Sorry i can,t post anything, but got to agree the man is a genius. One of my all time faves is his Please Let Me Kiss You Goodbye, off the super Gag A Maggot LP.

Working from home on a Sauturday? If you are, you should be tucked up in bed already........

Yep, he did, but I've not burnt it mp3 yet, so I cant post it up.

Must get some Irma thomas burnt as well.

Love the Dogg to bits!

Hey Ken, "Shipwrecked" / "Sock It To Yourself" was the first 45 I ever owned by the man, a few years before the wonderful "If You Ask Me". Worn the grooves of it as a lad.

His other Cotillion 45 "It's Still Good" / "Come And Get It" is another worthwhile track.

Quick mention for...

C & The Shells "On My Way Home" US Cotillion / UK Red Atlantic - Midtempo Magic and a teriffic ender I've used for some years.

The Doris Duke "I'm A Loser" entire album is one of the true greats. Check out "The Feeling Is Right" for a superb crossover dancer (also on Canyon 45)... but everyone needs the album!

Theres another superb Calla 45 in "Just What Do You Plan To Do About It" - not heard that played out for decades.

The Roker 45 "I Was Born Blue" is a take on the Whispers "Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong" and 'quite interesting' if nothing else.

Let's not forget the brilliant "I Got What It Takes" by Brooks O'Dell & Jerry. An essential 45 in all good record collections.

Remember waiting for the new release of the "Have You Heard This Story" LP (back in 74?) with eager anticipation and wasn't disappointed.

Favourite track being "Did I Come Back To Soon" which I also bought at the time on a UK Island 45. A tragic tale superbly told. Humour, Irony & Soul!

"In My Resume" the Cream track is also a pure Dogg delight!

Also, just remembered early 70's spin "Total Destruction To Your Mind" ... and we've only scratched the surface!

Some guy Jerry Williams.

Nice thread John.
