusiasm overcame all the obstacles. The Llangollen Railway Trust wishes to acknowledge the help and assistance it has received from its many supporters and well wishers whose contributions have ensured the success of project. The formal opening ceremony for the line extension will be held at Dwyrain Corwen East station on 1 March 2015.”
