Don't Drop Out! Goes Yam Yam Yam Yada Yada Dada Vol 23

Playing tracks by

Superlatives, Joyce Hopson, Hot Sauce, Dennis Landry, Alice Clark and more.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global oldies chart, 3rd in the global northern soul chart, 4th in the global vinyl chart, 16th in the global r&b chart and 27th in the global soul chart.

Welcome back to our series of podcasts for the next instalment – this is #23, and this podcast is another coast to coast treat, with a fair showing from the southern states and a 7 tune focus on New York. The range covers almost all of 1965 to 1975 with a 5 tune emphasis on 1968 and there’s one new release that will knock your socks off – namely the Big Lee Dowell & The Cannonballs!!!
Hope you enjoy the selections.

Greetings GED and JIM - another brilliant show. Killer selections as always - really enjoyed the diversity of the selections too - something here for everyone for sure. From mellow, sweet and deep, mid tempo and some cool funky numbers too. Keep up the great work - hope to catch you guys out and about. Off to Brian and Tina's Spoonful tonight - take care JAS :)

STAND OUTS - in order (Probably says a little a bit about me as I'm I love the deep mellow soul and harmonies)
GEM ****- Mary Wells – Two Lovers History (Jubilee) - WOW. WHAT A TUNE - LOVELY IN EVERY WAY!
GEM**** Hot Sauce – Echoes From The Past - KILLER Track. SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL, LOVELY LEAD VOCAL & HARMONIES.
- Impressions – Check Out Your Mind (Curtom) - THE BRILLIANT CURTIS AND THE IMPRESSIONS. PERFECT RECORD FOR ME AND ONE OF THE GREATEST MESSAGE TRACKS EVER MADE.
- Alice Clark – Say You’ll Never (Never Leave Me) - GREAT TRACK. TOP SOUL SISTA ALICE - HER ALBUM IS GREAT ON MAINSTREAM RECORDS 1972
- Superlatives – Won’t You Please (Be My Baby) - CLASSY SPIN.SWEET VIBE - WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE!
- Maurice Jackson – Lucky Fellow - TIMELESS CLASSIC. LOVE LEROY HUTSON'S VERSION AND BOTH ARE MAGIC. NEVER TIRE OF HEARING THEM.
OTHERS I particularly liked too:
- Joyce Hopson – This Time (Revue) - HEARTBREAKER. DREAMY & CAPTIVATING.
- Dennis Landry – M’M’M’M’ Good - DID SOUND LIKE JAMES BROWN. REALLY LIKE THIS - COOL SELECTION.
- Maxine Weldon – I Want Sunday Back Again (Monument) - TOP SELECTION. SUPER VOCAL.
- Reuben Bell – Action Speaks Louder Than Words (Murco) VERY COOL MID TEMPO DANCER. I'LL BE ON THE FLOOR TO THIS WITHOUT A DOUBT.

Great to see you too Ged and to meet Tom as well. You've got him practicing his dance moves and those skills on the decks! What a great uncle :)

Pleasure! We do make an effort to include some contemporary releases in the podcasts - and this particular one is one of the best contemporary releases in recent times, so thanks mate for the effort in releasing it.

Here's a link to the article referred to in the cast. The preamble is by me, but the article is by Dr Rudy Aguilar; his doctorate is Chicano music and Culture. The Mystics will feature in a podcast very soon, possibly next month.
