we're a winner
the contrast podcast crew have traveled back to 1967 this week without ,thank gawd, the merest hint of moptop and only a drop or two of pachouli.
for me it was the easiest one to pick a tune for for a while. the impressions 'we're a winner' has been somewhere very near the top of my singles pile since my pal richard first introduced me to the glorious pleasures of curtis mayfield and suffers terribly from being played at pretty much every do i've ever played records at.can you imagine this being practically banned by radio at the time. idiots. it's only competition came from the wish to remember john coltrane, who died that year, even though it's really the piano beauty of mccoy tyner that makes me melt, and the village hall disco floor filler of my youth 'there's a ghost in my house'. it's tunes like this that make me want to flatten every idiot that still spouts the tragic drivel about the beadles inventing music...
so freedom sounds, northern floorshakers and modal madness it is then
the impressions - we're a winner
