Playing tracks by
Cliff Bennett & The Rebel Rousers, Dexys, Geno Washington, The Ram Jam Band, Dexys Midnight Runners, Mama Cass and more.
As a warm up for Kevin Rowland's appearance at HDIF this Saturday, July 16th, here's a podcast of songs that Dexys and Kevin have covered over the years. There's barnstorming soul from Geno Washington, Zoot Money, and Cliff Bennett; solid gold classics from Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Cass Elliot and Sam And Dave; footstomping northern soul from Chuck Wood and Johnny Johnson, and three tracks by Dexys themselves - opening with their current single, a gloriously uplifting take on "Grazing In The Grass".
Kevin Rowland DJs at How Does It Feel To Be Loved? at The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1, on Saturday July 16th. More info here: http://www.howdoesitfeel.co.uk/hdifkevin.html
