Capricorn needs the sunshine...


... and Scorpio.



I couldn’t resist buying a David Ruffin 45 in a charity shop today – from 1977 a track entitled “I Can’t Stop The Rain” – I thought it would be the perfect post considering the (lack of) summer we are experiencing in the UK this year. Spookily as I walked out of the shop the sun came out. When I got home and gave the record a spin it frankly wasn’t up to the standard necessary for posting here anyway (although the B side – “My Whole World Ended” from the previous decade -  was worth the price of entry and so the 45 was a neat summary of how soul music and Motown in eight short years had lost its magic).

So instead I give you Leo’s Sunshipp rare groove gem “Give Me The Sunshine”. Actually, it is almost five years to the day since I featured another track from their only album “We Need Each Other”. Reading that post again I notice I commented that “the British summer has been a damp squib so far”, and so here we are again. I went on then to describe a sunny weekend and it’s that I am hoping for now (actually with some optimism looking at the forecast) as Mrs Darce and I are off to Sidmouth for the weekend.

Sunny here as I type! Have to stop typing now as fingers are crossed.

Paul: Nothing obviously wrong with the link. Other have downloaded ok. Maybe filetype or site is being blocked by your isp/server?

Anybody else having problems?

I got the same message

I'm puzzled by the link issue. Some people have managed to download judging by the download count but that seems to be stuck now.

I have put up a new link to see if that's any better.

To those having problems: can you download from any any of my other recent posts?

Mediafire is also blocking access to Madeline Bell's "Love Is All" and Lamont Dozier's "Going Back to My Roots" for supposed copyright reasons, but maybe it's only us American users who are being left out. That's okay, though — I was able to hear those two and "Give Me the Sunshine" on YouTube. Thank you for the continued R&B education.

I'm in Brazil and I also get the messages. It doesn't affet the other links. By the way, I love this blog!
