Wow!  Who would have guessed that a record that I discovered in 1966, and bought for a nickel in a South Central L.A. Goodwill Store, and was given to Rod Shard to break in The UK first debuted there in 1980, would eventually be in a commercial making fun of that nation's prime minister?  And, although I never met Johnny Cochran, I've met O.J. Simpson, (a celebrity he defended).  What a small World it is!

In USA (the land of Soul music, were lucky if we hear a Supremes' song on a commercial, and in The UK, unrelesed and unpressed recordings by The Cashmeres, and virtually unreleased cuts by Gwen Owens and Rita and The Tiaras, ad infinitum, are played as Muzak, and used on TV commercials.  What a bizarre world!

They have Soul music used on commercials -just not RARE Soul (that never made it to the radio during its initial sales run.  They only use songs that were monster hits.  "Stand by Me" was a mega hit.  They've never used unreleased cuts and songs like "Just Say You're Wanted and Needed" by Gwen Owens, and songs off acetates that were never released like The Cashmeres on HEM.  They mean nothing to the average American.  But then, I never thought that Northern  Soul would be recognised by mainstream Britain.
