Week 45 - Fri 11 Nov
Welcome to the RPM Seven Day Soundtrack, week ending Friday 11th November 2022. Here's some musical highlights from esteemed RPM colleague's sound systems; over to...
"As a milestone birthday looms I’ve been thinking of how my music tastes changed once I left school and began working in London. I suppose I met a lot of new people who introduced me to other genres and my first new love was Soul Music."
Bonus Track - "As the above are very short, I hope Tim will let me have a bonus track." (No worries....good to have you back," Tim.)
I Never Loved a Man (The Way That I Love You) performed by Aretha Franklin -
"Have a good week everyone. Cheers."
"Greetings from Swanton Morley. I think I've got some interesting variety this week. The first choice nearly made it into my 3 for last week, and I decided to include it this week on hearing that Mr. Hewson has a new book out (I think I'll read the Dylan instead). Whatever you think of Bono though, it must be admitted that when his band are good, they're very very good. Obviously there is a corollary to this."
"Even more goodies from various artist albums this week. Inspired by a play of Inez and Charlie Foxx's excellent 'Come by here' album, it's a selection of 'proto-soul' goodies from the early sixties."
Dee Clark- 'Raindrops' (original 7" US release March 1961. Vee Jay label. UK release Top Rank label. This from US only 'Original Oldies Vol 15' LP released 1973. Springboard label)

"A quick note: if you wanted mint copies of these three goodies on 7" it would cost you in excess of £100!!! These cost me less than a fiver!!!!!"
"And to Phil......... 'Yep'!! "
"Listening to some Classic FM this week....
"Trois de moi..."
