My new mixcloud. A couple of underplayed obscurities mixed in this time.

Top stuff, Paddy! I'd never heard that great cover of "Mama, keep your big mouth shut", but knowing your passion for early 60 black sounds, I assume it's the original versión. "Look away", that one has brought me good memories, a really well written soul track, in the same vein of gems like Ben E. King "It's all over".

Cheers GS  :)
Yeah Bo Diddley released it in 64 (sounds earlier) and The Pretty Things covered it in 65.
Look away's a belter, love the Latin break in it  :)

So it was ol' Diddley daddy then, I'm afraid I'm more acquainted with his late 50s recordings, but it seems he was still in top form during the 60s.
