Lee Allen - "Promenade"

Here is the flip side to "Walkin' With Mr. Lee," which I posted back in 2011.

A couple trivia items about Lee Allen;He played three shows in October 1981 with the Rolling Stones: on October first at the Metro Centre (Rockford, Illinois), and on the third and the fourth at Folsom Field(Boulder, Colorado). According to Ian McLagan, who played keyboards with the Stones on the 1981 Tattoo You tour, Allen was so bewildered by playing with the Stones for over 80,000 people in attendance "he [Allen] completely choked up". Audio recordings of the shows confirm McLagan. Allen was replaced by Ernie Watts for the remainder of the tour.
After Allen's death, Blasters member Dave Alvin dedicated the song "Mister Lee" to Allen.
