Crackly Old Soul


It is halfway through half term and the sun's been shining through the clocks going back; crackly old soul's what I'm after - so here some is.

This song and me have been friends for a long time.

It's the 'flip' (!) of 'Sweet Soul Music'. Great churchy organ on it.

Arthur Conley - 'Let's Go Steady' (1967)

  5. Aaaah, lovely stuff to accompany a late-night beer and an open fire. Now, what did I do with those old soul compilations?

  6. Thanks for askin' Davy boy.
    Leeds Museum seem to have used the Community Tax payers' dosh to invest in a rather large grizzly bear. My little un announced to the packed room, "Look dad, you can see where they've stuffed it".

  7. Semi-sidebar: I love the 45's that don't require the adaptor thingy. We couldn't do without that adaptor it seems, Stateside.

  8. When I were a lad the ones that needed adaptors were mostly second hand ones that had come off pub jukeboxes. Bliss.

  9. Never understood that about american imports, all singles came without a middle but none of the lps, was it assumed that all singles would eventually end up in jukeboxes, if not why did they not do the same with 12"s or was it just cheaper to produce them like that? Just another difference between us and our colonial cousins.
