Those nasty record company guys have taken the video of Stevie singing this down ...

.... so we have to make do with this 'foreign' version (it beats the Lime IMO)...

When you think of music from the Motor City, Oslo probably isn't the first place that springs to mind. But fans of Norwegian singer Wenche Myhre must have been dancing in the streets when they first heard this little corker. Issued in 1967, the song proved a hit for the singer in her homeland. By that time, she had also become one of a host of Scandinavian dolls to be taken to the German bosom, scoring a string of hits from 1965 onwards.

After relocating to Germany, she entered the 1965 Deutsche Schlager-Festpiele song contest in Baden-Baden as she would get to appear before millions of German tv viewers. Although she finished in 2nd place behind Peggy March, her performance was enough to launch her career.

Monkey Talk - great bluesy track IMO and a brilliant showcase for his harmonica playing.

Uptight is still one of the greatest Northern Soul sounds ever........imho.........I could never keep my backside on a seat when this hits the tables!!!!

And of course....it becomes even MORE Northern if you buy it on an American release!!! :lol:

I remember buying this with money from my paper round.

Purchased from our local record store with listening booths on the wall. How things have changed since then.

The one thing that hasn't changed is that I like this record just as much today as I did then.

Plus that very record is still in my collection.

A notification from just after the war providing a chance to rejuvenate this thread. David Porter keeping it on the dark side.

Just how good is "Uptight". I've always rated it but as I get older I just think it gets better and better. Brilliant music and so simply put together. Love it.

When thinking of Stevie, the first thing that comes to my mind is he will be seen as the equivalent of Bach/Beethoven etc in hundreds of years time.  His catalogue is unbelievable and he also puts on one of the best live shows in the business.  Current faves are 'Something Out Of The Blue', 'Black Man' 'As', 'Knocks Me Off My Feet'.

Stevie's albums from Where I'm coming from to Songs in the key of life are arguably the most original, innovative, influential, memorable, wide ranging and brilliant recordings that were released in the last half century by a single artist.

They are that good.

I so agree with you. I went to see him at the G Mex in Manchester 30odd years ago and he played every musical instrument on the stage. Absolutely fantastically talented.

Was at Hyde Park on Saturday where Stevie explained to the crowd that he will be having kidney transplant surgery in September. 

Wishing him a speedy recovery

Indeed this stands out from the rest.

I hope his operation goes well.

I really hope I get to see him perform in the not too distant future.
