The second in 'The Dive Bar Experience' one hour shows. Soul Sixties - covers of massive 1960s Rock hits by heavyweight Soul artists. But first, some words of '60s wisdom from the Camberwell Carrot himself - Danny: 'Politics, man. If you're hanging onto a rising balloon, you're presented with a difficult decision - let go before it's too late or hang on and keep getting higher, posing the question: how long can you keep a grip on the rope? They're selling hippie wigs in Woolworths, man. The greatest decade in the history of mankind is over. And as Presuming Ed here has so consistently pointed out, we have failed to paint it black.'
The greatest decade in history indeed! Songs so memorable that they got a reload whilst they were still in production & some of the artists featured here were almost as well known as their original version contemporaries. The highlights on this mix are Smith's Stone's covers, Etta's 'Hat On', Bert's 'Bad Sign' & Jackie's 'Fire'. Turn on, tune in & wig out!
