Some Sunday Soul
You very nearly never got Some Sunday Soul this week as I am somewhat short in both material and inspiration.
I'll persevere for a wee while but a short break from this series may be in order.
Today's songs come from a somewhat unusual source a CD called Forever Mod which contains 48 tunes of smokin' jazz,sensual soul, stormin' ska and classic blues which apparetly influenced the Mod movement.
The sensual soul tracks include the likes of Irma Thomas, Bobby Bland,Arthur Alexander and Ester Phillips.
I have opted for a couple of crackers courtesy of Ike and Tina and Gladys Knight & the Pips.
I don't own any albums by Gladys& the Pips and would be grateful for some suggestions as I suspect that there may well be more chaff than wheat out there
More soul next Sunday (maybe!)
Ike and Tina Turner - A Fool in Love
Gladys Knight & the Pips - Every Beat of my Heart
