Diary Blip (Monday 8th June 2020)
I now have a water meter.
They left before I could ask how you remove the cover to read the meter. The instructions online talk about undoing a single screw but I haven't found one.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
John Lee Hooker - Boom Boom (recorded December 1961, Vee Jay Studios, Chicago IL)
John Lee Hooker (vcl, ld gtr) with Larry Veeder (gtr), Ivy Joe Hunter (pno), Hank Cosby (ten sax), Mike Terry (bar sax), James Jamerson (bass), Benny Benjamin (dr)
When John Lee Hooker came over to England and appeared on TV performing Boom Boom the record was four or five years old. He had written it for a female bartender in 1961. Not many people associate John Lee with Tamla Motown but the Burnin' album from which this single comes featured a lot of their musicians moonlighting from their record label, including Martha and the Vandellas. All the musicians on this track were members of Motown's Funk Brothers house band at the time.
I have now reached December 2011 in my trawl through old music magazines and played the cover CD Dylan's Scene: The Sound Of Greenwich Village, which included this signature track. Dylan opened for John Lee Hooker at Gerde's Folk City for their Hootenanny nights over two weeks in April 1961.
