Door 24 already, another Advent-ure over! It has really flown by this year. A tradition that has developed here is to play out with a track from the classic Ronettes album A Christmas Gift For You. All that is left for me to do is to raise a glass and wish you all a very Merry (and safe) Christmas ..read more

Yesterday I featured Timmy Willis' last outing on wax, any today, by coincidence, it would appear that this single was Maurice Williams' last record. Maurice Williams had started his recording career in 1957 as part of the group The Gladiolas (renamed from The Royal Charms as other groups were also using that name) they scored a sizeable R&B hit record straight away with Little Darlin' (Maurice ..read more

I have been feeling a bit nostalgic for the 70s this last few days, probably fuelled by watching episodes of Fawlty Towers and The Sweeney (it's a Christmas thing with me). The early 70s was when music first became an essential part of my world, and the wah wah funk of this track places it unmistakably from that era. Very little is known of Timmy Willis, or Henry Sapp to give him is real name ..read more

I'm a sucker for a moody and melancholy tune. Here is one I initially heard on one of the always excellent Dogpatch podcasts. Each podcast has a rough theme and features music (always obscure) from the record collections of Dante Carfagna and Jon Kirby interspersed with wonderful dosings of their “color commentary” (to quote their About line). Always brilliant, and always educational if you ..read more

For some reason I have never really given Wilson Pickett that much attention. I know his big hits, but perhaps because those are so familiar I had never really thought to explore his catalog any further. A few weeks ago I picked up a few of his singles to start to put that right. Earlier in this series I featured “The New Bloods” covering one of the Wicked one's songs, so here he is covering ..read more

There were so many great soul vocal groups around in the 60s and into the 70s it's no surprise that some remained a little under the radar. (The) Natural Four hailed from Oakland, California and formed around 1967. Their first (or possibly second) 45 was released on the wonderfully named Boola-Boola label in 1969. It is a seriously rare and expensive record nowadays. It is also seriously ..read more

I am completely hooked on Mack Stevens YouTube channel (I Buy Old Records) this past few months. I can happily spend hours watching him riffle through the little ones with the big holes at thrifts and antique malls in Texas, Oklahoma, and all States south. The volume of stuff (granted a lot of it is 70s Country and Pop chuff) he seems to be able to dig through in these places is impressive, and ..read more

Here's a piece of very classy early disco. South Shore Commission, scored a big hit with Free Man in 1975, which registered as Billboard's #1 disco record of that year. This track featured on their one and only album and makes an appearance here as the B side to Free Man's follow up - We're On The Right Track. The right track turned out to be a siding as the tracks from their album were never ..read more
