Hi all,

 

And talking of time flying if i'm not very much mistake today is the first day of autum and on this side of the Snake it's been a lovely sunny and warm day for the best part of it and hot enough to take one's shirt off and talking of which as promised and this one is definitely for the ladies here is Captain Dave "Woody" Wood in a more nautical mood.

Evening Frank,

 

No comment yet from Cap'n Wood but a photo too good not to share with the CCS regulars and hopefully i'll be forgiven enough on my next visit to The Old Nags Head to be allowed through the doors but being let loose behind the decks might be another story!

 

Well still pretty sunny over here at the moment but as the weather starts to get a little bit more autummnal the annual heath MOT might be an item on the agenda which leads me into this story.....  

 

 

Hmm...yes, the rich deep hue of a Burgundy...
I'm picking up the scent of blackcurrents and honey with some light, buttery notes...
Yes...there's a subtle backdrop of autumn fruits...
Oooh...a hint of spices...nutmeg, ginger...and a touch of pepper.
It's big, full flavoured...it practically dances on the palate.

"So Doctor, there's no problem with my urine sample then?"

Evening fellas,

 

Argh yes Woody a CCS calander now that would be something to behold, Frank as Mr September myself as Mr November and the rest of the guest CCS DJ's making up the other months....the mind boggles as they say!

Well best get on with a spot of business, and for those of you who have asked, the "CCS Top Ten" will be arriving any day into my e.mail in-tray and will get posted as soon as possible but in the meantime here are a few selections from the up and coming playlist to feature on the 28th....

 

Tonights selection come from "Mr October" himself

 

Teddy Randazzo "You Don't Need A Heart" DCP International Records

 

Perhaps far better known for his song writing than his singing New York born Randazzro is no stranger to the world of popular music along firstly with his song composing partner, Bobby Weinstien then later with Bobby Hart, Randanzzo and Wienstien have the honour of having one of the world most recored songs in history to their credit that being the classic namely "Goin' Out Of My Head" and is now officially included in the Top 50 most recorded songs of all time with sales in excess of 100 million by well over 400 artists and is often reguared as production masterpiece.

 

"You Don't Need A Heart" seems talior made for the full "Little Anthony And The Imperials" treatment but it's Teddy Randazzo who does the vocal honours this time, with a big studio production that is there from the very opening bars and with it's tender but well delievered vocal this is a very well produced (also by Randazzro) "beat ballard" that echoes the names Bacharach and David but this is very much a compliment and not a criticism, "You Don't Need A Heart" packs a very much emotionally charged performance into a mere 2:29, with a huge musical build up that punches well above it's weight and then some" this is truely a classy track that can only be said is going to gain in value over the coming years.

 

On a lighter note Woody (or Mr October as we now call him) informs me this latest acquisition is little more than a collection filler and will be moved along when a better copy comes on the market as the discs play quality leaves a lot to be desired [and on a confessional note i was bidding on the same record without knowing and might have helped push the auction price up!]  

 

***Also checkout Patti Page's version of "You Dont Need A Heart" on Columbia Records ***

Evening Fellas,

 

On the Georgie Fame "Northern Soul, R'n'B" Mod, playlist vibe here are the ones i can think of but i'm guessing they will be others on his numerous albums.

 

Somebody Stole My Thunder (perhaps his most widely played?

 

Let The Good Time Roll

 

Seventh Son

 

Sweet Thing

 

Ride Your Pony

 

Work Song

Evening Frank,

 

If i was to hazard a guess i would say "Somebody Stole My Thunder" but Georgie if you're reading this please don't play or go anywhere near "The Ballad Of Bonnie And Clyde (the gun battle section in the original recording is truely awful) and Frank please don't request it!

 

Frankie "M" Is The CCS Man For September

 

captionit4234834459B82_zps207235e9.jpg

 

So best be moving on with some more CCS selections from "Mr Octobers" box, and here we also have some "Woody's words of wisdom" Woody informs me, "if you are after a copy of ths cut by Stevie Wonder on 7' vinyl look out for the entire Motown Box Set 7's Vol 2 and buy the record as part of the set at one point copies were changing hands for upwards of £25, while a complete set with this inclued can be had if your lucky for around the £50 mark at most (and Woody picked his set via Amazon for far less than that) see link below!

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Motown-Box-Volume-VINYL/dp/B00JA0HE0K%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAIXMCBZWUOROXOPDQ%26tag%3Dxxsa01-21%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00JA0HE0K&ascsubtag=CP6uyurNh8ECFcsJwwodHhAAsQ

 

 

You get an extra 6 records for £25 making the other disc only £5 each [Vol 1 is spilt all the time]

 

Stevie Wonder "I Want My Baby Back" Tamla Motown (From The Box Set "Motown 7's Box Set Vol 2)

 

"I Want My Baby Back" by Stevie Wonder only saw light of day on the "Uptight" album released here on the Tamla Motown record label and the British Music For Pleasure album of the same name, the song did get a US release by Edwin Starr on both the US Gordy and the UK Tamla Motown label (strangely the writing credits are different on this single by Edwin Starr to the ones on the listed on the MFP album)

 

Both versions are pretty similar but perhaps to my ears the Stevie Wonder version packs a little more punch, with a great finger clicking intro that means business from the very start and with a pounding beat and driving lyrics that don't stop to take a breath or for that matter even think to draw air, throw into the mix a combination of the Funk Brothers and Earl Van Dyke and here we have a pretty high octane dancer paced on the just over easy setting on "the dance'o'meter" with a raspy sax break that shouts Motown. "I Want My Baby Back" moves along like juiced up tsunami but it's the beat that sets this Detroit spin a little bit above the rest. Once more proving just how much talent and class were at Motown when the likes of this track was reserved for an album use only.

hi Russ

where did you get the photo of me , showing clearly that I work out !!! , in all honesty I don't have a six pack more a crate !! . On the motown releases I have heard theres another one in the pipeline coming soon with some very tasty

tunes indeed . I am guilty of buying the Kim Weston and the Stevie discs as individuals but my best offers which

were accepted were good value .

Anyway its the big push for our event starting today and becoming expert on using the soul media to push City Centre Soul

which is vital in these competitive days .

speak soon

A liitle off centre with this post but as i'm sure you're aware i'm not the greatest fan of  imageseaby_zps7902226a.jpg

 

And this song by Wierd Al Yankovic just about sums it up for me and if you haven't heard it before or are a regular user of fleabay-logo_zpsa97b26de.png

You might find some of the comments pretty true....enjoy!
