    Several months ago, I said on this forum that I had listened to a YouTube video of member Joel and thought he was ‘rubbish’. My basis for this, (although I didn´t explain) is I have always seen myself as more ‘rock chick’ than an easy listening, cruise liner sort of person. Secondly, it was a very bad video and the reason I now know that is I actually heard Joel last night in Placeres.

    When we arrived he was already singing, he sang non-stop and was still going strong when we left more than 3 hours later. I originally thought the music might be a bit obtrusive while we were eating and trying to talk. Like my ‘rubbish’ comment above, I was wrong AGAIN!

    Joel has a very smooth voice; it flows seemingly effortlessly like silk. He sang romantic songs, pop songs of our era and even some up to date songs so his appeal spanned the generations, as there were youngsters there too. As the evening wore on several of us turned the restaurant into a dance floor (well more clutch and shuffle in the case of some!). Joel took requests and sang a couple of my all time favourites ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’, and ‘Smile’. People opposite asked for music to slit your wrists by Mr Leonard Cohen but that was only one song out of possibly 70 or 80 that he played.

    I was rather touched when he did a couple of Everly Brothers numbers as my brother-in-law was a good friend of theirs and he died recently. The strange thing is that whoever’s songs Joel covered be it Billy Joel, Neil Diamond, Dean Martin etc he sounded exactly like them. I got to the point where I was looking for the tape but no it was all the man himself.

    To summarize, I think this rock chick is an easy listener at heart because she certainly knew every line of every song that was performed and thoroughly enjoyed herself. It is certainly Jim’s sort of music and it made a lovely birthday treat a special evening.

    Thank you Joel we look forward to hearing you again.

    Just heading back to the UK after a great week on the island, it was so nice to meet Gypsy and Jim and we have some great photo's of her dancing at Placeres. It was a joy to play there twice and catch-up with some good friends. Thanks to all on the forum for your comments and good wishes. Hope to see some of you in January until then best regards ...Joel David
