I've returned refreshed from my period of R&R ready and raring to go.
A few new purchases to subject you to. Nothing startling but a fairly eclectic mixed bag which hopefully therein you will all find something to enjoy
I'm going to post them in a chronological order from when purchased which is as good a way as any.
First up is the only non-charity purchase. Big Sensations is the latest offer from Mojo magazine purchased in Girvan. As a rule I only buy Mojo or Uncut these days for holiday reading.They are a bit ahead of themselves as this CD is listed as from May 2018.
According to the blurb we have 15 Floor Fillers of Maximum R& B 45s from the Dawn of Mod.
That period in the early 60s when jazz influences were still strong but where American R&B was gradually establishing a foot hold.
I've gone for Juanita Nixon with her 1960 number Stop Knockin' on the King Record Label. Attributed as the B side to the A side of Let Me Be Free the original will set you back by about 85 quid according to Discogs.
Chicago based McKinley "Soul" Mitchell's 1962 single The Town I Live In on the One-Derful label is altogether more accessible and cheaper to obtain.
