Tapping My Feet #14

I’m listening to BBC 6 Music more and more lately. The mix of DJs and music seems to be getting better and better and music of black origin finally seems to be getting a much fairer crack of the whip (or is it just that it’s dance month?).

It was great to hear this on the radio recently, and again today Huey Morgan played Richie Haven’s version.

Used to play Lamont Dozier (the original) and Odyssey’s version a lot back in my DJing days. 

This YouTube entry for Odyssey’s version is worth look and listen. The sound quality is superb – and the dancing (and spelling) is awful (definitely Top Of The Pops styley and not Soul Train).

Ooh – went off station for a while there.

I need to follow on from my previous post with some more from the Five Stairsteps as a way of retuning.

This is for you Ben, your request duly dug out from near the back of the A-G box (soul, collecting phase 2).    

Once again a sublime B-side in “Little Boy Blue” originally recorded by The Impressions in 1964. Curtis is in the house!

The A-side is well worth a spin too.
