Cheers Ally,

Spinning wheel by Sammy Davis is a blinder of a track. It certainly has brightened my Saturday up.

I've had so much great music off of Dusty Sevens over the last couple of years it's just a pleasure to bat a couple of tunes back in the opposite direction. And it's always a pleasure to catch up with you and E for a pint. See you at 99p Soul!

Fantastic stuff - I'm loving it all.

And you can NEVER have too much Louis Jordan. Or Lionel Hampton. Or Jackie Mittoo. Or...

PS Have been listening to Terry Riley's In C a lot lately - thanks for that tip-off Spud.

Cheers Cocktails. I've been lurking round your blog too. Very much enjoyed that modded-up version of 'Soul Sauce' that you put up recently...

Ta Davy. You've been a pretty hep cat y'self over at TGOE with your Mingus and your Courtney.

(P.S. If you like Lee Fields, and you're not shy of instrumentals, check out his labelmates El Michel's Affair. If you haven't already.)
