Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Eddie Floyd : Rare Stamps (1969)

Excellent 1969 Stax LP by the fantastic Eddie Floyd, with the addition of bonus tracks, bolstering the track listing to 25 cuts. This collection includes one of my all time favourite tunes, namely "Big Bird", written by Floyd as he sat @ Heathrow Airport, and intended as a tribute to Otis Redding, who, as we know, died in a plane crash. Stax simply does not get better than this... wonderful backing by the MG's, great horn section & a fantastic call & response vocal. Track 17..... Click on the flag to download...
