Kenny Lynch – Half The Day Is Gone & We Haven’t Earned A Penny (Ashley Beedle Remix)
What do The Brill Building, Cilla Black, Paul McCartney and the Caister Soul Weekender all have in common? Well it’s the dapper dan Kenny Lynch, the recently deceased UK actor, singer & songwriter. His obscure British boogie classic has been remade by Ashley Beedle who completely rearranges the song with a sparse funky guitar, tight disco beats and glorious piano throughout from wizard Darren Morris, The result is a piece of sunshine that would no doubt put a massive smile on Kenny’s face.
