Playing tracks by
Jose Feliciano, Bobbie Gentry & Glen Campbell, Ry Cooder, Nina Simone, Nicky Thomas and more.
A gentle mix. As I can feel winter grip my limbs and rattle my bones, this mix is inspired by sitting in the garden, warming my shivers in the sunshine. It's thoroughly chilled, but should warm your cockles as it slides on down.
It starts with Jose Feliciano’s lovely version of Golden Lady and moves into the joys of Glen & Bobbie singing the beautifully written words of John Hartford. Nina proves reggae can also be her thing, Ben E. King gets Supernatural and then there's plenty of mama's soul & country pie, occasionally covered with lashings of sweet-reggae sauce. Warm your rattles and toast your shivers....bask in the sun and trust it to be what it’s called...
......It's just knowing that the world will not be cursing
Or forgiving when I walk along some railroad track and find
That you are moving on the backroads
By the rivers of my mem'ry
And for hours you're just gentle on my mind.
