The last song on the Empire was 'Long Tall Sally'. I'm glad your step-father enjoyed 'Tuesday Rendezvous' (Give him my regards and tell him I'm sure he's the best looking step-father in Queen's Drive.) I'm sure it was nothing to do with me that you passed your mock G.C.E., but if I can be of any assistance, call on my photo any time...(big head) HEE! HEE! Anyway, thanks again for everything, Jenny, Cheerio', and signed and inscribed in blue ink by Paul, 20.5 x 25.5cm (8 x 10in)
