Cool Handbags at Dawn

"Handbags and Gladrags" isis a song written in 1967 by Mike d'Abo, who was then the lead singer of Manfred Mann. D'Abo describes the song as "saying to a teenage girl that the way to happiness is not through being trendy. There are deeper values"..The original demo tape of the original version of the song was discovered in 2004 in a closet belonging to Mo Foster.. It was amongst a collection of studio recordings d'Abo had recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s.. The collection, including the demo recording, was eventually released on the Angel Air label under the title of Missing Gems & Treasured Friends..In 1971, Bill Chase and his jazz/rock fusion group Chase recorded a version as a single. It was included on their 1971 debut album Chase.. It was sung by Ted Piercefield..One Night Only! Rod Stewart Live at Royal Albert Hall, Rod asked the audience to recall who had a hit with the song (presumably referring to the was the first!"...Stereophonics version) and claimed "I..., man, you don't talk to the Colonel. You listen to him..He's a poet warrior in the classic sensei..Did they say why, W, why they want to terminate my command-I was sent on a classified mission, sir..They told me that you had gone totally insane, and that your methods were unsound..I X=pected someone like you.. What did you X=pect...
