Some Sunday Soul
Whilst dusting down Uncut and Mojo compilations for the Saturday Lucky Dip series I have occasionally stumbled across a Soul gem or two.
I have been reluctant to post them the day before Soul Sunday as you can have too much of a good thing.
However no Saturday Lucky Dip this week so it is time to give a couple of them an airing
First up is Donny Hathaway who Scott and George have been waxing lyrically about recently
Here is his version of the great To Be Young Gifted & Black
Donny is followed by Chairman of the Board who were active in the 70s . I had it in my head that they were a band in the mould of Lieutenant Pigeon of Mouldy Old Dough fame. Maybe I'm getting confused with Middle of the Road!
However I can confirm that Chairman of the Board were indeed funky as Finder's Keepers clearly demonstrates.
Donny Hathaway - To Be Young, Gifted & Black
Chairman of the Board - Finder's Keepers
Since drafting this I've obtained a Best of Donny Hathaway - fantastic stuff
