The Magic Highway


An interview from the Jewish Ttelegraph, June 2013

ClippingRock'n'roll legend Christie blasted out hit after hit to end JFest International with a bang, writes David Saffer.
   Persuading Leeds-born singer-songwriter Jeff Christie to grace the event was some coup.
   It guaranteed a large turnout to conclude the festival, and those present whooped up every song.
   The show coincided with the 43rd anniversary of Christie's hit song Yellow River hitting No 1 in the UK charts, so to hear it performed live was a privilege.
   Once a rocker always a rocker, and Christie know how to deliver a classic song.
   Hits also included San Bernadino and Iron Horse. But there was plenty more as Christie reeled off Free classic All Right Now, CCR hits Bad Moon Rising and Proud Mary, Dave Edmunds' I Hear You Knocking and Byrds number Feel a Whole Lot Better, to name but a few.
   Ending on a high, Christie concluded the set with Ain't That a Shame and Johnny B Goode.
   And so another festival comes to an end. It's still a major player communally. Roll on 2014.
