Since my last podcast I have sold my record collection. As you might imagine, not an easy decision – 10,800 memories of my life, now physically gone, but of course, never forgotten!
Whilst packing them up I took the time to burn a few, the white labels & non released that back in the day when tracks were scarce, set me apart from those that didnt have them. Of course, things have changed now, with many being available digitally, or because others around the globe have also sold their collections. Thats besides the point for this set though.
So, this set is a flick through some days gone by, playing some stuff I used to think no one else had & sprinkling in some new bits to keep it all together.
I kick off with my favourite Loose Ends track to acknowledge their upcoming performance at this years Vocal Booth, then into a tribute to Maurice White of Earth wind & Fire who sadly passed away last Thursday. Inbetween we have a veritable smorgesboard of styles n flavours to keep you entertained for a little over 21/2hrs with a tracklist that went like this:
