Producer Tom Wilson († 1978) and pianist/organist Nicky Hopkins († 1994) died both on September 6. For many they are unknown but both had a considerable impact on the development of pop music in the second half of last century. Also on a September 6, blues singer/songwriter Jimmy Reed was born (° 1925), while 403 years earlier the Portuguese ship Victoria had completed a first journey around the world (1522). More than enough items to compose a playlist consisting of both forgotten gems as classics in the rock, blues, pop and R&B genre
