Recommended Posts

ive lot count of the amount of blind buys ive got on the basis of a genre title thats ended up been a sham.

Know what you mean.I bought a Northern/ Iraqi funk / death metal / popcorn / Soul / jazzfunk / punk / Wigan classic, - it was none of those.

ha! ive seen them almost that bad. id love to hear some iraqi death metal punk funk

what annoys me if when you get a tune billed as soul that looks proper obscure and its a country record. or funk and it turns out its a rock tune is another fave.

and of course Come Tomorrow is a cover version of a soul tune..Marie Knight i think .Persionally  think it's a great tune,,whatever genre it's it is...or in this case isn't :)

 

What about "Invitation" Played a lot on the scene by a group that became Manfred Mann.? So we might be getting close!

 

Mike D'Abo was the lead singer on Invitation..and he joined the Manfreds shortly after

Invitation - 'Band Of Angels'.

I like some of Manfred Mann's early stuff '64/65 when they had a bit of a Mod sound.  Later stuff like 'Pretty Flamingo' was a great tune.

 

what about mike vickers of manfred mann - on the brink(instumental),covered as boogaloo investigator,great record

Always thought this rare EP only track by Paul Jones had something of a NS sound...from the poppy end of NS obviously but still a pretty good track...

Yeah, not bad. As a keen collector of British 60's Mod &Soul.....just purchased :) Thanks for posting.
