Today’s trax



What part of heaven do you come from  –  Ray Barretto featuring Phillip Mitchell (Phillip was more successful as a song writer than a singer … his songs has been recorded by artists including Candi Staton, Bobby Womack, The Staple Singers  – his most famous been ‘Hurt so good’)

Don’t let my rainbow pass me by  –  Cloud One featuring Margo Williams (Patrick Adams first well-known studio band … Patrick supposedly said that if Cloud Nine was great – Cloud One would be so much more)

Am i gonna be the one  –  Colors (Co-written and featuring Vanesse Thomas – daughter of the inimitable of the great Rufus Thomas … Vanesse first came to my notice as background vocalist of John Davis & The Monster Orchestra mixed by Shep Pettibone )

Without you  –  Spero featuring Dannie Scott (Released on Chicago’s After-hours  … for a short while Afterhours was the label of choice when  most of their 12″ were a magnet for the Househeads)
