mick's up



it's ace this guest spot thingy. i just get to lounge around knocking back highballs willy nilly while the tunes and whatnot come tumbling in. this week it's the 99p soul brains behind the operation and chief pomade supplier slick mick bierne... sock it to em mb...

"You may have noticed that I've jumbled together a not too coherent selection - I love them all of course. They are a loose basket of originals, covers and a bit of theft - that's the I Know a Man Who and That's Love. One of them has nicked the chorus from the other (I suspect Sugar Hill are the guilty party, but I don't really know) - thought it might be of some interest, (maybe not)"

the intruders - rainy days and mondays

joe bataan - crystal blue persuasion

dee dee warwick - i'm gonna make you love me

tony joe white - what does it take

sammy davis jnr - up up and away

rance allen - i know a man who

sugar hill - that's love

and for the determined easy accesser...

Lovely stuff thank you. And it made me go all funny because (sadly) I remember having one of those cement mixers Matchbox things as a kid.
