That Searchers re-issue was given a glowing review in Shindig!

I'm a bit miffed that the SOHO jazz series is now being issued on CD with loads of extra tracks.  I bought them on vinyl and I feel a bit cheated!  >:(
On the jazz front there's the upcoming comp Martin Freeman And Eddie Piller Present Jazz On The Corner.  Both CD and vinyl have same track listing  ;D

DITTO fella !!!!

The latest Mojo has the Jam on the front and covers the " rebirth of Mod" , which of course has never really went away since. .

For some on here it will cover that period of time when one became captivated by the emerging Mod scene and for that reason it is worth a buy . Some good pictures in it too . .

I was interviewed for this (about my recollections of seeing The Jam at The Embassy Cinema, Brighton in April 1977) but unfortunately my contribution failed to make the final cut.

BTW, I've always thought that "To love somebody" lends itself particularly well to soul vocalists, as the Nina Simone's cover aptly shows.

Now, to the "new" PP Arnold's album review...

If I remember correctly Barry & Robin Gibb wrote "To Love Somebody" (at the request of Robert Stigwood) for Otis - But he tragically died before having a chance to record the song.

Recently received the two latest offerings from Jason Brummell's Suave Collective Publishing .... quite enjoyed jason Disley's Mod Noir effort "7 Day Fool" and currently thoroughly enjoying my friend Dave Dry's wittily written recollections of modding about in West London in the 60s ... "My Generation"

Highly Recommended :)

I'd give Sherry's a swerve unless you enjoy being hassled the second you walk through the door.

Seconded  >:(

My Uncle was an early '60s London Mod and photos of him from then through to about '67 he looks amazing but as the decade wore on he looks like a Woodstock reject and into the '70s ....Jason King!

It's amazing: as the 70s dawned, people that just a few years back dressed faultlessly turned into clowns overnight. The sheeps' flock effect, I guess.

Or perhaps they embraced change.

I must say, I hope being a moderator on a section of the forum containing a thread titled "Grooming" doesn't get me placed on the Sex Offenders Register ;)

It is a bit of a sad indictment of our times that a perfectly innocent word has a new definition that is a bit more sinister. ?

Isn't it just ?
