Great stuff chaps - and Brian, I agree; the Seger track is a stormer - like a heavier, more raucous version of "A little bit hurt" (heavy and raucous in itself!).

Absolutely, Nick - dissing of the Pelvis is unjustified and passe.

On the Soul side a couple of tunes that should again get more plays than they receive. The first is the great Rusty Springboard proving that she too was a great white Soul singer and could have graced many a Motown track and secondly, never mind the very over-played Ramsey Lewis and Marlena Shaw versions. This is the DEFINITIVE version. Let Mama take you to school..

4.   Dusty Springfield - Live it up https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPDguEjEitM

5.   Big Mama Thornton - Wade in the water https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfgBdccQYGg

Wade in the water? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR6TSvh3XXg
Twist in the morning!
You know me - I'm acting dumb. You know the scene - very humdrum. Boredom.

Chest: 36-37   Waist/Leg: 30/31   Shoe/Boot: 9

Bluesy sounding country with a stomping Northern style beat anyone?

Midnight Blues - Charlie Rich

And continuing the Elvis theme...

Ahh The Lemon Dips, always nice to see a great Psych band in a Northern Playlist, I understand they used to play The Present "Many's the Slip" at Wigan Casino.

Does anyone play out more later stuff such as this Weller track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcoKaUoMxbo

The Undertones Got to have you back

The Third Degree Mercy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YU12FrWWVqA ?

I've been known to drop the Third Degree single into my sets as well as:

I still like to drop this old Paul Hallam spin by The Clash's drummer (with brilliant vocals from Jimmy Helms) in from time to time as well:
