Today’s trax

I’d rather go blind  –  Margie Joseph (This trak was very much affiliated with Etta James … but this obliterate the others)

Going out of my head  –  Esther Phillips (Creed Taylor – owner of Kudu records decided to get Esther to record an lp of covers as she had a hit with a discofied version of the Dinah Washington evergreen)

Fire   –  Ohio Players (Though they were famed for the lp covers – a bald headed black woman on usually a gatefold sleeve – this was the trak that set the world alight)

Jump for joy   –  Joi Cardwell  (Jokingly called ‘Lady Eightball’ because she was the most consistent  artist on said label)
