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 !

Feel free to give me a shout : waltjabsco@hotmail.com

OTIS REDDING & CARLA THOMAS : King And Queen (1967)

Great 1967 Stax collaboration by the great Otis Redding & fantastic Carla Thomas/ (More Otis & Carla material on the blog - get searching !). As much as I love this stuff, I always hated the dreadful (playing card) artwork on the LP cover... so here instead is a 1967 period pic of Otis & Carla @ Stax, with Booker T Jones (of the MGs) shown seated.
