Playing tracks by
Joe Simon, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Jimmy Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Wilson and more.
A round up of the vinyl we've bought to play at Great Big Kiss over the last month, plus a couple of old favourites thrown in for good measure. There's solid gold northern soul courtesy of Joe Simon, Maurice Williams and Sandy Wynns. Super danceable r&b from the irrepressible Jimmy Holiday and Dusty Wilson. Slightly funkier fare from Bobbi Lynn and Willie Mitchell. A storming version of "Lies" (made famous by The Knickerbockers) by Lulu. A glorious finger clicking rockabilly ode to the humble 45 rpm single by The Mark IV. And the untouchable genius of Aretha Franklin and Martha Reeves And The Vandellas. As always, then, all soulful life is here, dancing up a storm!
The next Great Big Kiss is our fifth birthday party. It's on Saturday October 10th at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, just a few minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube. More info here - http://www.howdoesitfeel.co.uk/greatbigkiss.html
