Some Sunday Talcum Soul #5
We're just about there now - with volume five of six
A wee bit more info this time around on the sleevenotes which is good but given the size of the writing reading glasses are essential.
First up are The Vontastics a Chicago vocal group with Lady Love from 1967 on the Moonshot label.
Not just toptastic George but vontastic too.
This is followed by an astonishing vocal performance on the Veep label from 1966 by Elbie Parker entitled Please Keep Away from Me. An original copy will set you back between $500 and $700 apparantly
Early on in the series Scott commented that What Can Go Wrong? by The Thrills (not the rubbish Irish band) on Capitol, from 1966, was his favourite track from the six volumes - so it would be a bit churlish not to play it especially as he is dancing to it above.
The final Talcum Soul installment next Sunday
The Vontastics - Lady Love
Elbie Parker - Please Keep Away From Me
The Thrills - What Can Go Wrong?
