    It is good ..

    Also..£9 for 3 hours doesn't sound like much but it wasn't that bad for 1967.

    When Kevin Keegan joined Liverpool from Scunthorpe in May 1971, Bill Shankly’s first wage offer was £45 per week. In his 1977 autobiography, Keegan recalled: ‘I wanted to sign there and then but remembered that my father had told me not to sell myself cheap.’ Keegan told Shankly he expected more than £45. Shankly replied: ‘That’s upsetting. Don’t forget, young man, we’re paying £33,000 for you.’ Keegan’s basic wage at Scunthorpe, in the old Fourth Division, had been £30 a week, with £8 win bonus and £4 draw bonus. Keegan and Shankly eventually settled on a starting wage of £50 a week at Liverpool.

    Fascinating stuff. When I think of session musicians, I don't tend to think of harpists, but I suppose there may be quite a lot of work for a good player. Think of all those film and TV sequences where the screen dissolves to a fantasy or flashback scene!

    RIP Sheila.

    Beatles sidekick passes on at age 92

    Sheila Bromberg, harpist on She's Leaving Home off the Sgt. Pepper album. Paid $17 for a three-hour studio session, she didn't know that it was for the Beatles. Just play this, thank you very much! Also played on studio sessions for Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Bing Crosby, Michael Jackson, Bond films & the Monty Python folks. Cousin of Dylan guitarist David Bromberg.
