This week sees series 4 episode 3 of All Mod Cons, featuring The River by Bruce Springsteen as album of the week. This album which really introduced Springsteen to the general music public of the UK was very much in the style of Phil Spector with it's own wall of sound. Springsteen himself declared that The River greatly influenced his songwriting after that date. Also featured on the Tamla Train is the much loved Edwin Starr. His version of the Temptations album track, War, became an international best seller as an Anti-Vietnam protest song. Other highlights of the show include classic number 1's from Dave & Ansel Collins and T-Rex as well as a Valentine's section featuring Gene Pitney, Chicken Shack and Johnny Nash.
