Saturday Shuffle 57


Given that the Euros are in full flow it was good to see the shuffle throw up a song with Europe in the title. However Radio Free Europe by R.E.M. appeared here just a few days ago. Excellent though it is it didn't feel right to feature it twice in a week.

Zombies however have not appeared here for a while. Here is Time of the Season from the 50th Anniversary of the album Odessey and Oracle by The Zombies. The shuffle came up with the remix of this song but I've opted for the original version. I'm playing fast and loose with the rules this week aren't I?

Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos) is a protest song written by the great Woodie Guthrie and is based on a true story. It has been covered a number of times including this version by Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore from their album Downey to Lubbock

We conclude with some fairly obscure Motown namely Does Your Mama Know About Me by Bobby Taylor & the Vancouvers from the CD Tamla Motown Big Hits and Hard to Find Classics 1.

More big hits and hard to find classics next Saturday
